Apple adds Jelly Bean, Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 and Samsung GALAXY Nexus in latest patent suit
Before the Apple iPhone 5 launched on September 21st, Samsung warned Apple that because of 8 LTE patents it owns, if the device launched on schedule, it would add the device to a patent suit it faces in San Jose against Apple. On October 1st, the Korean manufacturer did just that, leading to Apple's actions on Tuesday. Today, Apple spoke with U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul S. Grewal and stated that the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 tablet infringes on Apple patents and wants to add Android 4.1 to the lawsuit.

Apple wants to add 17 Samsung devices to its list of products made by the Korean manufacturer that allegedly infringe on Apple patents. According to Apple attorney Andrew Liao, these 17 devices should be added to Apple's claims because they can support a stylus even though none of them shipped with one. Amongst the 17 is the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, which Apple says is the only Android device with Jelly Bean that it will add to the suit. Samsung attorney Victoria Maroulis says the Korean firm is against adding the stylus enabled devices to the suit, stating that it will "enlarge the case significantly." She also pointed out that while Apple wants to add 17 devices, Samsung wants to add just one, the Apple iPhone 5. Judge Lucy Koh previously placed a preliminary injunction against the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, a decision that was overturned by an appeals court that said that Judge Koh absued her discretion.

Judge Grewal didn't issue a ruling today, fearing that if both sides requests were denied, it would lead to a number of new lawsuits. Grewal did say that the trial that these requests are being made for, won't start until 2014. But plenty of action will be going on next month in the same courthouse in San Jose. On December 6th, Judge Lucy Koh, who presided over the earlier patent lawsuit between Samsung and Apple, will hear some post trial motions including Apple's request to add to the amount of the verdict, Samsung's request for a new trial based on juror misconduct, and Apple's request for permanent bans in the U.S. for 8 Samsung smartphones and the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1. Judge Koh removed a preliminary injunction against the tablet after the jury did not find that it had infringed on Apple's design patents.

Apple's lawsuits are going down the drain in recent times...and Apple can add whatever they want to the list...it wont change anything...Apple'll still bow down to The King of Kings...Android Baby!
And Apple shouldn't get its a$$ up to where its head in the other place...winning against sammy was just one thing...you take on the entire android community!...and Google!...how dare Apple? If google actually came down to suing Apple...then the only thing Apple'll be fit for is producing canned fruit!

You know what?
God should sue 'Apple' for using the name Apple and making the sweet fruit so sour!!
I wonder if He's listening...
First i liked Apple products, thought they were cool (i still think they are, just not the best), then had mixed feelings with them, now i'm really starting to hate every inch of Apple real estate!!

Let me make things clear. I did not say apple products suck I mean to say their anti-competitor strategy sucks. Apple products are awesome and nothing is gonna change that fact.

Apple never ceases to amaze. As Bill Clinton was fond of saying on the campaign trail (I am paraphrasing) - '...that takes brass....'

Separately, I am wondering how Apple gets Android added to the lawsuit. So far, Google is not a party to the lawsuit. Google is the licensor of Android, so any ban on JB would normally require the licensor of JB to be a party to the suit.

How Apple gets to stylus' infringing patents should be interesting to watch. I have a distinct memory of a stylus being part of the Palm Treo 650. That would seem to cause Apple some problems with invalidity of any patent they claim to assert against an implementation of stylus functionality by Sammy.

Time to load up on popcorn and beer for the round of entertainment.

This is what has me confused too. Arent they going after Google by adding JB to the lawsuit?

I asked this question when MS was trying to sue manufactures for Google Maps. I think thats what MS gets the license fee for.

I just dont get it....

They can't sue Google because they're not selling Android.

So....if phone manufactures gave away all their phones for free....they cant be sued?

I still dont get it. And doesnt make sense.

If I take your idea.....and just give it away....aren't you still losing money?

Someone else tried to explain it and basically said the same thing you did. It still doesnt make sense.

Yes. They just have the patents. They do not develop any working product.
Mxyzptlk will now come out with some bs about intellectual property and FRAND patents.

apple is biting way more than it can chew but having the deepest pockets on the planet sure helps I bet.

Samsung, Google, and every other victim of these stupidly unjustified lawsuits are going to take such a massive dump on apple one of these days that it'll remove the word "patent" from its dictionary.

To charge somebody because some end users may use stylus (that is not included) with the device..

Well, guns should be banned because you can add silencer to it...
... everyday use stuff that could be used to make Molotov's cocktail should be banned as well...
... notebooks should be banned - you may install Linux instead of Holy iOS....

.... maybe I should be charged for rape...
... I have a stylus and potentially I could use it (even worse, I'm shipped with it...).

Maybe next Apple's application is to be mix of Minority Report and Matrix to guard people from themselves, to let them pay for innovations like new iOS maps and let them glorify the Apple's Holy Name.

The more I read about Apple the less likely I'll get one any Apple's products even if it's the only solution on the earth... just don't like bully's attitude.

Viva Mexico where smart iFone people live.

.......Maybe you should get your head examined. Every analogy you made involves violence......maybe there are some oppressive memories apples bring forth. I just hope you live somewhere in the Midwest.
