Apple amends lawsuit to cover Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung GALAXY Note

Apple amends lawsuit to cover Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung GALAXY Note and more
With Samsung threatening a lawsuit against Apple if the next iteration of the Apple iPhone has LTE connectivity, Apple has amended a suit filed against the Korean tech giant in February to include two of Sammy's biggest selling models. The amended complaint now includes both the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung GALAXY Note. Each device has sold in excess of 10 million units.

To be precise, Apple is adding the Samsung Galaxy S III, the Verizon variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III, the Samsung GALAXY Note and the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1. to the original 17 devices listed in the original filing. Those devices include the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, Samsung Epic 4G Touch, Samsung Galaxy S II, T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung GALAXY Nexus, Samsung Illusion, Samsung Captivate Glide, Samsung Exhibit II 4G, Samsung Stratosphere, Samsung Transform Ultra, Samsung Admire, and the Samsung Conquer 4G to name the smartphones. Other devices included the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0, the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0, the Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus and the Samsung GALAXY Tab 8.9 tablets.

The patents that Apple is claiming  that Samsung infringed upon include the '647 (Data detector), '721 (Slide to unlock), '172 (Word completion) and '604 (Universal search). The '647 patent was used to temporarily block the HTC One X and the HTC EVO 4G LTE from import into the U.S. earlier this year.

The battle continues.
