Apple wants to add Samsung Galaxy S4 to 2014 patent trial

Apple wants to add Samsung Galaxy S4 to 2014 patent trial
Apple and Samsung each submitted a filing with the court on Monday in response to last month's request by Judge Lucy Koh for each company to narrow the focus of their claims for the 2014 patent trial between the two rivals. The sequel to last year's epic patent trial is scheduled to start next March.

In the filing, both Apple and Samsung listed 22 products belonging to the other that they claim infringe on their own patents. The big news here is that while the Samsung Galaxy S4 is not on Apple's list, it did add to the filing that after analyzing the new Android flagship model, Apple "has concluded that it is an infringing device and accordingly intends to move for leave to add the Galaxy S4 as an infringing product." The Cupertino based tech titan says that once it gets permission from the court, it will add the Samsung Galaxy S4 to the list, replacing another device which it will remove.

Apple's current list includes the Samsung Admire, Samsung Captivate Glide, Samsung Conquer 4G, Samsung Dart, Samsung Exhibit II 4G, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, Samsung Galaxy Note II, Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0, Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0, Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro, Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Samsung Illusion, Samsung Stratosphere and the Samsung Transform Ultra.

Samsung's list includes the Apple iPhone 3G, Apple iPhone 3GS, Apple iPhone 4, Apple iPhone 4S, Apple iPhone 5, Apple iPad, Apple iPad 2, Apple iPad 3, Apple iPad 4, Apple iPad mini, Apple iPod Touch (5th generation), Apple iPod Touch (4th generation), Apple iPod Touch (3rd generation), Apple MacBook Pro, Apple iMac, Apple Mac mini, Apple Mac Pro, Apple iTunes (including iTunes Match), Apple iCloud, Apple TV (3rd generation) and the Apple TV (1st generation).

I don't want to live on this planet anymore. Really Apple really? Your phone is not even near a bit to that Galaxy line in any damn way.

yes! boycott incapable, dumb, rotten Apple's iConboards! 1) "Phones most vulnerable among smartphones" 2) "Apple iOS Apps Leak More Personal Info Than Android" 3) "Quarter of iPhones have a broken screen, poll says." 4) "40% of iOS popular apps invade your privacy without any permission." 5) "FBI files: STEVE JOBS was a lying, power hungry, mad man." 6) "Steve Jobs: "We are shameless about stealing great ideas." " 7) "Italy fines Apple $1.2 million over AppleCare practices." 8) "Belgian consumer group files complaint against Apple over AppleCare warranty practices." please, dump all your iConboards.......the world will be better

Apple have more than $120 billions to spend on Lawyers, they don't care about consumers. People stop buying Apple products if Apple continue to crash Samsung in the Courtrooms. Boycott Apple products "Made in China" and bring the jobs to America.

yes what an ass backwards company, Apple is pretty much adding anything that Samsung releases just because the phone are rectangular and touch screen with a home button. BULLSPIT!

Yeah, this bullsh*t is starting to get real old. I will definitely start encouraging my friends and co-workers to buy android devices by using my Galaxy Note 2 as a prime reason why they should do so.

This is what happens when you're out of ideas, blame it on other people

Might as well add the Note 3 and the S4 mini Lol as IF Apple has a shot at winning this case.
