Fresh from a victorious verdict, Apple wasn’t about to rest on its laurels in its hunt for apparent justice over the alleged patent infringements by Samsung over its products. Last Friday, it launched another patent infringement lawsuit.
Keen observers of the earlier trial will notice that most of the Samsung products that were allegedly infringing on Apple’s intellectual property were rather old models. Perhaps it was to test the water for this new lawsuit, which target the more recent and successful Samsung devices. All twenty-two of them, in fact. Of course, most are just US and international variations of the same product (such as the five Galaxy S IIs), but the list sure sounds boldly impressive enough.
- Samsung Galaxy S III (International & Verizon)
- Samsung Galaxy Note
- Samsung Galaxy S II (Skyrocket, Epic 4G Touch, International, T-mobile, AT&T)
- Samsung Galaxy Nexus
- Samsung Illusion
- Samsung Captivate Glide
- Samsung Exhibit II 4G
- Samsung Stratosphere
- Samsung Transform Ultra
- Samsung Admire
- Samsung Conquer 4G
- Samsung Dart
- Samsung Galaxy Player (4.0 & 5.0)
- Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9
This lawsuit was filed for different infringements, which also leaves the door open for more devices to be added into the lawsuit.
As it stands, Samsung are set to appeal the earlier verdict, and recent reports suggest that they stand a chance of having the verdict overturned. Regardless, it looks like Apple is going for the jugular on this one, and it somehow reminded us of a hilarious comic strip posted recently on AllthingsD on this ongoing feud.
