Shortly after Samsung accused Apple of infringing patents with the iPad mini and other new products, Apple has fired back, asking to add the Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S III with Android 4.1, and four other products to the latest lawsuit. While Apple has already added some of the devices, like the S III, to its suit, they've since received software updates, leading to another round of requested inclusions. The Galaxy S III mini, Samsung Rugby Pro, Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi, and Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 round out the list.
Other patent infringement cases have already been decided in favor of either Apple or Samsung, with the former winning a US trial decisively earlier this year. However, this case could drag into 2014, with hearings expected early next year. So far, the case covers the iPhone 5, Galaxy Note 10.1, and all versions of the Galaxy Nexus running 4.1 Jelly Bean; US Magistrate Judge Paul S. Grewal will have to decide whether to allow additional products from the two companies.
