    Default Apple and Samsung Allowed to Add Devices to Ongoing Patent Suit


    U.S. Judge Paul S. Grewal recently granted requests from both Apple and Samsung to add additional products, like the companies’ flagship Galaxy S III and iPhone 5 handsets, to a patent dispute that is scheduled to begin hearings in 2014. It was noted that the additions were granted because both companies were “diligent in amending” their claims during the early stages of the lawsuit according to Reuters.

    The judgment is a part of Apple’s Galaxy Nexus suit, which was originally filed in February. Apple asserted a number of utility patents against the Samsung smartphone, a move which was countered by Samsung’s own claims against certain Apple products. The case is being heard in the same court as the Apple vs. Samsung patent trial that resulted in a $1.05 billion verdict against Samsung this past August.

    Apple has included Samsung’s Galaxy S III, the Galaxy Note 10.1, and the Galaxy Nexus version of Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. Samsung ended up adding Apple’s latest iPhone 5 to its countersuit, making good on a previous promise to assert claims against the handset. In Thursday’s order, Judge Grewal even went as far as making a special note to warn Apple of opposing future Samsung amendments to the lawsuit:

    Given the early stage of this litigation and the reasoning of this order, the court notes that Apple should think twice before opposing similar amendments reflecting other newly-released products — e.g. the iPad 4 and iPad mini — that Samsung may propose in the near future.
    The case is slated to begin in 2014, with each party asserting eight patent claims against the other.

    Because Apple/Samsung is really going to care if their devices get banned from sale or something in 2014 aren't they? The GS IIII and iPhone 5S/6 will be out by then...

    By 2014 hopefully there will be more devices to compete.

    Just someone make a new brand with a new phone so better that it makes an iPhone&Galaxy look like a piece of paper that can't do anything.

    Yeah, because Samsung is the one suing every handphone maker and grocery stores right?

    Instead of suing companies for "stealing" your product, make your product better than the other!!!! 😁
