Additional Apple and Samsung Devices Added to Upcoming Trial
A federal judge recently agreed with additional stipulations that were filed jointly by Apple and Samsung in which each party sought to supplement its case in an upcoming trial slated to begin in 2014. The order on the parties’ amended joint stipulations, handed down by Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal, adds a number of new devices to the case and withdraws one as a result of court filings from November of 2012. The filing is part of Apple’s Galaxy Nexus case (which is separate from the Apple vs. Samsung trial).
Apple added the Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S III with Android 4.1, Rugby Pro, Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi and Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to the case while Samsung adds the iPhone 5; as stated in the stipulation. The Galaxy S III mini was originally on the list of devices alleged to have infringed Apple’s utility patents, but assertions against the device were dropped after Samsung reported that it was not actively importing or selling the handset in the U.S.
Since the Galaxy Nexus trial is scheduled to begin on March 31, 2014, there will likely be more devices added and further disputes filed before the fact discovery process is completed in July of this year.

Okay sure apple is a little out of hand but the fact Samsung hasn't learned not to violate apples petty patents is even more sad. Apple may be childish for patenting a lot and suing but they aren't nearly as dumb as too violate a patent and not change anything to fix the violations even after losing over a billion dollars due to it..

What do you mean Samsung hasn't learned? what is it about the Note II and the S III that "violates" apples patents? and why do you feel that Samsung is guilty but apple and the iPhone 5 is not?
Apple's complaint against Samsung newest devices are just because they are the newest devices AND are very very popular--so much so that the S III is just as popular as any iPhone.
If anything, apple was embolden by their cheap victory in a California court located just 20 miles from apple HQ with a jury foreman who had a personal grudge against Samsung--Not to mention the doctored evidence submitted by apple's lawyers (who themselves weren't too convinced that the Samsung devices might confuse customers shopping for apple)
let me ask you something, why do you think apple NEVER goes after the many Chinese manufacturers who are CLEARLY and blatantly copying apple's products?
