    Samsung

    Here's hoping Verizon ships before Apple wins a preliminary block.

    Apple Inc. (AAPL) sought to add infringement claims over six more Samsung Electronics Co. (005930) products including the Galaxy Note II to its multibillion-dollar patent lawsuit against the South Korea-based company.

    Apple has said that Samsung products running on the new Android Jelly Bean operating system, and other products running on the Ice Cream Sandwich system should be added to the case, according to filings in San Jose federal court in California. Jelly Bean is Google Inc. (GOOG)s latest version of the Android operating system that runs on Samsung mobile devices.

    Apple yesterday asked the court to add to its case the Galaxy S III, running the new Jelly Bean system, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wifi tablet computer, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the Rugby Pro and Galaxy S III mini, according to court papers.

    Apple has acted quickly and diligently to determine that these newly released products do infringe many of the same claims already asserted by Apple, and in the same way that the already-accused devices infringe, the Cupertino, California- based computer-maker said in its filing.

    The claims were filed as part of a second patent suit between the mobile-device giants in San Jose federal court in which Samsung is targeting Apples iPhones, iPad and iPod Touch devices, while Apple has named more than 20 Samsung devices.

    I have one on pre-order with Verizon also - no worries. Nothing will happen fast with the case this year.

    the hearing isn't until December 6th

    and this judge got smacked recently by the circuit court above her, so i'm sure she's going to proceed with extreme caution

    I am so tired of Apple and their lawsuits. This is way out of hand. I wouldn't use an Apple product even if someone gave it to me. I do prefer Android. I hope Apple gets what they deserve...to lose. Rotten to their core....shame on them!

    Well let's see they lose cases overseas and pieces of the US case keep getting overturned, so I think on the 6th the court will overturn the whole thing.

    So typical of Apple, they hate competition. If you notice most IPhone users are the same way they think their special and privileged.

    Apple also claims that the "new" iPhone 5 is innovative. I like Apple hardware. I use a Mac. I like their iMac operating systems. However......they are a company that had the benefit of being the underdog for a long time. Once they became the top dog in the mobile market they got complacent. Now they just want to litigate their way into better market share rather than come up with anything new. They have gotten spanked in Europe. Now they are grasping at straws.

    Nothing to see here. Move along..........

    It is sad how Apple turned the market on its head with their first phone, yet the market so quickly adapted to the changing landscape and came out with better OS's, hardware and innovated better than Apple. Now that they don't have the market leading product they are simply trying to stifle innovation by litigating it out of existence. I won an iPad 3 at work and was willing to give the iP5 a shot with LTE on Verizon. In less than a month both were sold off and the cash was quickly put into a GN 10.1 tablet and a pre-order for my GN2. Having used Android for years I know its where the true innovation is.

    Perhaps Judge Koh will see this for what it is, simply the last dying gasps of jobs legacy and dismiss it as groundless. One can only hope.

    I don't think a persons phone speaks that much to a persons personality. You only notice that some are like that because we always notice the douchebags. A lot of people just use the phone that works for them and that's all that matters

    Amen. I love my Mac Book Air and OSX in general (beats the crap out of Winblowz). And loved my previous two iPhones. But they no longer are setting the bar; in fact many would argue they aren't even keeping up with the Jones' very well at this point. I dumped all my AAPL when it was over $700 and took the 2,000%+ ROI in my Roth IRA. I'll join in the camp of "without Jobs, Apple isn't the same company". Sure looks that way right now.

    Apple is a great marketing company that makes good products.
    Apple hasn't really innovated a lot but rather take what is already there, tweak, repackage and market it better than anyone else.
    They have built a brand that sells itself.
    Many people buy Apple products to be cool and no nothing about competing products. They look down on or won't consider android phones because they are NOT Apple even though many could run circles around the i5.
    Those are the people that give Apple and iPhone users a bad name.
    Most android buyers make purchases based on the individual phone as opposed to brand.
    Although some may lean toward a brand or User Interface that they have had a good experience (or away from if bad experience), we are still willing to buy Moto, Sammy, or HTC devices if they meet our needs.
    I bought my wife an iPhone because it was the best phone for her needs. It was her first smartphone. The solid design and User Interface was easy to transition to since she had an ipod.
    She doesn't have the patience to manage a switch of music from itunes to an android phone along with the changes and tweaks inherant with the Operating System.

    I don't hate Apple and would consider an iPhone if it was the best product for my needs.
    But they don't include needing to let everyone know I have an apple (you ever notice that the back is cut out of most of their cases so the fruit shows through) or being like everyone else.

    I don't think the infringement verdict will hold up, but it allows Apple to keep the public perception of being the innovators.

    Well said! Your right every case has the back cut out to show the apple. While I agree that people will buy what meets their needs it seems Apple has become more of a status symbol and need a window in their cases to scream "hey look at me!"

    I thought this was added to a new trial and not the one that has already gone through.

    Yep and Samsung has since come out and said they will stop supplying apple with display components.

    Samsung makes about 80% of the guts of the iPhone and it wouldnt surprise me if they cut off more supplies/components.
