Apple Accuses Samsung's Version of Android and the Galaxy Note 10.1 of Infringing Patents

Continuing the seemingly endless patent lawsuits between Apple and Samsung, Apple today argued that Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet infringes on its patents, as well as Samsung's implementation of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system on its devices.

Apple has also said it wants to add a number of Samsung products with stylus pens to its lawsuit as well, Bloomberg reports.

Andrew Liao, an Apple attorney, told Grewal today that the Galaxy Nexus is the only phone with Jelly Bean that Apple seeks to add to the patent complaint. Liao also said Apple wants to add 17 devices that could use a stylus even though the products don’t ship with a stylus.

Victoria Maroulis, an attorney for Samsung, said the company wants to add only one product, the iPhone5, to its complaint. Maroulis said Samsung opposes the addition of "stylus products in 17 new devices" to Apple’s claims.

"By adding the stylus, Apple is going to enlarge the case significantly," she said.

The case regarding the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Samsung's implementation of Jelly Bean is scheduled for trial in 2014. Judge Lucy Koh will also consider appeals in the previously decided Samsung v. Apple case in December.

Just give it up Apple. You've gone to far. Spend the money on innovating. Not suing.

When will this boorish behavior by Apple and Samsung ever end? It's getting to the point that I hope both companies fail and fade away.

Seems lately, Apple's idea of "innovation" is over-charging and under-delivering.
