Back in April, Apple put on their boxing gloves and stepped into the ring with Samsung by accusing the Korean electronics manufacturer of copying its products. The legal battle went on for quite awhile, when in May, the Federal Court asked Samsung to provide Apple with samples of its upcoming and recently released devices so that Apple could inspect them. It looks like Apple isn’t satisfied with the original lawsuit.
AllThingsD has reported that Apple filed an amended complaint on Thursday, and includes more Samsung devices that have been accused of copying the iPhone and the iPad. The original complaint that was only 38 pages has almost doubled to a hefty 63 pages. In addition to the previously accused Samsung devices, Apple has added: the Droid Charge, Exhibit 4G, Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Prevail, Galaxy S (i9000), Gravity, Infuse 4G, Nexus S 4G, Replenish, Sidekick, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy S II.
How phones like the Sidekick and Infuse 4G ended up there, I have no idea, but it looks like Apple really is going all out to take Samsung down. The two companies have been told by the judge in the case to negotiate with each other, and it has been reported that the top executives of both companies will be meeting up to sort things out. I wonder how all this is going to end.
