After winning one billion dollars from its historical lawsuit against Samsung in August, Apple is now going after the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet and Google’s latest Android operating system – Jelly Bean. The report comes from Bloomberg who says that the company is now telling U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul S. Grewal in a federal court in San Jose that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 has infringed Apple’s patent. It’s also adding Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to an existing lawsuit in California. Today’s announcement by Apple follows after Samsung filed a patent infringement complaint against Apple’s iPhone 5 last month.
Apple lawyer Andrew Liao told Judge Grewal that the Galaxy Nexus is the only phone running on Jelly Bean that Apple seeks to add. Liao says that Apple is also adding 17 devices that “could use a stylus even though the products do not ship with a stylus.” On the other hand, Samsung lawyer Victoria Maroulis says that Samsung is strongly opposing Apple’s intention of including 17 devices supporting stylus input. “By adding the stylus, Apple is going to enlarge the case significantly,” she said. Judge Grewal, according to Bloomberg, did not issue any ruling today because both parties could file even more lawsuits if either of them is denied.
