New iPad, iPad Mini added to Apple versus Samsung lawsuit

Samsung now claims that entire Apple iOS line violates its patents

Unsurprisingly, Samsung has filed to add the new fourth-generation iPad and iPad mini to its upcoming patent suit against Apple. In Samsung's view after analysis, both devices infringe on Samsung's UTMS cellular communications patents and other utility patents, which Apple says are standards-essential and not assertable for infringement. The second trial has yet to be scheduled, but is likely going to take place at the end of 2013 or sometime in 2014.

Samsung had already added the iPhone 5 to the second patent suit, and Apple added a manifest of 20 devices to the suit in August, and included the Galaxy Note, and Galaxy S III in a filing from this month. This trial and associated patents are the ones responsible for the brief sales embargo on the Galaxy Nexus phone earlier this year.
