Apple is fighting back against Samsung's recent move to add some of its newer devices to the ongoing patent infringement war the two have been fighting in courts around the world. After successfully getting the iPhone 5 added to a U.S. lawsuit, Samsung has asked the U.S. District Court in San Jose to add the iPod touch 5, iPad 4, and iPad mini to the list of devices that infringe on its patents.
But Apple is not sitting on its hands: it has also asked the same court to add several Samsung devices including the Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S III with Android 4.1, Galaxy S III mini, Samsung Rugby Pro, Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi and Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
"Apple has acted quickly and diligently to determine that these newly-released products do infringe many of the same claims already asserted by Apple," the company said in the recent court filing.
We'll have to wait and see if the judge overseeing the case will add all these devices on both sides. If that happens both company's newest and most popular devices will be covered in the lawsuit...
