If you’re unfamiliar with Apple’s complaint against Samsung, essentially the Californians claim that the Koreans have ripped off the iPhone and iPad. A bold claim indeed.
Apple recently described Samsung’s request to see the iPad 3 and iPhone 5 as “harassment”, and now – in the latest installment of the ongoing saga – Apple has amended and expanded its original complaint.
The copycat claim has been reworded for a start, and Apple isn’t holding back. It now says that Samsung has been the boldest of all copycats, and that its products “blatantly imitate the appearance of Apple's products to capitalize on Apple's success."
The original complaint named the Samsung Captivate, Continuum, Vibrant, Galaxy S 4G, Epic 4G, Indulge, Mesmerize, Showcase, Fascinate, Nexus S, Gem, Transform, Intercept, and Acclaim smartphones, and the original 7in Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The amended complaint adds 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 Galaxy S II.
There’s also a chance that Apple might move to stop the new Samsung Galaxy Tabs and Galaxy S II, among others, from being released.
