Samsung drags Apple’s iPad mini into long running patent battle

The move by Samsung follows an order by a US court which allowed Samsung to include Apple's iPhone 5

By CBR Staff Writer

South Korean firm Samsung Electronics has once again escalated its patent war against Apple by claiming that the iPhone maker’s new iPad mini infringes its eight patented technologies.

Samsung asked a US judge to add Apple’s 7.9-inch tablet to a list of products it claims violate patents on radio signalling technologies.

The new devices include the iPad Mini, the recently upgraded fourth generation large-screen iPad, and the fifth generation iPod Touch.

Apple and Samsung are frequently dragging their recent products into the patent suits, which may lead to sales bans.

A Judge at the US District Court for the Northern District of California last week had allowed iPhone 5 Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy S III and Android 4.1 operating system to be added to the ongoing patent battle between iPhone maker Apple and South Korea based Samsung.

In October this year, Samsung claimed that Apple’s new iPhone 5 infringes eight of it patents associated with implementation of LTE technology.

In August this year, Apple had won about $1.051bn in a patent suit, which is claimed to be one of the biggest patent cases in decades, against Samsung.
