Apple takes patent fight to six more Samsung devices

iPhone-maker fires back
Apple filed a motion on Friday to widen the scope of its California infringement case against Samsung to include the Galaxy S3 Mini, the Galaxy Note 2, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wifi, and the Rugby Pro.
Apple's existing California state lawsuit had already included the Galaxy S3 in its protective patent gripe, and it looks like this escalation is just an extension of those original complaints.
Now, just because the motions have been filed doesn't mean that the charges are set in stone. The additions have to be approved by Judge Paul Grewal on January 25, 2013 in order to have any legal ramifications.
The upcoming California trial could last well into 2014, so get ready for a lot more of this back and forth to come.
