Apple requests U.S. preliminary injunction against the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone
Late on Tuesday, Apple brought a motion, in its second California litigation against Samsung, "to supplement the record regarding Samsung's Galaxy S III product". Apple formally asks the court for permission to add the S III as another product targeted by Apple's motion for a preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Nexus, a smartphone Samsung co-developed with Google.
Apple made this move approximately 20 hours after I wrote about the Galaxy S III being "the obvious next target". In my blog post I speculated that Apple might bring a preliminary injunction motion against it, possibly after awaiting tomorrow's preliminary injunction hearing. Apple decided to forge ahead now. Apple is on the offensive against Android. Earlier this week it filed an ITC complaint requesting an immediate import ban of 29 allegedly-infringing HTC devices. There's an important overlap: the "data tapping" patent that Apple is seeking to enforce against HTC's current generation of products is one of two patents Apple is using against the S III.
