Patent Dispute: Apple takes on Samsung’s Galaxy S3

Apple attacks Samsung in a patent dispute concerning at least two functions in Galaxy S3.

Apple and Samsung are giving everything in their patent battle. Now, the iPhone maker sets its sights on the Galaxy S3, the new top product of the South Korean company. Shortly before the planned U.S. launch of the Galaxy S3, Apple sought an injunction against the Samsung device in California.

Apple argued that the Galaxy S3 contains functions from the previous model, Galaxy Nexus, which they already contended to be theirs. Specifically, Apple says that two patents were allegedly violated. One of these is unified search, and the other is data tapping – a function wherein the device detects data such as telephone numbers, and provides the user with appropriate options such as call.
