Samsung and Apple add more disputed gadgets to combat each other in court

The two largest smartphone selling companies continue to take a dig at each other by strengthening their own possibilities to combat the court trial

The Apple and Samsung legal debacle has started sounding like any other routine news. While users have become habitual of the frequent updates, the new move by Apple has received even more attention from all corners of the tech world.

Apple has decided to include two more devices - Galaxy Note 2 and S3 Mini - in an ongoing court case. Earlier, Samsung had proposed including iPad Mini fourth generation and iPod touch be included in a California case that is set to go on trial in 2014.

Responding stringently and immediately by asking to include several other Samsung devices including the Galaxy Note 2, the Galaxy S3 with Android 4.1, and the Galaxy S3 Mini, be covered by the case.

Other significant inclusions to the list of disputed gadgets are the Apple's iPhone 5, Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1, and the Galaxy Nexus smartphone in conjunction with Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS.

Earlier this year, the tech world was left terribly surprised when Apple had won a legal case in California court against Samsung. Apple had then alleged Samsung for violating exterior design issues and not just on patented software designs.

The ongoing case deals with more software patents, indicating a similar cloud burst on Google Android from Apple. The case is being overseen by U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal in a federal court in San Jose, Calif.
