Apple details Samsung Galaxy S4 infringement claims, motions to add Google Now to suit

Galaxy S4 and iPhone

After making clear their intentions to add the Samsung Galaxy S4 to a pending US patent lawsuit, Apple has filed the necessary paperwork, providing details on how the phone infringes upon the company’s intellectual property. The filing goes a step further andĀ amendsĀ the Google Now search app to the suit.

Apple identified five patents said to be infringed upon by the Galaxy S4, including two for Siri-related unified search, a patent for “performing an action on a structure in computer-generated data,” and one for “asynchronous data synchronization amongst devices.” The filing also identifies a patent for a “graphical user interface using historical lists with field classes.”

The addition of Google Now focuses on two unified search patents that were the subject of infringement claims against Google’s Quick Search Box. It will now be a part of the same trial, which is set to begin in early 2014 under the watchful gaze of Judge Lucy Koh.
