Fresh Apple lawsuits target 15 Samsung gadgets
Design ethos nicked, allegedly
Apple is having another go at Samsung, telling a German court that it thinks ten of the South Korean giant's phones ape its established design language.
It's going after five Samsung tablets too, in a separate action.
The iPhone maker wants the Dusseldorf Regional Court to ban the allegedly offending gadgets from sale , Bloomberg reports.
Among the handsets Apple claims took their design cues from its own products: the Galaxy S Plus and the Galaxy S II.
The tablet-centric suit targets various Galaxy Tab models, including the 10.1N, introduced by Samsung in November 2011 to bypass a ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 . This despite being told by the Dusseldorf court that Apple is unlikely to prevail in a case against the 10.1N. ®
