Apple has added the Google Android Jelly Bean operating system and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet to its ongoing US lawsuit against Samsung.
The items were added to the lawsuit on Tuesday, after Apple issued the complaint to US magistrate judge Paul Grewal at a Federal Court in San Jose, California.
According to Bloomberg, Apple's complaint against the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 pertains to the S Pen stylus it comes bundled with.
The exact reason for the complaint remains vague as Apple's iPad and iPhone devices are yet to come bundled with stylus peripherals.
The reason for the complaint against Jelly Bean is similarly vague and at the time of publishing Apple had not responded to V3's request for comment.
Ovum principal analyst Adam Leach told V3 the details of the suit are probably less important than the effect the additions will have on Samsung and Android.
"I think ultimately they know they're not going to be able to stop Samsung and Android from trading. They're just going to try and slow them down, tying their time money and executives up in a court case," Leach told V3.
"The only problem is they have to spend their own time and company resources presenting and making these case. But then if you look at the amount of revenue Apple has they don't have any problem spending their money this way."
