Apple and Samsung are starting a new episode of litigation, but Apple is also taking aim at Google and its Android operating system, according to reports.
The new Apple-Samsung trial starts Monday in San Jose, Calif. but the trial is really about Apple and Google's competing operating systems, according to the Wall Street Journal. This time Apple is accusing Samsung of patent infringement, but Samsung says that most of those features were licensed from Google -- in its operating system, Android. The argument will also be that Google had those features long before Apple.
Apple is claiming that Samsung violated patents for detecting data in messages and converting them into a link that can be clicked, background syncing of data, universal search used in its Siri voice-recognition digital assistant, an auto-complete feature that suggests words as a user is typing, and the "slide to unlock" feature.
