Apple’s (AAPL) new tiny tablet is the target of an amended complaint from Samsung (005930), which alleges that the iPad mini infringes several protected technologies owned by the South Korean company. Samsung this week asked the United States District Court for the Northern District of California for permission to add several recently announced Apple devices along with a few earlier models to an earlier complaint that alleges various infringements. Along with the iPad mini are the fourth-generation iPad, the newest iPod touch and three earlier versions of the iPod touch, and all are said to be infringing the same patents Samsung cited earlier in the case. Samsung’s motion to add the six new devices has not yet been granted and the trial is scheduled to begin on January 8th, 2013.
