Apple has decided to withdraw their patent claim against the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini. Samsung argued that the Galaxy S III Mini should not be included in the list of devices that Apple has in their patent lawsuit against them due to the lack of availability in the U.S. Apple agreed so they cancelled the claim against that specific device.
The Galaxy S III Mini device was released last month and it was not included in the $1 billion lawsuit that Apple won. Apple added the device last month after pointing out that it was available in the U.S. through Amazon.com. Samsung insisted that they were not “making, using, selling, offering to sell or importing the Galaxy S III Mini in the United States.”
