Despite just having agreed to send their CEOs and chief lawyers for an in-person sit-down to talk possible settlement options in their long-running, multi-country mobile patent dispute, Samsung and Apple(s AAPL) aren’t quite done flinging patent-related accusations at each other.
Late Wednesday, Samsung filed court documents in California, claiming Apple is infringing on eight of its patents. The action is a response to a February claim originally filed by Apple that Samsung was infringing on two of its patents that cover, among other things, spelling and auto-correct on mobile devices.
The eight patents named in Samsung’s counterclaim cover: “performing non-scheduled transmission in a mobile communication system for supporting an enhanced uplink data channel,” “signaling control information of uplink packet data service in mobile communication system,” volume control for external audio reproduction, multimedia syncing, data display, virtual keyboards, recording and reproducing digital images and speech and remote video transmission.
