Sequel Lawsuit over Tablet-Docking Phones Continues New Front in Smartphone Wars

ExoTablet, Ltd. (“ExoTablet”), filed suit against Overseas Electronics, Inc. (“Overseas”), on August 16, 2013, alleging infringement by the “Padfone” and “Padfone2” devices offered for sale and sold by Overseas.  The complaint mirrors the allegations of patent infringement by the “Padfone” and “Padfone2” asserted by ExoTablet’s complaint against Negri Electronics, Inc. in January of this year.  That case was reported on our blog in a report authored by Michael Cicero, which can be accessed here.

Other than the name of the defendant, the cases are virtually the same. 

The Negri Electronics case was dismissed on the same day the instant case was filed.  The new case indicates that perhaps further investigation identified a different more appropriate defendant.

The case is ExoTablet Ltd. V. Overseas Electronics, Inc., Case 1:13-cv-02740-TWT in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division, assigned to Judge Thomas W. Thrash, Jr.
