Inventor-controlled Nariste Networks Pty Ltd has filed suit against Samsung (2:23-cv-00031) over the provision of certain smartphones, smartwatches, and tablets, targeting their inclusion of certain GPS/location-tracking functionalities, allegedly implemented in Samsung’s software and Google’s Android operating system. A single patent generally related to managing a “power-up phase” for a GPS system on a mobile device is asserted in the new Eastern District of Texas complaint, in which Nariste asserts that “[t]he GPS system is one of the most power-intensive systems of a smart phone”; that “users of Mobile Devices prefer a device that needs to be charged less frequently to a device that would have to be charged more frequently”; and that “[i]t is important to users of cellular phones, tablets, smart watches and other mobile devices . . . that the device consume power in an efficient manner”.
