Reuters is reporting that Samsung will be amending its counterclaims against Apple in the two companies' second lawsuit in California, currently scheduled for trial in March 2014. Here's what Samsung is saying:

"Samsung anticipates that it will file, in the near future, a motion to amend its infringement contentions to add the iPhone 5 as an accused product ... Based on information currently available, Samsung expects that the iPhone 5 will infringe the asserted Samsung patents-in-suit in the same way as the other accused iPhone models."

This trial focuses squarely on software patents Apple is claiming are violated by the entire Android operating system (eg, the app picker, unified search, auto-correct), and has essentially nothing to do with product design.

Looks like ASUS is gearing up to announce the second iteration of its Turducken phone, the Padfone. A save the date for October 16th was sent out this morning to numerous Italian blogs, highlighting a dual-announcement - one in Milan, Italy, and another in Taipei, Taiwan, which is where ASUS is headquartered.

We haven't heard much about this updated phone-in-a-tablet-in-a-laptop before now, but rumor has it that a quad-core processor should be powering the device this go around.

MetroPCS just announced a new 4G smartphone from ZTE for its ever-expanding 4G LTE network. Dubbed the Anthem, this new handset offers mid-range specs under a 4.3" 480x800 display, including a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and Android 2.3. Past that, the pay-as-you-go carrier was overly-scant on details, but we'll assume it's packing 1GB of RAM and some sort of camera (5MP, maybe?).

So far as looks are concerned, it's not the prettiest thing we've ever seen, but it's hard to complain for around $220 (after MiR) with no contractual agreement.

We've all been there: you looked up the directions to the restaurant at home, and forgot them while you sat at work. Now your significant other is somewhat miffed because you're half an hour late, so you search for the address on your phone... and can't remember the French name with all the extra punctuation. Google's got your back: the latest version of Google Maps for Android remembers the searches you've made on the Google Maps website, and brings them up as you begin to type.

What's the best way to buoy a struggling airline that consistently ranks lowest among its competitors, is in the middle of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy and threatened to fire 11,000 employees just yesterday? Issue every flight attendant with a gadget worth two weeks' salary, of course! American Airlines is proud to announce that they're providing each and every flight attendant with a Samsung Galaxy Note (original), to aid them in quickly and competently gathering passenger data while in the air.

As you can see, $300 will get you 16GB of storage, along with a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB RAM, an 8MP rear shooter, 1.9MP front camera, NFC, LTE connectivity, S Pen, and Android 4.1 underneath that beautiful 5.5" display.

Wi-Fi Alliance, the go-to association for certification of wireless LAN technologies, today announced the launch of its Miracast certification program.

For those unaware, Miracast is a new wireless display technology that allows users to "transmit" or stream video or other media content from one device to another quickly, easily, and wirelessly using Wi-Fi Direct. The technology essentially offers a mirrored display experience with low latency and responsiveness that's just what you'd hope for.

Quick, Galaxy S III users on AT&T: check your device's settings for a new over-the-air download. Just be sure to temper your enthusiasm, because the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update (which we weren't really expecting for another month at least) is nowhere in sight. The latest version of the software is build IMM76D.I747UCALH9, which adds a number of small tweaks that users might find useful.

There's no official change log as of yet, but according to posts on the XDA forums, most of the additions are designed to make the phone a little easier to use.
