LG G Watch and Glass wearables tipped for the future

Now that LG has confirmed the "G" will be their premium brand name moving forward, like the upcoming LG G2 smartphone, it's pretty safe to assume an array of other "G" branded devices are coming soon. Earlier today we reported on a GPad trademark filing, but it looks like LG has a lot more up their sleeves than that. Talk of an LG G Watch, G Glass, and other "G" apps to take on Samsung and more.

LG GPad tablet tipped in new trademark filing

The folks from LG are aiming to have a pretty solid end to 2013, and now it looks like we could be seeing a lot more than just the upcoming flagship LG G2 smartphone. After officially confirming the "G" will be their new premium brand name, like Samsung's Galaxy, we're now seeing some filings suggesting an LG GPad will follow the G2 smartphone.

Apple Store gains trademark while Google remains in the cloud

While Google seems intent on remaining in the cloud in terms of device sales, one thing has recently been made clear -- should they decide to go the retail route with stores of their own, they should not have them looking like an Apple Store. The reasoning here, Apple has recently been granted an official US trademark (from the USPTO) for their retail stores.

Samsung trademarks Galaxy Rush, Galaxy Amp, and Helm for future devices

In the usual Samsung fashion we are seeing three new trademark filings this week. This isn't really anything unusual because over the past few months we've seen tons and tons of these filings. Sometimes six at a time for Samsung, all being names for Galaxy devices. Today we have three new ones to add to our list while we wonder if they'll ever hit the shelves.

Samsung claims six new phone trademarks in the US

Here's a peek into Samsung's naming conventions for its new US phones. Fusible spotted no less than six new names floating around in the US Patent and Trademark Office: the Galaxy Forge, Galaxy Wield, Galaxy Mission, Galaxy Rivet, Galaxy Victory and the Lunge... which strangely goes without the Galaxy branding. There's no telling which phones these names allude to, but since Samsung's been pretty insistent upon keeping its Galaxy S branding intact since the second version, they probably aren't the Galaxy S III.

Samsung trademarks Galaxy Premier, Grand, and Next names

Samsung is no stranger to trademark filings. We saw four or so new trademarks for Galaxy devices earlier in the month and apparently they are at again before the month ends, and have just trademarked an additional three names. Samsung releases lots of smartphones in the high end range, and everywhere else. Today they've branded Galaxy Premier, Galaxy Grand, and Galaxy Next to their name.

Transformer Prime doesn’t infringe on Hasbro’s trademark, says judge

You'd have to be either really young or really out of touch with pop culture not to spot the similarities in the name of the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime and a certain group of autonomous robots. Transformers manufacturer Hasbro sure spotted it, and didn't take the unofficial association lightly: they sued ASUS over the name, presumably taking offense at the similarity to Transformers mainstay Optimus Prime and similar fictional characters. The International Business Times reports that a US federal judge ruled that there was no possibility of consumers being confused by the name, and thus denied a sales injunction.
