Apple Seeks to Ban Eight Samsung Android Devices

samsung apple fightIf you’ve been following the Apple/Samsung case, you know by now Apple won. While they didn’t get their $2 billion they were looking for, $1.049 billion isn’t too shabby. Now Apple is taking the next step and naming the phones they would like banned from sales. These phones have been deemed by the jury to have infringed on a number of Apple patents. Some of the phones no longer exist on retail shelves but for whatever reason, Samsung still wants them gone.

  • Galaxy S 4G
  • Galaxy S2 (AT&T)
  • Galaxy S2 (Skyrocket)
  • Galaxy S2 (T-Mobile)
  • Galaxy S2 Epic 4G
  • Galaxy S Showcase
  • Droid Charge
  • Galaxy Prevail

For a better visual aid, here’s exactly what the jury ruled on with these devices: apple samsung design patent list Do you think banning any of these phones is going to really help Apple or hurt Samsung? Samsung’s got the Galaxy S III and soon the Galaxy Note II to sport. As long as they don’t screw up again (and please don’t), banning the sale of these phones shouldn’t do much to Samsung. The question I had was what happens with phones that Samsung renamed and resold on another carrier like the Droid Charge and Samsung Aviator on US Cellular. Are they not affected by this?
