Apple Seeks Ban on 8 Samsung Devices in the U.S.

Last week, Jury found several of Samsung devices infringing on Apple’s patents and awarded $1 billion in demages to Apple from Samsung. Following this win over Samsung in a US court, Apple is now seeking a ban on 8 samsung devices in the US…


A notice filed by the Cupertino company with the court lists the devices it wants to ban from US sales which includes several Galax S and S II variants. The jury found 28 Samsung devices guilty of infringing on Apple’s patent, however, Apple is seeking an injunction on 8 devices because most of the other devices are already out of the product-life-cycle. The targeted 8 Samsung devices include:
  • 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

The Verge reports:

Despite having received a finding of infringement from the jury on most of the products in play in case, it looks like Apple is only going after eight. This isn’t terribly surprising given the fact that many of the products in the case are no longer available in the US.

It’s interesting to note here that Google’s pure Android smartphone: Galaxy Nexus, which is manufactured by Samsung, in not present on the list. Separately, Bloomberg notes that Apple is seeking a ban on the cellular version of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. Notably, this is the tablet that the U.S.-based jury believed did not infringe Apple’s patents.

A hearing on the matter is scheduled for September 20th.
