Fresh off the heels of its legal victory over Samsung last week, Apple named 8 Samsung smartphones yesterday that it wants pulled from stores and banned in the United States.
The legal verdict, which awarded Apple $1 billion after a jury found that Samsung infringed on 6 Apple patents, sent shockwaves throughout the mobile phone industry. Yesterday Samsung stock closed down 7.5% in South Korea, rival handset maker HTC, which also uses the Android OS, slipped 1.9% in Taiwan. Shares of Google also sank 1.4% in the U.S.
Apple has asked the court for injunctions on the following 8 Samsung devices:
- Samsung’s 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
Do you own a Samsung mobile device? Do you feel the verdict was fair? Are you more likely to switch to an iPhone now? Please post a comment below?
Apple always borrows from asian brands like samsung. The iphone 4 has the samsung galaxy 2 screen technology. Now samsumg creates and sells phones on highspeed with better quality and apple got annoyed. The latest Galaxy s2 & S3 is faster than any iphone and the screens are even better than the ones samsung has made for the ip4. Same issue with the samsung galaxy tab haha. Why u think apple wants to forbid that? Cos the have better quality gor less money. And free apps in andtoid while in my ip4 i have to pay it for exactly the same app. I just use now my s3 vos it works much faster, free apps and a way better screen.
Weird that here apple phones and laptops are seen as low quality tools. technology in europe and asia was always better than the US. Best proof is the Samsung smartphones, Tv’s, Sony, cameras, computers, and hell yes our cars are made with quality, are safe and not thursty like a 5,7 V8 drunkaholic engine with only 600hp. We got cars same ho, 10 times less oil and gas for the same effects. Than who got the best technologies? Usa? lol
Apple even asked samsung to build the screens for the iphones haha. Apple sucks and cant bear it that samsungs are 10 times better.
it wont APPLE ROCKS
Samsung phones suck
for Apple’s sake, let’s hope the iPhone 5 doesn’t “borrow” any interface ideas from Samsung
