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
