Samsung Galaxy S2 to Be Banned by Apple

August 28, 2012|9:15 am

Apple secured a big victory over Samsung in court this month and the company will now seek to ban several of its competitor's products.

There are many popular Samsung smartphones that Apple hopes to stop the sale of, including variants of the successful Samsung Galaxy S2.

The Galaxy S2 turned the tables in Samsung's war against Apple helping the company to become the highest selling smartphone maker in the world. Its successor, the Galaxy S3, has already sold millions of units and the handset has only been out for three months.

Apple hopes to ban the sale of the Galaxy S2 on three of the major carriers in the U.S. including AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint where it is known as the Epic 4G Touch. It also wants to ban LTE variant of the device known as the Skyrocket that is currently available through AT&T.

Other devices Apple is looking to ban include the Galaxy S 4G, the Galaxy S Showcase the Droid Charge, and the Galaxy Prevail.

Bloomberg also reported on the matter, stating that Apple will also seek a ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 even though the product wasn't covered by an Aug. 24 verdict in the patent trial.

"While the cellular version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was not included in the verdict form, it is not colorably different from the products that the jury found to be infringing as to some Apple utility patents, and thus should be covered by an injunction against sales of products that infringe those patents," said Apple in the filing for the ban.

The patent trial for the two companies ended quite bad for Samsung, as the company now has to pay Apple more than $1 billion for infringing six mobile device patents and will have some of their most popular handsets and tablets banned.
