Apple may ask for banning 8 Samsung smartphones


In the wake of its patent trial victory against Samsung Electronics Co., Apple has given a U.S. federal judge a list of eight Samsung products it wants pulled from store shelves and banned from the U.S. market, including popular Galaxy model smartphones.
U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh asked for the list after a jury in San Jose last week slammed Samsung with a $1.05 billion US fine, finding that the South Korean technology giant had "willfully" copied Apple's iPhone and iPad in creating and marketing the products. Samsung plans an appeal.
The products Apple wants off the market are all smartphones:
  • Galaxy S 4G
  • Galaxy S2 AT&T
  • Galaxy S2
  • Galaxy S2 T-Mobile
  • Galaxy S2 Epic 4G
  • Galaxy S Showcase
  • Droid Charge
  • Galaxy Prevail
Koh on June 26 banned the Galaxy Tab 10.1 from the U.S. market after finding it likely violated a "design patent." Samsung is now asking for that ban to be lifted after the jury found the computer tablet didn't infringe that particular patent, but it did find it infringed three of Apple's software patents that cover the popular "bounce-back" and pinch-to-zoom features.
