These are the Samsung phones Apple wants banned in the U.S...
Looks like Apple isn't wasting any time listing the Samsung Android phones they'd like to have banned in the U.S. following their $1 billion win last week. And that's a good thing, because a lot of these phones look so old they're probably not being sold much if at all anymore, so the faster they're not sold, the better... right? Both The Verge and FOSS Patents snagged the list:
- 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
While it's possible a regional carrier might have been planning to announce some of those as part of their 2012 lineup, given that the Galaxy S3 is the new hotness, I'm not sure how many, if any, actual consumers will suffer from a ban on the old broken.
However, this is just the beginning and Apple will no doubt try to have the ban set up in such a way that it catches any additional, past, present, and future devices that look to be infringing on the same patents. For example, Apple has also asked to have the ban extended on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 cellular variant.
