Samsung has failed to win a presidential veto of an International Trade Commission (ITC) ruling against some older Android devices, according to Android Central. The ban shouldn't have too much material effect on Samsung, however - it only covers older devices.
Devices affected by the ban, the result of legal action brought by Apple in 2011, include the Galaxy S 4G, Fascinate and the original Galaxy Tab, according to The Verge. The ruling will not affect the vast majority of Samsung-made Android phones and tablets currently sold in the U.S.
It's interesting to note, however, that while the administration refused to veto the ITC ruling against Samsung, they did veto another ruling against Apple earlier this year.
