Apple files notice to ban eight Samsung devices in the US

Apple had until August 29th to file its injunction with the District Court of Northern California, but the company was prompt and filed its injunction notice today. As reported by The Verge, the list of handsets that Apple wants to ban includes eight smartphones that are nearing the end of their life. The list is as follows:

  • 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

This list shouldn’t come as a surprise as many of the devices targeted by Apple’s lawsuit are older devices. Samsung’s flagship device is now the Galaxy S III and it is not included in the lawsuit because the suit was well underway before Samsung launched the phone on five US carriers this summer. This ban, if it is granted, is a moral victory for Apple, but it likely won’t have a big effect on Samsung’s sales stateside.
