Apple Chooses What to Ban
After the final verdict of the Apple vs. Samsung case that we read earlier (missed it? Click here to catch up), the court gave Apple till Monday, 27th August to decide which Samsung phones would actually be banned. Samsung has till the 20th of September to try defending these phones, failing which, they will banned within the United States.
Apple claims that since the release of certain Sumsung phones, their iPhone has seen a dip in sales. They therefore link Samsung‘s phones to the loss of interest in the iPhone. The court seems to think otherwise, claiming that Apple may have seen a dip in sales due to flaws in the iPhone design. Back in 2010, with the release of the iPhone 4 (as remarkable as it was), iPhone customers all around the world began to complain about network signal drops. This seemed to have been caused by a flaw in the design of the iPhone.
The court believes that incidents such as the one above caused customers to switch to a cheaper alternative, one that offered about as much as the iPhone did. Apple tried to tackle the complaints back then by saying that customers were holding the phone wrong, but the picture on the right says otherwise.
- 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
The patents that Apple claims that Samsung has infringed upon in these 8 phones are listed in the image. Honestly, knowing Apple, I thought that they would go after a lot more. All the same, if you’re a collector and you like Samsung, then you might want to buy these phones quick!
