Apple trying to ban Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note & Galaxy Note 10.1

On 24th August 2012, Apple scored a big win over Samsung in court. Samsung paid Apple a large amount of $1 Billion due to patent infringements. Apple’s all targeted device were old Samsung devices, most of them are not even being manufactured anymore as they have gotten old in technology and their newer successors have arrived but the Galaxy S II is still being sold in stores and is a big hit. So, the lawsuits by Apple was not much of a problem for the current Samsung devices, until now.

Even after winning Apple is still on war with Samsung. Previously, Apple’s hitlist only contained 21 devices but now the number have increased to 25. Apple recently added the Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Note and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 to their hitlist. This could be a major hit to Samsung as these devices are very recent, highly successful and selling very well.  Apple had originally gone after the Galaxy S III back in June, when it tried to have US sales of the device stopped before it was even launched. Judge Lucy Koh didn’t comply due to scheduling issues.

Apple’s list of allegedly-infringing devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy S III
  • Samsung Galaxy S III (Verizon)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note
  • Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket
  • Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch
  • Samsung Galaxy S II
  • Samsung Galaxy S II (T-Mobile)
  • Samsung Galaxy S II (AT&T)
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus
  • Samsung Illusion
  • Samsung Captivate Glide
  • Samsung Exhibit II 4G
  • Samsung Stratosphere
  • Samsung Transform Ultra
  • Samsung Admire
  • Samsung Conquer 4G
  • Samsung Dart
  • Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0
  • Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9

APPLE ARE BEGGARS AND THIEVES who stole other people’s idea and then sue others that they have copied their idea that they have stolen from, just others.

What would Apple have been now, if not Microsoft borrowed money to Steve job’s when he called Bil Gates for help.

Watch the video and consider the “0:21:25 to 0:24:21″ job’s what Steve says and, 0:39:24 – that “the iPhone include Google folder that launches iPhone big”

Time for Google and Samsung to pull in their circuits and services remains to be seen what will happen to Apple after.

Injustice can not last indefinitely.

Sooner or later it will be Apple’s greed to turn against them after all!

What is the role of Apple ?
Innovating or spending their time in court and study the phone of other manaufacter (specially samsung) to see whereas they infringe patent or not.
May be the are running out of money for the Iphone 5. or may be the are sure that consumer are stupid to make a good choice (Iphone) so to help us they will patent every thing and ban all the other phone (Samsung) to leave one choice the very best phone Iphone.

Should be interesting if Apple are able to ban Samsung in The USA and then as has been said on here that people buy phones from another Country to use, I wonder will Apple send in the Fruit Cops in to arrest the people still using Samsung phones, what a great bit of Negative PR that will be. All apple are doing is stopping better phone and tablets entering the market place as they are losing market share. In the UK and Europe Apple’s share was not as big as the USA.

PATHETIC APPLE!! I hope they can read this!! Samsung can make several varieties of Note, Galaxy and other gadgets but APPLE,,, I don’t think they are good enough to make a newer model or version of their STUPID IPHONE!! what they do is just wait for Samsung to post a new porduct, sue it then ban that product so that they wont need to manufacture a new gadget anymore…

I do not like what Apple is doing but, if it works why not to get BIG money easy way and most important to show everyone that even SAMSUNG can`t do nothing against APPLE……. Samsung, find the way please out of this shit, otherwise I will just buy next gen iPhone to make sure I have support from someone who can defend themselves…….

Apple traci coraz to wiecej nabywcow wiec musi szukac pieniedzy w inny sposob.
A corac wiecej ludzi zaczyna sie interesowac ANDROIDEM bo jest bardziej kompatyblny w europie niz APPLE. Jak dla mnie APPLE moga zamknac albo sprzedawac tylko tam u siebie niech nie zasmiecaja Europejskiego rynku jakims szajsem!!!!!

All this rubbish from Apple, surly they must know that people are turning away from them, even some of the so called “die hard applephiles” (if thats a word sounds good!).

If they ban them from the US then surly people can get the S3 from another country Canada maybe, I really cannot see it going that far.

Apart from the case held in the USA, two other courts in different countries, the first said they both had been naughty boys and slapped their wrists, the last one said that Samsung had not copied Apple.

So basically a American judge, jury, court have concluded that a foreign company did break some patent laws, and of course we all think it was unbiased.

Lol… they need to be brought down a peg or two…

LG had the first iPad out 9 years ago.

Apple stole the iPhone name from Cisco who had already a patent on the name

Who is Apple trying to kid? they steal ideas from other people….

Apple is communistic: we determine what is good for you. Android is freedom of speech. Aplle should have its headquarters in North-Korea.

Well it looks to me that Apple want to remove all devices from the market apart from their boring same ole phones and pads. Apple got kicked out of court here and a lot of other places as Android is the leader not apple.

Apple always and will be always like that. It already rotten on their company, employees, and CEO. They take someone idea and patent it, same as the beginning of Apple take Xerox mouse and window UI, and then patent it with their OS and ban anyone who use the idea. They never invent, the just take the idea and patent it. I wonder how patent organization give Apple the patent, oh I know, it because Apple have a lot of money to apply the patent and make it their own..
