Many analysts are surprised by yesterday’s Apple’s request to ban sales of Samsung devices because it did not cover the latest mobile phones and tablets, which would ban could greatly affect the operations of the Korean company in the U.S.. Apple, in fact requested a ban on sales of only 8 of the 28 devices that were covered by an application for patent infringement and among them are not Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet (though he is already banned in the U.S. based on previous judgments), as well as Samsung’s main plume in the world of smart phones, the Galaxy S III mobile. Eight devices whose ban requested Apple introduces the Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 (AT & T), Galaxy S2 (Skyrocket), Galaxy S2 (T-Mobile), Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge and Galaxy Prevail.
Given that these older models are less accessible and not too affected by the operations of Samsung, this acts are more like a cautionary measure, but Apple’s intention to remove from the market all the devices in which they are patent solutions for which a court in San Jose said that are violated by a Korean company.
Hearing regarding the prohibition of these devices will be held on 20 September and many analysts believe that Apple has a big chance that the court is to meet demand.
On the other hand, it is assumed that Samsung will seek a delay ban until reconsider their judgment appealed from Friday and sources close to Samsung say that the Korean company is already working with U.S. telecommunications company on modification of unauthorized patents to keep the products on the market.
Although the latest Galaxy S III is not included in the complaint, analyst from firm Evercore Partners, consider that his ban could be later depending on whether Samsung promptly comply with the requirements of Apple and of course regularly pay a fine of at least a billion dollars.
This judgment could significantly increase Apple’s dominance in the U.S. mobile phone market but Samsung plans to spoil the presentation of new devices because they will most likely try to remove Apple’s patents from them.
Analysts also believe that Apple does not want to lead Samsung in a critical situation because he still wants to work with him in some areas.
