Post Ban this: Apple lists 8 Samsung devices it wants kept out of the US

Apple wants these devices banned in the US after its court win last week.

Apple has now identified eight of Samsung's devices that it wants to have banned from sale in the US following its patent victory last week. But while the jury in Apple's court case against Samsung said Samsung had willfully infringed in most cases, Apple has apparently focused its attention on devices that are mostly unavailable in the US already.

Apple's list of devices it wants to ban, published on Monday afternoon, 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
Some devices in the Galaxy S2 series can still be purchased for free or cheap through certain carriers'for example, AT&T currently offers the Galaxy S2 Skyrocket as a refurbished model for $9.99 (with two-year contract). T-Mobile still allows users to buy a Galaxy S2 for $150 (also with contract). But Samsung has come out with newer devices since the trial started last year; as such, the phones on the list are already on their way out in terms of popularity, so the impact of a ban may be minimal.
