Is your smartphone in danger of being taken off the market? You can find out now as Apple has listed the Samsung devices it wants banned from the U.S. market following its sweeping legal victory over the South Korean electronics manufacturer. Of course, a judge will ultimately decide which devices are worthy of an all-out U.S. ban, but regardless, here are the ones on Cupertino's kill list, per The Associated Press:
Galaxy S 4G
Galaxy S2 AT&T
Galaxy S2 T-Mobile
Galaxy S2 Epic 4G
Galaxy S Showcase
That's quite the lineup, considering the electronics manufacture already has to pay $1 billion in damages. According to The AP's Paul Elias, "the question remains whether Samsung and other Apple competitors will have to redesign their smartphones to avoid infringing Apple's patents." But "most analysts agree the verdict sends a threatening message to device makers like Samsung who use Google's Android operating system."
