Apple wants US ban on 8 Samsung devices

Galaxy S 4G, carrier-specific Galaxy S2 among them
Following its $1.049 billion court victory Friday, Apple is asking for a U.S. sales ban on eight Samsung devices, according to reports.
Those devices are:
- 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
Apple came up with the list after reviewing the verdict, decided by a nine-member jury. The Galaxy S2 ban is carrier specific.
The ban of eight may seem small when considering Apple was going after 28 devices during the course of the trial; however, the ones it picked out are the only products still sold in the United States.
Each device was found to violate a design patent, utility patent, trade dress or have multiple infringements over the course of several years.
According to CNET, the damages tied to the eight devices (all smartphones) is about $460.8 million (£291.8).
Apple will have to prove the continued sale of these devices inflicts "irreparable harm" on the corporation in order for a court to impose a ban.
TechRadar reached out to Samsung regarding if and how they intend to fight the proposed injunctions.
