Date set for US phone ban hearing

Apple looks to ban eight Samsung phones in the US

After winning the court case against Samsung on Friday, Apple will now go ahead with a legal motion to have some of the company’s mobile phones banned in the US.

The hearing will take place on 6th December, where Apple will attempt to get eight Samsung smartphones banned, including the Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T model, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile model, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy S Showcase, Galaxy Prevail and Droid Charge.

On Friday, the jury in a US court ordered Samsung to pay out over $1bn to Apple after ruling that the firm had infringed several of Apple’s design patents.

Samsung had $12bn wiped off its market value on Monday as its shares suffered their biggest drop since October 2008.
