In the wake of Apple's $1 billion victory over Samsung in its high-profile lawsuit over patent and trade dress issues, The Verge reports that the company has officially requested U.S. sales bans on eight Samsung smartphones found by the jury to infringe upon Apple's intellectual property.
- 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
The report notes that impact of any sales bans would likely be negligible, as most of the cited products have already been discontinued in the U.S. in favor of successor devices.
Apple is requesting a preliminary injunction covering these eight devices out of the 28 devices at stake in the trial, but is reserving its rights for a future permanent injunction request in favor of moving quickly to ban sales of this subset of devices.

Apple innovated good enough to be copied by Samsung which is why Samsung is up to their neck in litigation.
They better not try, 'cause that's what I'm replacing my iPhone 4 with!
S3 is a much better phone, in my opinion, than iPhone. It isn't Samsung's fault Apple is slacking!
Didn't infringe. Can't.
Not quite. They attempted to add it to this list but judge dismissed it advising that it was too late to add another device to their ban list ;)
