Apple has moved to identify several Samsung products they want to ban, among them is the Galaxy S2 and the Galaxy S 4G which is not sold in Australia.

Galaxy S2 that is sold in the3 USA by T-Mobile, AT & T, and Skyrocket.

A jury ruled that each device violated an Apple design patent, utility patent, trade dress or to have multiple infringements over the course of several years.
Despite having close to 50% of the mobile phone market Apple claims that the devices inflicted “irreparable harm” on the US corporation.
Late yesterday Shares in Samsung Electronics fell sharply in South Korea, with analysts saying the company’s big loss in its court battle against Apple in the US increases uncertainty over the company’s future products.
Samsung dropped as much as 7.7 percent, headed for the biggest decline since October 24, 2008, to 1,177,000 won (A$99) before trading at 1,187,000 won (A$100) on the Korea Exchange.
The nine-member panel in San Francisco, found that Samsung infringed six of seven patents for mobile devices in the first lawsuit between the dominant global smartphone competitors to go before a US jury and awarded $1 billion in damages (CDN yesterday). The verdict may also lead to a ban on US sales of some Samsung mobile products.
Samsung, which called the US verdict a loss for the American consumer, said it will file post-verdict motions to overturn the decision and will appeal if the filing is unsuccessful.
Analysts said a focal point from here will be whether the patent battle will spread to Samsung Electronics’ flagship Galaxy S III phone. The products that the US court found infringed Apple’s patents are all older models of Samsung’s mobile devices.
Samsung issued statements vowing to appeal the verdict. It will lead to fewer choices, less innovation, and potentially higher prices,” the company said.
