Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Submits Wish List of Samsung devices it Wants Banned in the U.S.

Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL) is going in for the kill now, after winning a favourable verdict from the jury in a San Jose federal court last Friday, in its patent dispute with Samsung.

The iPhone maker gave a wish list of all the Samsung devices it wants the court to ban from being sold in the United States.

Apple sued Samsung in April 2011 saying that the Korean company has copied the designs of its smartphone and tablets and used that to build its Galaxy range of smartphones that have become popular globally.

Judge Lucy Koh has set a hearing on September 20 for delivering her verdict on the ban.

On Monday Apple submitted the Samsung products that it wants out: Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge and Galaxy Prevail.

Earlier in June, Koh had banned Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 saying that it violated design patents. The Korean handset maker wants that ban to be lifted after the jury in its findings said that the tablet PC had not violated that particular patent, though in general Samsung was found to have violated three of Apple’s software patents, especially relating to the `bounce-back' feature and pinch-to-zoom feature.

Samsung has also asked for more time to prepare for the hearing and the court is debating whether to extend the date to allow the Korean company more time. Samsung plans task the judge to reverse the verdict and if it is unsuccessful in that to appeal against the verdict.

Apart from the sales ban, Apple is also planning to ask the court to triple the damages it was awarded to $3.15 billion since the jury found that Samsung had wilfully copied its designs.
