Apple lists Samsung phones it wants nixed

Apple Inc. on Monday gave a federal judge a list of eight Samsung Electronics Co. products it wants pulled from shelves and banned from the U.S. market.

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh asked for the list after a jury in San Jose, Calif., last week slammed Samsung with a $1.05 billion verdict, finding that the South Korean technology giant had "willfully" copied Apple's iPhone and iPad in creating and marketing the products. Samsung plans an appeal.

Shares of Apple on Monday touched a record high and finished at $675.68, up 1.9 percent. That rise boosted Apple's stock-market value, already the highest in the world, by $11 billion to $633 billion.

The products Apple wants banished from the United States are all smartphones: 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.

A key Samsung product already banned was the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer. Koh on June 26 blocked the tablet from the U.S. market after finding it likely violated a "design patent." Samsung Monday asked for that ban to be lifted after the jury found the tablet didn't infringe that patent.

In addition to the sales bans, Apple also plans to ask the judge to triple the damages to $3.15 billion because of the jury's finding that Samsung "willfully" copied Apple.

The list Apple presented to the court Monday represents devices it believes are still being sold in U.S. stores, including several versions of the company's popular S2 phones introduced last year.

Samsung's newest and hottest-selling smartphone, the Galaxy S3, was not part of the lawsuit and is unaffected by the jury's verdict. -- AP
