A requested ban by Apple on eight Samsung
devices will not go into effect until December at the earliest after
the judge in the high-profile patent case pushed back a hearing on
the issue, Bloomberg News reported Wednesday.
Apple requested the permanent injunction against the Samsung mobile devices after a jury found last week that the South Korean company had violated six Apple patents and awarded the iPhone maker 1.05 billion dollars in damages. Judge Lucy Koh said the injunction will be considered on December 6.
Samsung has vowed to appeal the verdict, which if upheld could have a dramatic impact on the smartphone market by forcing the company, and all other manufacturers who use Google's Android operating system, to drastically change their designs to differentiate them from Apple.
