Samsung Will Make All Necessary Changes Including Offering Stock Android On Its Smartphones Following Lost Suit Against Apple
After Samsung lost the case against Apple, the two companies are now carefully planning their next steps. Even though twenty-eight devices were found “guilty” of infringing on Apple’s patents, the Cupertino-based company asked the Judge to order Samsung to make changes to eight of them by the end of September, while the South Korean company said that it will do everything in its power to prevent the ban on imports against its devices.
Apple asked the judge to force Samsung to comply with the demands, or the devices on the preliminary lists will no longer be allowed to be sold in the United States. The preliminary list consists of names like Galaxy S II for AT&T, Galaxy S II for T-Mobile, Galaxy S II Epic 4G for Sprint, Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Galaxy Prevail, Droid Charge, and the Galaxy S II Skyrocket.
According to Samsung, all necessary measures will be taken as soon as possible in order to allow US customers to enjoy the goodies of its products without interfering with Apple’s patents. It seems like the most likely decision will be to offer pure Android experience on these devices, meaning that all aforementioned devices will be pre-loaded with stock Android OS.
A hearing has been scheduled for September 20th when the judge will decide whether Apple has valid grounds in trying to ban the sales of Samsung products in the US. Judging by how things look at the moment, the judge will definitely order ban on Samsung devices unless the South Korean company agrees to make the necessary changes in the following weeks.
