Apple targets 8 Samsung phones for sales ban

Following last week's court ruling in the trial between it and Samsung, Apple this morning laid out which Samsung devices it wants banned from sale in the U.S.
There are eight in total out of the 28 that were included in the case. Those include:
• Galaxy S 4G
• Galaxy S2 AT&T
• Galaxy S2 Skyrocket
• Galaxy S2 T-Mobile
• Galaxy S2 Epic 4G
• Galaxy S Showcase
• Droid Charge
• Galaxy Prevail
In its filing, Apple outlined the specific patents the devices were found to infringe in the trial, which went on for a month and wrapped up last week. The device with the most infringements is the Galaxy S 4G. It was found to infringe two of Apple's design patents, three utility patents, and two claims of trade dress:

All told, the devices in question racked up about $460.8 million worth of the damages, or less than half of the $1.05 billion Apple was awarded by the jury. That number could still go up pending a ruling from U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh, who presided over the case.
Apple says this list is only "to address a portion of the immediate, ongoing irreparable harm that Apple is suffering."
The list in this filing does not include the Galaxy Tab 10.1, a device that the jury found to infringe on three of Apple's utility patents, but not Apple's tablet design patent. Citing those verdict findings in a filing late Sunday, Samsung filed to get a preliminary injunction against the device dissolved. Separately from this filing, Apple said that it still wants the 4G version of the tablet included in bans, saying it was not "colorably different," from the infringing devices.
