Apple lawsuit and the Galaxy S3

by J_Arbegust / August 25, 2012 8:43 AM PDT

Just wondering how the Apple verdict is going to affect the Galaxy S3. I read somewhere that it was only going to affect older phones. That is of course unless the verdict is overturned. Has anyone heard anything?

From what I have heard.....

....on a CNN report today, it could restrict the types of devices that Samsung can sell in the US. Hard for anyone to really predict with any certainty. Samsung has already publicly that they will appeal the ruling. It won't have as much affect on older devices, mostly the newer models.

Does anyone know if this lawsuit will effect/stop the sales of the G -S3???? I have been drooling over this phone for months and I don't want to lose out being able to get one.

Nobody can predict with any certainty yet, only time will tell. It shouldn't affect those devices already in the sales chain, but it will affect new devices introduced globally.

If the devices are banned in US,there are chances that price of these devices might come down in global market. Lets wait n see....
