The case verdict here in America involving Samsung and Apple, comes in unfortunate timing as a their similar case in Korea was met with a split decision. Apple could ask for an injunction on the devices in question from both cases. While the American verdict is a serious blow to Samsung in terms of damages to Apple, I feel the Korean verdict is almost as crucial even as a split decision. Anytime court cases are held on home turf, it is always best to wish for majority win. Samsung has more to loose than Apple on their home turf for devices. Samsung will have to rely soley on the SGIII phones for sales while Apple has pretty much full reign of product line of phones to remain on sale in Sammy's territory. In Chess, it is best not to have your enemy's most powerful pieces surrounding your home area.

Now, the answer to your question is The SGII was indeed a target and was found to infringe on Apple's patents. If Apple gets their way, no further SGIIs will be sold.

However, The good news is that Samsung is a huge company and their SGIII has been cleared of infringments. This phone has jettisoned their phone status to tough competion for anyone. It shows that they do have the capability to build an attractive device and use savvy marketing to sell as well. So if Sammy can keep their nose clean and remain clear of Apple's designs with further products, they will not be scathed.

Now, if I HTC would only ramp up their marketing. I would love to see more people view the exceptional device they currently have with their one series. My hands down choice!
