This will be a huge hit on Samsung if these smartphones are not allowed to be sold in the US:
Samsung on Saturday accused Apple of resorting to litigation in an effort to limit consumer choice after the iPhone maker said it was seeking to stop the sale of Galaxy S III smartphones in the United States.
Fresh from its $1 billion court victory over Samsung Electronics Co, Apple Inc., in a separate case, asked a federal district court in San Jose, California, on Friday to add four more products to a list of Samsung goods that Apple says infringe its patents.
The new list of 21 products includes Samsung’s flagship smartphone Galaxy S III as well as the Galaxy Note, another popular Android phone. If the court finds those devices are infringing Apple’s patents and irreparably harming the U.S. company, it could temporarily halt sales in the U.S. market even before the trial begins.

You can read more at the link, but if the Galaxy S III and the Note are banned then it has to be because of the Android operating system because each of these phones does not look like an iPhone. If these phones get banned what would stop Apple from saying other phone manufacturers copied them as well because of the Android operating system?
