Reuters reports that Apple may seek a legal order over the launch of Samsung Galaxy S III in the United States later this month. Samsung has already booked over 9 million preorders of the Galaxy S III, which is set to be sold by carriers in the United States on June 21. The Cupertino-based giant filed papers this week seeking to make a ban happening.
Apple attorney Josh Krevitt at hearing in San Jose, California federal court said the company could file for a temporary restraining order against Samsung. “Once sales are made, the harm is irreparable.” While US District Judge Lucy Koh said, “I cannot be an Apple v. Samsung judge.”
While T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon and US Cellular all set to release Samsung Galaxy S III, AT&T also started its pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III, with the 16GB model priced at $199.99 on a two-year contract.
