Despite Apple’s Best Efforts, US Judge Clears Galaxy S3 For Unhindered June 21st Launch


It was last week we learned of Apple’s efforts to throw a wrench into Samsung’s Galaxy S3 launch plans, filing a preliminary injunction that, if all went according to plan, would see a delayed launch of the Galaxy S3 here in the states. Well, it looks Samsung is off the hook with US District Judge Lucy Koh ruling that the companies would have to wait until July, before the trial could continue, given the judge’s busy calendar. This officially clears the Galaxy S3 for an unhindered June 21st take-off. It’s party time, boys and girls… for now.

    1. you will make the world better….I mean it :) com/site/corpsins/

    2. Finally others are joining in my hatred for Apple! Feels like I’ve been alone in my despise for the past decade. Glad to see ppl coming around! I just wish itd have happened before you dished out the cash for a Mac! Lol

      1. Oh i am one of those Who still love their computers and th iPod. It is the iPhone that i will not bother with because this fiasco apple is creating. So i am willing to be tarred and feathered.

      2. oh I bought it second hand lol payed 700 for a girls 16000 i5 college facebook machine ;) gotta love spring break!

      3. 1,600… derp

    3. I wish I owned something from Apple so that I could dump it, too.

      1. haha yeah it’s just out of hand, I have always preferred macs as computers but this is crazy.

    4. apple needs to stop their childish play b/c i’m pretty sure apple has infringed other companies’ patents. they need to grow up like other companies and join the competition to make better and innovative products i hope someday apple will be sued by other companies just to show them how stupid their decisions were suing Samsung, HTC & etc this is why i will never ever ever ever buy a product from crapple

  2. Good for Samsung, hope it has a successful launch

  3. Sorry, Quentyn…. Android lives on for a little while longer anyways.

    1. LOL! I don’t think Quentyn hates Android… Does he? O_o

      1. His iOS 6 post made it seem like he did.

  4. this is great news, I wonder how much it cost Samsung for the judges busy calender?

  5. Does this mean the Verizon version will launch on the 21st too!?

    1. no 28th… just in time for them to screw us out of grandfathered unlimited data

      1. Yeah, I knew it was just a matter of time. Thats why I left VZW yesterday and went and got the Galaxy Note from AT&T. I live in a great area for AT&T’s 4G, so the usual downside of leaving Verizon wont affect me too much. 3GB of Data is plenty for me, considering I use WiFi 90% of the time. Bye bye VZW!!!

    1. lol, didnt even click it, just downvoted cause it was the cool thing to do ;)

      1. Hey, me too! Lol

  6. Now ATT can ship my preorder!!
    Bring it on!

  7. I’m sure the S3 will be worth the wait, but after the drawn-out delay in the Galaxy Nexus release, I feel fine choosing the Galaxy Note today over the possibility of getting an S3 in 2 weeks. 12 hours into my new contract and I’m still extremely satisfied with my decision!

  8. I am an iPhone user since 2007 and ever since all these lawsuits and stuff, I am seriously considering switching over to Android!

    1. A straight forward comparison with a galaxy nexus or a gakaxy SII or any high end android device will be enough to make you switch. No need to worry about apple tantrum.

    2. You should switch over to the dark side. We have cookies and cake! :D

  9. @ianmma this isn’t the case of you pre order. You will keep your unlimited data.
