US court date set for ruling on Samsung ban
The Samsung Galaxy S2 4G is one of the models that Apple wants banned.

The US District Court in San Jose, California, has set a date to hear Apple's request to permanently ban sales of eight Samsung mobile phones.

The court hearing is set for 6th December, to decide on a permanent injunction against the Samsung devices, which the court ruled infringed on Apple's patents.

The phones, which are older models, include the Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T model, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile model, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge and Galaxy Prevail.

The court has also set a hearing for 20th September, to decide on a request from Samsung, to overturn a ban on sales of its Galaxy Tab 10.1, which the jury had decided did not infringe Apple's IP.

Apple was awarded $1.05 billion by the court last week after it found that Samsung had copied a number of features of Apple's iPhone range.
