Samsung says "we will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of our products" in the US

Samsung says
Samsung issued a statement today that it is willing to work around the issues Apple says the eight phones included in its injunction request presented in the aftermath of the patent infringement verdict against the Koreans in the US.

These eight devices on various carriers account for most of Samsung's smartphone revenue for the first half of the year, which is why Apple has cherry-picked them as first in line on a list that might goes for 28 devices in total.

Samsung issued a very brief, very contained press release regarding the sales ban request: "We will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of our products in the U.S. market", and that's that. 

What measures might be taken to work around such touchscreen operation stalwarts like double tap to zoom is not clear at this point, but Samsung is actually saying its other options are to file a motion against the injunction, or appeal from here to eternity any negative decision that Judge Koh has to come up with on September 20, when the ban is to be upheld or denied.

Paying is a must, and that will not stop the ban unless SS reach a deal with Apple which is extremely unlikely.

No it's not that simple. Apple wants the Money and they want the products banned. Its not one or the other.

If you recall, Apple did approach Sasmsung to work out a deal. Samsung balked. Sometimes, you have to take the long and complicated road, and spend hundreds of millions in legal just to lose in court.

In the business world, they are starting to coin the term (aka a new buzz word): "They Samsung Way".

Double tap to zoom? Is Apple going after Google, Mapquest and whoever else for double-click-to-zoom on Maps?

So what do we go to - triple tap?

Touch and hold. Instead of coming up with options it will zoom in slowly until you let up and it stops zooming.

or what if they used the front facing camera as the sensor, if you double tapped the air without actually coming in contact with the screen would that do the trick without Apple crying? Or even pinch the air in front of the camera with out once again touching the screen? eh? eh?

It doesn't look like Sammy has too much to worry about - the date for the hearing on the injunction got moved to December, 2012. The court of appeals for the 9th circuit may enjoin any sales ban once they get Sammy's appeal brief, which will happen before the December, 2012 date.

Nothing like a slow roast for Apple. Guess which Sammy handsets will be EOL'd by December, 2012?

The ban of those phones will not help Apple though, but HTC and Motorola and other Android OEMs will be delighted.

Why tap at all? Just use that face recognition technology and create move face closer to the phone to zoon.

Nice idea man. how about wave your hand twice in-front of the sensor to zoom in, three times to zoom out, or something like that.

Too much movements. I rather just use my eyeballs. Double blink to zoom. or move your lips to one side to turn pages.

what about tounge.

remove your tounge once to get zoom.

if you want more zoom keep it moving inside and out.

Press the 2 corners and zoom. Problem solved. Knowing Apple...they patented using 2 fingers to zoom any kind of way.

Samsung can remove "double-tap-to-zoom" for all I care; it's buggy anyway, especially on the Droid Charge. I would be just as happy using a magnifying glass or biFocals.

But, one thing I do know, lack of said feature (s) claimed as "iNfriNged" by Apple will never force me to buy another iPhone as long as I live! I would rather move to China and get a real Android smartphone than to be headlocked into wasting money on another iTurd.

Didn't Samsung have that awesome "hold two fingers then tilt" zoom for the E4GT?

At least that should be the android standard, even at my behest for the said company's infringement practices.

Yes, it's one of the motion gestures on GS3 but it's not too convenient compared to pinch to zoom & double tap to zoom, but it's good.

pinch to zoom (or in my case Goatse zoom) is still neutral, better hope google copyrights that somehow.

Nokias and some hp mobil computers on their track pad have a circular motion zoom in zoom out and it's really useful

My Samsung Monte used a zooming feature I actually liked: you hold your finger on the screen and then you slide it up to zoom or down to unzoom, it's very convenient for one handed operation cause you only need one finger.

What happens when you need to scroll the screen, like on a website?

Two fingers, like how you use the tilt option in Google Maps might be a good substitute though.

Samsung already have tilt the entire phone to zoom or pan.

This really isnt that big a deal. I know for one I didnt choose Android because it could pinch to zoom or double tap to zoom. I rarely even use both.
