Samsung says "we will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of our products" 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.
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.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
"we will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of our products" Simple!!! All you have to do is to just pay all the compensation to Apple :D

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

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?

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.

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.
