Despite Apple suit, Galaxy S III U.S. launch to go ahead: Samsung

Telecom Lead America:  Smartphone major Samsung
Electronics said the latest version of its flagship smartphone Galaxy S will go
on sale in the U.S. market as planned, despite a sales injunction request filed
by Apple to a U.S. court.

In an official statement, the company said that it believes Apples
request is without merit.  The company will vigorously oppose the request.

 ‘We would also like to assure consumers that the U.S.
launch and sales of the GALAXY S III will proceed as planned.’ U.S. sales of
the third generation Galaxy S model, which hit store shelves in some 28
countries last week, have been widely expected to start later this month,” the
statement added.

The third generation smartphone is all set to outshine its
own predecessor, which helped the company to surpass its arch rival Apple in
terms of smartphone shipments globally. It is expected that the new smartphone
could top its predecessor, the Galaxy SII’s 20 million sales worldwide.
