Modified Galaxy S devices on the way to Europe

In the latest twist in the ongoing Apple v Samsung saga, it appears the Korean giant will try to prevent an injunction banning their devices in Europe by releasing modified versions of the affected Galaxy S devices. 

In case you haven't heard, a Dutch court ruled that Samsung had infringed on an Apple patent, and imposed an injunction against the Galaxy S, Galaxy S II and Galaxy Ace smartphones being sold in some European countries.

Samsung were given until Oct. 14 to address the matter, and a spokesman for Samsung has now confirmed that the affected devices have been modified, and will shortly be back on sale in the affected countries.

  • I heard that all they did was change the software so there was no bounce at the end of pages, just the blue glow like in Honeycomb. I actually like the glow better
  • 1. Does this change fix the legal problem, or does it have to be approved through the courts before Samsung can get on with selling them? 2. If this is just a software fix - will there be an OTA update to existing users or are they going to bother with that?
