Samsung is prepared for the worst – says it will modify phones to avoid Apple ban

Samsung (005930) on Tuesday confirmed that it is willing to modify its smartphones if it cannot successfully fight Apple’s (AAPL) request to have them banned in the United States. After managing a big win in its trial against Samsung, Apple made an initial request with the U.S. District Court in San Jose, California to ban eight smartphones including the Galaxy S II. Samsung plans to fight the request but if the company is unsuccessful, it confirmed that it is willing to modify the devices in order to avoid sales bans.

“We will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of our products in the U.S. market,” a Samsung spokesperson told The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, further noting that Samsung would file to block the injunction, appeal any injunction granted by the judge, and then modify devices should the company’s appeal fail.

Apple is expected to seek bans on additional Samsung smartphones in the coming weeks — in all, 21 Samsung devices were found to infringe on Apple’s protected technology and design patents.
