Shortly after Samsung announced Galaxy SIII availability in the U.S., Apple filed to amend an injunction of theirs against the Korean phone maker. They were hoping to stop the launch of the device which most carriers were expecting to release on June 21. Judge Lucy Koh, who is overseeing the case that Apple was hoping to add the Galaxy SIII to, decided that this move would be too much and essentially told them they would have to wait. Apparently her calendar was busy enough, and trying to get this block done by June 21 would be too much for her to handle.
While this doesn’t cancel out the trial over patents that is set to take place in July, this does at least assure of a smooth launch for the device here in the States. +1 to that.
