大家也许还记得，法院裁决Galaxy S II手机侵犯苹果若干专利。Galaxy S III手机是苹果提交专利诉讼后才发布的，并不在法院判决范围内。
Two reports this week suggest that Apple's (AAPL) Aug. 24 patent suit victory is already being felt in the market.
From MarketWatch's Quentin Fottrell: "[Reseller] Gazelle.com reports a 50% increase in Samsung smartphones over the past three days, which has led to a 10% drop in prices for those devices. 'Consumers seem to be jumping ship,' says Anthony Scarsella, chief gadget officer at Gazelle.com. 'We expect this trend to continue, especially with this latest verdict.'"
From Global Equities' Trip Chowdhry, who surveyed 3 Costco Stores, 5 AT&T Stores, 5 Sprint Stores and 3 Verizon Stores: "Following Apple and Samsung August 24th verdict, customers rushed to buy Samsung Galaxy S III this weekend, with some stores reporting stock outs."
The jury, you may recall, found the Galaxy S II had infringed several Apple patents. The Galaxy S III, which was released after Apple had already filed its suit, was not covered by the verdict.
It's also possible that customers just like the S III's larger screen.
