Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Banned from Sale in US – A Huge Victory for Apple

District judges in the US have upheld Apple’s request that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 be banned from sale in the US, representing an enormous victory in the ongoing and relentless patent war between the two technology powerhouses.

Considered by many industry experts and consumers alike to be the closets contenders for the iPad in terms of power and overall user-experience, Samsung’s silver-medal tablet PCs could face a disastrous future should the ban prove lengthy.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Banned from Sale in US – A Huge Victory for Apple

With Google and Microsoft gearing up for their own flagship tablet launches in the very near future, this is no time for Samsung’s premier lineup to disappear from the shelves entirely.

Apple’s bid to have the Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned from sales was previously denied, along with several others encompassing a range of Samsung Smartphones. However, judges agree to reconsider the appeal from Apple and have since ruled that the Galaxy Tab does indeed infringe upon Apple’s patents.

The war between the two has been raging since late 2010 and appears no closer to an outright resolution today. While Apple has always maintained that its intentions are only to protect what it rightly owns, others are accusing the Cupertino giant of systematically trying to extend its monopoly by wiping out its rivals.

Samsung is expected to appeal against the injunction immediately, therefore the case is likely to continue for some time to come.
