US Court Bans Sale of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

A US court has banned the sale of the Samsung Galaxy Tablet – version 10.1.

This is after Apple appealed for an injunction against Samsung for copying their patents.

Samsung is thought to be Apple’s primary rival in the tablet market, although Microsoft is seen to be attempting to gain a market share with the new ‘Surface’ tablet due to be released soon.

Originally the injunction against Samsung was rejected by a Californian judge, but since the Federal Court of Appeals ruled that it must be looked into again, the original judge changed his mind.

The hearing is set to proceed on the 30th of July.
