Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned from any more sales in the U.S.

By Aldo Panessidi

We’ll, it looks like there just might be some substance to the patent infringement mudslinging that has been going on, at least in this one instance of the Apple vs. Samsung tablet battle.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned from any more sales in the U.S.

This week, U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh banned the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android tablet from sales in the U.S. In Koh’s ruling, she stated, ”Although Samsung has a right to compete, it does not have a right to compete unfairly, by flooding the market with infringing products.”

This ban is a victory for Apple in the U.S. where it has kept up a constant stream of patent lawsuits against its competition, but it’s probably not the huge one that Apple would like. The ban only affects the Galaxy Tab 10.1, a tablet that was introduced more than a year ago, and Samsung is almost ready with its replacement – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.

U.S.-based retailers will be allowed to sell their remaining Galaxy Tab 10.1 inventories, and the new Galaxy Tab version is not affected by the ruling.
