Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Sales Banned by US Court
A court has banned sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in the US while it decides on the firm’s patent dispute with Apple.
Apple has claimed that Samsung infringed its design patent and copied the look of its popular device, the iPad.
The Samsung tablet is considered by most analysts as the biggest rival to Apple’s iPad.
The ban does not apply to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 II, the tablet’s new edition.
The trial for the case is scheduled to begin in California on 30 July.
Apple will have to post a $2.6m (£1.67m) bond to enforce the injunction, which it applied for in May, to compensate Samsung if the ban subsequently proves to have been unnecessary.
