Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1, one of the most popular 10-inch iPad alternatives, has been banned from sale in the U.S. after a judge granted and later upheld an injunction against the device filed by Apple. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 will not be able to go on sale until a patent infringement case between Apple and Samsung has been resolved. The trial is not set to get underway until July 30.
U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh granted the injuction last weekend, and Samsung immediately filed an appeal in response. On Monday, the appeal was denied. Now, retailers across the country are obligated to pull their stock of the tablet.
Apple has also attempted to have the Galaxy Nexus phone banned for similar patent infringement. Judge Koh also granted that ban, although an appeal from Samsung is still pending.
