If you just returned home with a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in your hands from your latest bout of consumer electronics shopping, thank your lucky stars. A US judge issued a preliminary injunction earlier today to prevent any more sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet Stateside. According to US District Judge Lucy Koh, this ruling granted Apple’s request for said preliminary injunction. This came about after Apple appealed the original decision, and I guess Apple’s legal eagles certainly had a field time ensuring that their employer is not disappointed with the result at all.
Bear in mind that this is just a preliminary injunction, so assuming Samsung ends up as the victor at the end of the case, this particular injunction will no longer be in effect, and Samsung is a free company to sell their Galaxy Tab 10.1s. Good thing Samsung is not reliant on just a single tablet in its approach to this market segment, so chances are they will not be sinking anytime soon.
