The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was recently served a preliminary injunction in the US, thanks to Judge Lucy Koh.
As we heard a few days ago, there was potential for a stay pending Samsung’s appeal, but it’s been emphatically denied, presumably with a big swing of the gavel.
For now, US shelves will remain firmly Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 free. Not a huuuge deal, given the age of the tablet.
A more pressing concern will be the pre-trial injunction served against the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which recently received a cheeky profile boost as the Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) flagship.
However, a Samsung spokesperson mourned: "Samsung is disappointed with the court's decision that denied our motion to stay. We believe today's ruling will ultimately reduce the availability of superior technological features to consumers in the United States.”
Meanwhile, Apple rattled off the same old speech. Yeah, you probably know it off by heart now. Say it with me: "This kind of blatant copying is wrong and, as we've said many times before, we need to protect Apple's intellectual property when companies steal our ideas.”
And the patent wars roll on…
