Judge bars sales of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in US

by Chris Foresman - June 27 2012, 11:46am AST

A federal judge ordered a preliminary injunction late Tuesday against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 for violating a design patent for Apple's iPad. The injunction will go into effect immediately after Apple posts a $2.6 million bond to the court, at which point Samsung is barred from continued sales of the device in the US.

Apple had filed for a preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Tab in July 2011, after suing Samsung in April for "slavishly" copying its designs for the iPhone and iPad to make its competing Galaxy S smartphones and Galaxy Tab tablets.

Judge Lucy Koh previously determined that the Galaxy Tab did in fact infringe one of Apple's registered design patents, noting that "Samsung appears to have created a design that is likely to deceive an ordinary observer." During the trial, even Samsung's own lawyer couldn't tell the iPad and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 apart at a distance of about 10 feet from the bench.

1. That runs on Android, right?

And did Apple ever resolve that Flash player thing?

4. I have a Viewsonic G tablet I bought a year ago

Looks like a 10 inch tablet like all the other ones.
Is Apple going to sue people that make monitors and computer cases too? After all, they have similar shapes to Apple products.
