Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales ban lifted in the US

Source: BBC News

A temporary sales ban on Samsung Electronics' Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer in the US has been lifted by a US court.

District Judge Lucy Koh gave a court order rescinding a ban on US sales that was part of a patent dispute with Apple.

The ban was put in place on 26 June.

Separately, Samsung filed a motion on Tuesday against Apple's iPhone 5 saying its patents had been violated.

1. Good for them

People want choices - let the p*ssing contest begin. And cross fingers it means lower prices for consumers as carriers move away from subsidizing devices.

8. Isn't really a hyperbole if its true. Apple desires a monopoly on their products.

They're pretty much turning into the thing they once despised -- Microsoft.

6. Not that it even matters

The tablet, which I own, is almost two years old. It was a ridiculous ban and didn't really mean anything. I'm so sick of this pissing match-- it's just stupid!

9. Yes, I do like it

However, I just got the Nexus 7 because it was very cumbersome to carry around a 10" device and the Nexus 7 is so much more portable. I have to say that the Nexus 7 is perfect for me and the price is right at $200 for the 8gb and $250 for the 16gb.
