Galaxy Tab 10.1: Ban on Samsung Tab to be Reconsidered by Court


Lately, a District court is US had issued a ban on Galaxy Tab 10.1 in accordance with a patent dispute case filed by Apple. However as a relief for Samsung, a higher court has asked for reconsideration of the sales ban.

The decision has been warmly welcomed by Samsung as it has arrived days before the launch of its much awaited, second generation Note. Samsung is hopeful that this latest rule by the court will help them to communicate their stand to their customers. Recently there has been a lot of tension going on between Samsung and Apple regarding patent issues.

Previously US District Court Judge Lucy Koh had ruled in favor of Apple, imposing a ban of the sales of Samsung Galaxy 10.1.She said that she could not act as Samsung had already appealed. However the latest case filed by Samsung against this decision at the Federal US Court of Appeals in Washington was ruled in Samsung’s favor. The court has asked Lucy Koh to reconsider her decision as they have found that Samsung has not violated any patent owned by Apple.

Currently Samsung and Apple are locked in patent disputes in 10 countries. Both smartphone manufactures aim at tapping the huge potential of these markets. Samsung had lost in its previous tiff with Apple regarding the copying of critical features in iPad and iPhone and had to pay $1.05 billion in damages. However its breakthrough product Galaxy S3 has been performing really well despite the controversies. This increasing popularity of the product has been disturbing Apple who aims at gaining a monopoly over the global smartphone segment.
