Although Apple didn’t able to block the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone US launch, but US district court Judge Lucy Koh yesterday agreed to tentatively stop sales of the South-Korean giant’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in the US. “Although Samsung has a right to compete, it does not have a right to compete unfairly, by flooding the market with infringing products,” Koh wrote on Tuesday.
Apple has to post a tiny $2.6 million bond so as in order to compensate Samsung for the loss, if it somehow able to prove that Apple’s D’889 design patent is invalid. If going by the fact here the Galaxy Tab 10.1 might be still found on sale on some outlets, but over the top, the world moved with the Galaxy Tab 2, which is already in the market.
Update: The company late yesterday posted a $2.6 million bond to inch closer to stopping the Galaxy Tab 10.1 from being offered for sale.
