It's Samsung's fault that Judge Koh can't lift the ban on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
The impact of Apple's recent win over Samsung on various patent and trade dress charges have still yet to be completely sorted out, including the fact that Samsung is still unable to sell its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, even though that was the one win Samsung had in the case. Samsung lost on almost all counts, except for the design charges levied against its tablets, it did lose on utility patents on tablets, but even with that Judge Koh would have lifted the bad if she could.

Unfortunately, Samsung's own actions have led to the troubles. It seems that because Samsung was quick to appeal the original ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1, that appeals process keeps Judge Koh from being able to lift the ban, even though the jury found that Samsung wasn't infringing on Apple patents with its tablets. According to Koh, "Samsung’s pending appeal of the June 26 Preliminary Injunction deprives the Court of jurisdiction to dissolve the injunction until and unless the Federal Circuit returns jurisdiction to this Court." 

The tablet can still be purchased via T-Mobile or Best Buy, but can't be sold by Samsung. Of course, it may not matter all that much anyway since the Galaxy Note 10.1 has essentially replaced the Tab 10.1 in Samsung's tablet lineup.

Michael, that comment was a little offensive and unprofessional... I'm sure many people check the source of the article first before reading.

This is phonearena.com, where insensitive people and bigots troll. As we say at the office, it's par for the course.

No one in the comments has a sense of humor unless Apple is being mocked.

Don't worry Michael, i'M behind you 110%, even though I might get banned again. I always (well, iTry to) read the article; iOnly lose interest when the iSource is Apple (which is usually the case, especially this past week).

Godspeed

And you shouldn't even comment when you can't even read the mistakes you've made in the article...

Well there was nothing after that part, other than "via ars technica", so a good place to stop.

I don't usually ever thumb down anyone because I feel no matter how much I may disagree with someone, they still have a right to their own opinion.

However, I am taken back by the fact that someone thumb downed Michael for pointing out an obvious architectural reading malfunction.

Why does it matter if the ban on that gets lifted or not? It's been replaced with the Galaxy Note 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

so that samsung and retailers can offload remaining inventory instead of having it sit in some warehouse somewhere.

Recall Samsung attorneys lost the landmark case -- even one their attorneys didn't have the proper license when the trial started. So is ANYONE surprised by this situation.

Get Judge Judy to sort this out and then put Samsung and Apple before her to sort out their differences in a 22 minute episode.

....... I would subscribe to pay TV to watch that episode
