A U.S. District Judge has halted U.S. sales against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1, approving Apple's request for a preliminary injunction in the U.S. against the device's sale based on Apple's claim it infringles on an iPad-related patent. As Mashable notes, "this ruling only affects Samsung's older 10-inch tablet, the Galaxy Tab 10.1. It does not affect the updated Tab 10.1 II, which was unveiled in May 2012."
Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 launch campaign a year ago took a swipe at the iPad for shunning Flash (see below). According to IDC figures, the iPad had a 54.7% market share in Q4 2011 vs. Samsung's 5.8% share for its tablet range.
