Samsung has lost its attempt to overturn a ban on US sales of its flagship Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer, in a fresh blow for the South Korean manufacturer in its patent war with Apple.
A judge in California on Monday refused to lift the ban – which came into force last week – while the court weighs up Apple’s claim that Samsung illegally copied the design of the iPad.A spokeswoman for Samsung on Tuesday said the company would continue to appeal against the injunction.
Apple and Samsung are involved in patent disputes in several countries around the globe, in a row that has moved front and centre in the battle for the increasingly crowded tablet market.
Samsung was ordered on 26 June to halt US sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 – one of the closest competitors to the iPad – until the South Korean firm goes to trial with Apple on 30 July. The US district judge Lucy Koh also hit Samsung with a US sales ban for its top-end Galaxy Nexus smartphone on Friday.
Samsung said in a statement: “Samsung is disappointed with the court’s decision that denied our motion to stay. We believe today’s ruling will ultimately reduce the availability of superior technological features to consumers in the US.
“Regardless, we will continue to pursue a request for an appeal of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 preliminary injunction, which we filed on 26 June to the court of appeals for the federal circuit.”
“The impact on Samsung is limited as shipment volume of Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Nexus are quite small,” Lee Sun-tae, an analyst at NH Investment & Securities, told Reuters.
“Even if Apple wins an injunction request on Galaxy S III, Samsung will have plenty of time to get around it, as it normally takes quite a long time for a court to process such requests.”
Total sales of tablet computers will reach 105m units this year and 143m in 2013, according to the research firm IDC – compared with total PC sales of about 400m, of which more than 60% will be laptops.
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers run Google’s Android software, which is also used by a range of rival manufacturers including Sony and Motorola.
Apple is expected to remain the dominant player in the tablet market for the foreseeable future, with Gartner forecasting that the iPad will account for 61.4% of all sales this year. Android tablets are forecast to account for 31.9% of tablet computer sales this year.

Like itpredecessors, the Casio G’zOne Ravine 2 stands out from the cell phone crowd for its sturdy and ultradurable design. It’s not pretty in the least, but that doesn’t matter when you can take the handset for a swim without giving it a scratch. Similarly, though it doesn’t have a ton of features, call quality is respectable and it offers everything you need for communication. So if you need a device for calling for help while stuck in a sandstorm, the Ravine 2 is a great buy. I just wouldn’t recommend taking photos of that sandstorm with the Ravine 2’s camera. itpredecessors, the Casio G’zOne Ravine 2 stands out from the cell phone crowd for its sturdy and ultradurable design.

Liquipel technology can now be used to prevent your smartphones from water damage.
At CES 2012, Liquipel demoed this revolutionary technology that applies a waterproof coating to devices. Invisible to the naked eye, the undetectable coating protects both the external
and internal components of the device. It however does not interfere with either the look, feel or the performance of the device.
Priced at just $59 (Rs 2950) the coating needs to be applied only once, no later than the second day of receiving the device.
Phonearena reports that, ‘for $10 extra, the coating can be sprayed within 2 hours after your phone is received. For $79, the spray and a transparent super-thin coating called Gadget
Film will be applied directly to the surface which protects your smartphone from scratches.’
The following devices are approved to be Liquipelled:
Apple iPhone 4s
Apple iPhone 4
Apple iPhone 3g/s
HTC Evo 4G
HTC Evo Shift 4G
HTC MyTouch 4G
Motorola Droid X/X2
