galaxy tab banned in US


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.

The Samsung Transparent Smart Window makes sci-fi movies a reality

Imagine a world of see-through monitors, windows that are interactive, and car windscreens that relay all

the information on the screen rather than the dashboard beneath it.

Now imagine that, rather than being the stuff of science fiction movies and pipe dreams, the technology

that will allow this to become a possibility is going into production in just 20 days.

At CES in Las Vegas Samsung is demoing a new touchscreen display technology that is see-through.

Dubbed the Samsung Transparent Smart Window, the transparent touchscreen LCD tech can fit a

window any size up to 46 inches and deliver a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels allowing full interaction at

the same time.
CES 2012: Heads-up displays inbound

There is no word on price or where we will see this next, but the possibilities are endless thanks to our

love of glass.
One such possibility as we overheard during our demo at CES is in submersibles where you want to

move the instrumentation out of the way of a glass viewing area. That’s really niche, but imagine car

designers being able to remove the dashboard of your car altogether, or Minority Report style computers

that are just sheets of glass rather than the big bulky monitors that you have in your office at the moment.

To show what’s possible beyond the window, Samsung was also showing off the technology with a smaller

monitor. The same screen technology can be used to create smaller screens with higher resolutions. In

this example it measured 22 inches and offered a higher resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels.

And if you are worried that others will be able to see what you are doing from behind the screen. Don’t.

Samsung says that the technology comes with a privacy screen that works like a one-way mirror.
According to Samsung, the future looks see-through
