Sam sung as the Judge dissolved 10.1 tabs in the galaxy.

Good, it was stupid.

Apple had to put up a bond to get the injunction instated in the first place? Interesting. I guess this means when all of the legal laundry is dry, they'll have to pay Samsung for the loss of revenue over the months that they couldn't sell their product.

In other news, Samsung just updated my GTab 7+ to ICS. Yay!

Apple.

Litigating our way to market share since 2006.

You would think, but it won't happen

I don't get how she has the power to issue a ban based on apparently nothing, but can't rescind it even after the agreed to conditions for rescinding it are met.

I have a Samsung galaxy tab 10.1. The first generation.

It's pretty awesome.

I'm reading a book by Richard Feynman and re-reading the silmarillion on it right now.

Also use it to watch porn & other important stuff.

iPad equals easy to use if you don't mind paying for everything


Samsung equals stolen content, but need to be a little more tech savy.

/if your tech savy u can get the stolen content on an iPad anyway

Had ICS on mine for a few months. Love it.

up through august, samsung had sold a total of 1.4 million galaxy tabs. somehow i don't think a quarter of no sales really helped apple's market share that much.

1. She can issue a temporary injunction pre-trial, based on her belief that Apple was likely to prevail at trial on the patent infringement claims.
2. She couldn't rescind the temporary injunction post-trial after the jury found that the Tab didn't infringe, because Samsung had already filed an appeal. Only one court can have jurisdiction at a time. The Federal Circuit had to send an order giving her jurisdiction again so that she could rescind the injunction. Think of it like Lord of the Flies - they had to give her the conch.

That's reality, whereas this:

... is just slander.

i don't have one of those phones but apple having a monopoly on ipad-like devices is wrong. good for samsung.

i should point out, that's total samsung galaxy tab sales. the 10.1 only sold 712k.

Is anyone still buying that thing? I've been eyeing a Samsung Galaxy Note tablet, which will most likely kill off the Tab.

I have a Galaxy Tab 10.1, first generation as well...

It's awesome...does most everything I need it to from Netflix, HBOGO, Youtube, porn, banking, etc.

Bought a bluetooth speaker by Emerson, makes the sound that much nicer...
And it's all tiny and portable.
Love it!

Dunno why I'd need a Note though...why would I want to go back to writing? Even if it's on a Tab? Who the hell wants to figure out what handwriting, especially messy handwriting, means again?
I'm sure it does other neat things, but overall...I don't see my 10.1 being obsolete yet.

Eh, it's like four OS versions behind by now anyway.

That makes sense, but I still think it's problematic that something can be kept from the market based on a personal belief.

Not sure what you mean. That's like saying it's problematic that someone can be held without bail based on a personal belief... I mean, sure, if it were your belief or my belief, but it's a judge's belief, and it's a conclusion based on a prima facie case supported by evidence, and subject to interlocutory appeal to a higher court.
And here, Samsung did appeal the temporary injunction, and the Federal Circuit said, "yeah, you guys may be infringing. Wait until after the trial."

I am so glad I can use my SGT in public now without being labelled a lawless scoundrel.

It's a great machine, and I love Google Play deals (last week, 5 days of pretty damn good apps for $0.25 each).

/and porn and other important stuff.

I have nearly a dozen tablet devices either personally or because of my job. For my money, the best of them is the Galaxy Tab 8.9", which weighs about the same as an original Kindle Fire but has the same screen resolution as 10" Android tablets. I'm really hopeful that there's a second generation product, because I'd like to see something with specs similar to a Fire HD only without Amazon's retarded UI on it.

Yeah, I think 7" is about as small a window I want to have to look at things through. The Note is cool, but it seems like it would be a pain to use. The ICS upgrade on my Tab integrated voice recognition so well, that I'm now dictating the first drafts of my papers to my Tab instead of typing them on my laptop. Screw that stylus nonsense.


mctwin2kman: Had ICS on mine for a few months. Love it.


I was waiting for the OEM version, because I'm highly reliant on my Tab for school. I read all of my textbooks on it, take notes for some of my classes on it, it's my phone, GPS, scheduler, alarm clock, calculator, word processor, and the main way I talk to my wife overseas (Skype and GV). I wasn't about to go messing with rooting and hacked ROMs because if I brick my device, I'm screwed. My only sad is that Samsung disabled Face Unlock in this version, and even though it's totally useless for security, I really wanted to play with it.
