The Galaxy might be banned in the US as well

US district Judge feels the Galaxy tab might have infringed iPad related patents, which can just lead to banning of the device over US also

The patent war so far has already created a bad scenario for the Samsung Galaxy Tabs in most of the parts of the world, as both Apple and Samsung are involved in this war in multiple countries across the planet.

Till now, the Samsung has already faced a ban over the sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Europe as well as Australia. Apple is trying some similar actions over in the US, which apparently might be going to be favoring Apple according to some recent rumors.

Earlier we reported, about the same case which was up for a hearing at the district court of the Northern District of California, San Jose Division. Now the US District Judge Lucy Koh, also seems to believe that the Galaxy Tab really did infringe iPad related patents. By now it really feels that Samsung might be losing the fight again out here in the US, after having already been forced to delay the item in most of the regions.

However, the lawsuits like these generally lasts for months or even years, since those involved can appeal decisions several times. Even the injunction in Australia is not permanent and the Judge even offered to speed up the next hearing, but Samsung refused saying they need time for to prepare the defence against the case.

So, all this leads to one conclusion that although consumers were ready to try one of these Galaxy Tabs 10.1 after the announcements made by T-Mobile, they seems quite far from the consumers reach. We can even say that they might not be reaching the market by the Holiday Season.
