In a big patent dispute win for Apple on Tuesday, a judge banned Samsung from selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in the U.S. The injunction will go into effect as soon as Apple posts a $2.6 million bond for damages suffered by Samsung in the event the ruling is later found to have been wrong. Samsung, in response to the ruling, which it plans to appeal, said in a statement: "Apple sought a preliminary injunction of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1, based on a single design patent that addressed just one aspect of the product's overall design."
