A California judge ruled Thursday that Samsung can no longer sell its Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the US, based on Apple’s claims that Samsung violated its iPad patents.

In the meantime, the US District Court of the Northern District of California will continue to inspect Apple’s patents and compare them to Samsung’s products, according to the Associated Press

So far, the Tab’s future doesn’t look promising – presiding Judge Lucy Koh said Apple “has established a strong case on the merits,” deeming the iPad and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 “virtually indistinguishable.”
