Apple, which has a mounted by worldwide legal battle against Samsung, had managed to procure a two month ban on Samsung’s Android based Galaxy 10.1 tablet device. The device will not hit the market until the patent infringement trial is over.

Samsung had earlier said that the trial will spill over intonext year as it needs more time to collect evidence against Apple. This would mean that Samsung won’t be able to sell the device until the trial is over.
