Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 ban will not be lifted for now

Samsung's request is rejected in the US
Samsung has failed to get an Apple-induced temporary ban on its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet lifted.
Samsung is set to launch its appeal on July 30, but the South Korean firm has acted quickly, as it asked for the ban to be suspended until the on-going legal battle between itself and Apple was over.
No means no
Unfortunately for Samsung, though, its request was shot down by US District Judge Lucy Koh, and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is staying off the shelves in the US for the time being.
The ban only applies to the Galaxy Tab 10.1, and not the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, which has undergone some styling changes from the original tablet to protect itself from Apple's lawyers.
