Samsung to develop Windows tablet after Galaxy 10.1 sales ban upheld [Asian News International]ANIAl Bawaba Ltd.
Washington, July 8 (ANI): Tech giant Samsung has said that it plans to come out with a Windows tablet this fall, after the a court ruling upheld the sales ban on one of it's current tablets, Galaxy 10.1.
Samsung has said it is working on a tablet that will run the Windows RT operating system, part of Microsoft's line of Windows 8 software and is expected to be launched in October.
A federal judge in California placed a preliminary injunction on the sales of the device last week, and on Friday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit denied Samsung's request to be allowed to resume selling the tablet, according to Bloomberg, Los Angeles Times reports.
The block on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 comes as part of a patent infringement case in which Samsung is locked in with Apple.
It's been an up-and-down week for Samsung, which this week also announced that it had posted record-breaking profits for the second quarter but was unable to meet revenue expectations. (ANI)
