    I want a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and I can wait a bit. I was going to ask my wife to get me one for Christmas (I never have any ideas when she asks what I might like -- a new Ferrari being far, far out of the question). So I am wondering will these things still be available in the US in December. I believe there is a US court date October 13 where Apple will seek a temporary (?) injunction, banning sales of this device in the US. From what I've read online they've already been successful, at least for now, in Germany. I am curious what people think about the likelihood that Samsung will be enjoined from selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the US in the coming weeks.

    It's doubtful they'll be granted an injunction here.

    Any rationale for that?

    Yeah. Our courts are going to require more than a drawing of an outline of a generic tablet to prove any type of infringement.

    Samsung also release the latest 8.9" tab recently, so I don't think there would be a ban in coming days. Even there would be one, it need time to implement.

    Hoping for the best obviously. I am no attorney but I do believe that when injunctive relief is sought it would be immediate if granted.
