iPad versus Tab 10.1 (Credit: AnandTech)

As relayed by Reuters, a judge has blocked Samsung’s request for a lift of the recently placed injunction on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. This ruling follows last week’s ruling in which an injunction was placed on the Android tablet.

Apple¬†posted a $2.6 million bond to put last week’s injunction into action.

While the rejection of a lift on the Tab 10.1 injunction is notable, this likely won’t affect Samsung too much as the company has already released new tablets and a successor to the banned touchscreen multimedia computer.

In addition to this injunction on the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Apple was granted a preliminary injunction on Samsung and Google’s popular Galaxy Nexus smartphone.¬†The ruling on the Nexus came just days after Google announced enhancements to the device such as the addition of the Android 4.1 operating system, Jelly Bean.
