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.
