Victory of recent cut of Apple on United States, which prohibits the sale of Samsung Galaxy 10.1 temporarily in the country, is rather a sign of concern and superiority.

Apple was struggling to be the order of the Court on claims was "slavishly copied" from your iPad. The main concerns surrounding the design and feel of the Galaxy tablet. Since a patent may allow an owner to exclude others from the market, Apple sought a ban in the form of a preliminary injunction.

But why is Apple so furiously struggling to maintain the status quo? Well, according to the DisplaySearch research firm, the market of all the world tablet is estimated will reach $78,70 billion this year, up from $44,90 billion in 2011. Apple's struggle for dominance is a struggle of billions of dollars.

Initially, the judge hearing the case wanted to impose the temporary ban for reasons that didn't care if Samsung infringed the design patent because it was likely to be invalid, claiming that it was a clear design based on previous s Apple tabletpatent. This is why he refused to grant Apple a warrant of December 2011. The last ban was only granted after an appeal of Apple.

And one can see the concern of the judge in this matter. If you look at previous similar products models (the version of the Fidler 1194 Tablet and the 2003 version of the Hewlett-Packard Compaq TC1000 tablet), the iPad is a version of singles designs tested and tired.

Samsung has appealed against the order, but has almost no chance of winning because the courts of appeals are very reluctant to alter a temporary order. The company could also provide for an emergency stay but that probably wouldn't as well.

Although this is a major blow for Samsung in United States, the prohibition applies only in sales in that market. Samsung is still free to sell its 10.1 Galaxy in all markets. The publicity surrounding the interdiction of U.S. sales certainly will not harm the global sales of Samsung.

This is also only an additional fee to the ongoing battle between the two global giants. Apple tried a similar tactic to stop the release of the smartphone Galaxy yeah, that has been able to do in United States. So Apple is losing ground in this market and while Tim Cook well did initially when took over from Steve Jobs, this is a sign that he is now struggling to fill the void?

And there are warning signs that can begin to lose ground in the tablet market as well. In his recent Conference I/O, the world largest search company Google world largest online announced the launch of its Nexus Tablet which, together with the upcoming Microsoft tablet offering, challenge to Apple for the supremacy in this market.
