Apple Sends Letters To Retailers Requesting Them To Stop Selling Galaxy Tab And Galaxy Nexus

After the ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Nexus, Apple apparently sent out letters to retailers requesting that they stop selling all Galaxy Tabs and Nexuses from their inventory. The letter stated that the ban “applies not only to the named Samsung entities, but also to anyone ‘acting in concert’ with them” and that retailers should “comply with the order by ceasing immediately to engage in any of the specified acts (e.g., importing, offering to sell, or selling within the United States) in connection with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer.”

Nice, Apple. Classy. However, the Galaxy Nexus is no longer banned, so retailers are free to sell it. Also, many retailers, including Sams Club, refuse to comply and are continuing to sell off their current inventory. Samsung chimed in, saying that they feel retailers have every right to sell off their remaining stock of Tabs. They also (rightfully) called Apple’s actions “menacing.” There is no better word to describe it, when Apple actually goes out of their way to try to get every retailer to stop selling Tabs and Nexuses. Oh Apple, you just won’t stop. What will we do with you?
