As a result, NT-K tablet was banned. Quoted from DigitalTrends, Saturday (11/5/2011), tablet shipments are made in China are prohibited. NT-K tablets even blacklisted for being pirated products.

 NT-K filed an appeal which was ultimately accepted. NT-K is not proven to violate the law. NT-K filed back because their income fell after their tablet was banned. They want compensation from Apple.

"We think Apple is trying to block as much as possible tablets for get into the market. We are a small company and it seems unfair for Apple to use a company's dominant influence," complained David Pedro Pelaez, founders of NT-K.
