Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 ban partially lifted in Europe

Last week, Apple determined a German regional court to stop Samsung from selling the new Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android Honeycomb tablet across Europe. Now the same regional court announced that the ban has been partially lifted, and the tablet can be commercialized in European markets except Germany.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the new decision came as a result of the fact that a German court can’t really “ban a company headquartered in South Korea from selling goods outside Germany.” Fair enough, isn’t it?

A new hearing on the case was scheduled for August 25, when Samsung hopes to permanently lift the injunction. Of course, Apple certainly doesn’t want that, as it still claims the Galaxy Tab 10.1 infringes its intellectual property, and copies elements of its second tablet, namely the iPad 2 (launched back in March).

    This tactics by Apple reminds me how Facebook started filtering links
    with Google+ invites from stream… Quite pathetic. No dignity to
    compete for the good of the customers.
