Apple's not happy with the revised Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N that was just released in Germany in order to work around the European design registration on the iPad, and it's asked the German court to ban that model as well.

Apple's apparently not happy with the revised Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N that was just released in Germany in order to work around the European design registration on the iPad — Cupertino's asked the German court to ban the 10.1N as well. It's not surprising that Apple challenged the workaround, but we'll see how far this request goes; unlike the original Galaxy Tab 10.1, the 10.1N features a revised frame that wraps around to the front of the display, which is fairly different than the edge-to-edge glass featured in Apple's design registration. The initial hearing is scheduled for December 22nd, so we'll know soon enough.
