Samsung is celebrating its Australian sales ban being lifted, with a Sun Herald advertisement dubbing the Galaxy Tab 10.1 "the tablet Apple tried to stop."

After getting the Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales ban in Australia lifted last week, Samsung has been celebrating its victory in the local newspapers. First, it told the Sydney Morning Herald that the lawsuit actually helped the Galaxy Tab become a "household name," and now it's advertising it as "the tablet Apple tried to stop" in the Sun Herald. We suppose it's difficult to argue that point, and after all, they do say that no publicity is bad publicity. You'd think that getting sued by a corporate monolith the size of Apple would be firmly in the "bad" column when rounding up your year, but Samsung seems to be making the most of it.
