Galaxy Tab 10.1N | Samsung
A ruling from the Dusseldorf Higher Regional Court in Germany clears the way for the Korean maker’s redesigned Galaxy Tab 10.1N, but extended a ban on the smaller Galaxy Tab 7.7 to the entire EU.
A quick tour through the halls of Mobile World Congress reveals that Android OEMs are quickly learning to design around some of Apple's iPhone-related patents, and coming up with some pretty innovative ideas in the process.
Reuters is reporting that Samsung has added an extra four complaints to its patent dispute with Apple in Germany relating to WCDMA standards.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1N is the offspring of the unholy patent war that has been raging between Apple and Samsung through most of this year. Apple's belief that Samsung's products are copying its designs found support in Germany, where a court injunction forbid the sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Samsung's response has been to carefully redesign its Android tablet just enough to appease the German judiciary. Has it succeeded?
The Australian sales ban on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be extended by one more week so the Australian High Court can hear Apple's request to appeal the court decision it lost just a few days ago.
In a unanimous decision, the Australian Federal Court has just overturned Apple's patent-related injunction on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which would mean Samsung's tablet can go back on sale in that country. Apple's asked for an appeal.
Apple thinks Samsung's revised Galaxy Tab 10.1N still infringes European iPad design registration, asks for German ban
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.
We first learned about the Galaxy Tab 10.1N last week as Samsung's workaround to sell a 10.1-inch Android device in Germany during some legal disputes in the country with Apple.
