This is out of control!
With the continued and growing hostilities between Apple and Samsung, there’s a new injunction in place blocking Galaxy Tab sales in Germany which forced Samsung to remove it’s new Galaxy Tab 7.7 from their display stand at IFA.
The complaint by Apple prevented Sales or Marketing of the product similar to the August injunction filed by Apple preventing the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 throughout Europe and the woes of the 10.1 in Australia (release delayed until the end of September).
Samsung released a statement saying that “Samsung respects the court’s decision” and “will pursue all available options, including legal action, to defend its intellectual property rights”. As a consumer who is quite excited about the future of Android tablets, I’m hopeful that the hostilities are resolved in court once and for all soon.
As Buzz mentioned in a previous post: The real winner out of the Samsung vs. Apple tablet war here in Australia: Motorola and in the short term at least, it looks as though they’re going to keep on winning.
