After a full bench of the Federal Court overturned the injunction halting sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 this afternoon, we reached out to Samsung to find out what this meant for them, they advised :
Samsung Electronics Australia is pleased with today’s unanimous decision by the Federal Court to lift the preliminary injunction on sales of the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1. We believe the ruling clearly affirms that Apple’s legal claims lack merit.
We will make an announcement regarding the market availability of the GALAXY Tab 10.1 in Australia shortly.
There has been no word from Optus or Vodafone who were rumoured to be looking at carrying the 10.1 before the legal proceedings began, they may choose to wait for the case to be heard in full before deciding to move forward but hopefully we`ll see some bundling deals once Samsung makes their announcement on market availability.
In the meantime, Mobicity, Kogan, Millennius and DMavo have resumed sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 on their websites if you`re looking to import one right now.
