Samsung Continues Selling Galaxy Tab 10.1N in Germany Despite Apple Suits
Samsung scores on its ongoing legal battle with Apple over smartphones and tablets. German court ruled that Samsung can continue to sell the Galaxy Tab 10.1N tablet as well as the Galaxy Nexus smartphone in that countr… at least for now.
After having the Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned in Germany, Samsung introduced the Tab 10.1N with some changes on its outside look in order to get around the court ruling. Apple tried to get a preliminary injunction against that tablet too.
The latest ruling may not be the end of the matter. But a German judge has decided that Apple’s argument that Samsung’s products will violate one if its patents on touchscreen technology may not hold much water, since the patent could be overturned. Thanks to Samsung’s efforts to show that the technology was already available before Apple was granted that patent.
Nevertheless, despite Samsung’s victory, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is still banned in Germany, while the Galaxy Tab 10.0N will continue to be sold.
