In IFA Exposition German, Samsung Tablet is planning to public its 7.7 inch Tab to German and wide European consumers, but it meet Apple upheld an injunction to German court and finally have to withdraw Galaxy Tab from IFA Exposition.
A German court upheld an injunction sought by Apple barring Samsung from selling its Galaxy 10.1 tablets in Germany, marking a victory for the U.S. company in its battle across the globe with its South Korean rival.
However retailers such as German consumer electronics chain Media Markt will still be able to sell the device, if they are getting rid of existing stock or obtaining new supplies from the South Korean group’s parent Samsung International.
Giving the ruling, Judge Johanna Brueckner-Hoffmann said in court in Duesseldorf the overall impression of the tablet was too similar to the design of Apple’s iPad.
“It (the tablet) is distinguished by its smooth, simple areas,” Brueckner-Hoffmann said.
The real reason may be that: Samsung, which can object to the decision, has been locked in a battle with Apple over smartphone and tablet patents since April. The Galaxy devices are seen as among the biggest challengers to Apple’s mobile products, which have achieved runaway success.
But luckily, in other countries among Europe and Australia and Asia, Samsung Tablet is still allowed to sell.
