Yesterday we heard the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 would be delayed for release in Australia upon resolution of a Federal Court order. Apple claimed that Samsung had infringed 10 patents including look and feel, and touchscreen technology in the iPad. The court has also ordered Samsung to allow Apple access to three samples of the Galaxy Tab.
Samsung has announced the launch the Australian Model of the Galaxy Tablet will go ahead as planned. Turns out the tab in question is not the same model that was covered by the court order, in fact was never intended to be sold in Australia. It’s hard to imagine how the Australian model varies so dramatically that none of the 10 patents are impacted by the variant.
The launch of the Australian Galaxy Tab 10.1 is scheduled for next Thursday, 11th of August.
