Apple lawsuit stops Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Australian sales stopped following Apple lawsuit

Apple has won a legal battle with Samsung that will see the Samsung Galaxy S II manufacturer unable to sell the latest version of its Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Australia.

The latest twist in a longstanding legal dispute comes just days ahead of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 UK release date which is set for this Thursday, August 4th.

Deemed to have infringed on a number of Apple patents including mimicking the ‘look and feel’ of Apple’s iPad 2 as well as adopting the same touchscreen technology, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been hit by an Australian injunction with Apple looking to prevent Samsung selling the device in a number of other regions.

Official unveiled at Mobile World Congress back in February, the Samsung Galaxy S II was given a complete design overhaul in the wake of the iPad 2 arrival dropping millimetres from its form factor and losing its 8-megapixel in favour of a slimmer lower-res model.

Can the Samsung Galaxy S II challenge the Apple iPad 2 when it launches in the UK this week? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
