Apple has managed to file an injunction against Samsung that will effectively block the Galaxy Tab 10.1 from launching in Australia until it receives permission from court. Samsung also agreed to stop advertising the tablet in Australia too until this is sorted out. Apple claims that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 violates 10 patents.
“Although Apple’s claims in Australia are based on the U.S. version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung says that the Australian version will be different. Samsung will provide Apple with samples of the Australian version at least seven days before distributing the tablet to market, according to Businessweek.”
So Samsung has made a different version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that is going to launch in Australia? It seems that way. It is unknown how much it will have to change in order to be approved.
At least Australians already have access to the Galaxy Tab 10.1v on Vodafone.
