Samsung just announced the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and Galaxy Note Thursday at IFA in Berlin. Now there is no sign that the Galaxy Tab 7.7 was ever there. Not only is the device not available in the showroom, but all of the posters for it have been covered up.
Samsung has removed the Galaxy Tab 7.7 from our stand at IFA. We cannot make any further comment as we have not received an official statement from the court.
– Samsung Europe spokesperson Brendon Gore
Brendon Gore goes on to say that this was a choice Samsung made and not something ordered by the court. It appears that Samsung just does not want to take any risks with the new Galaxy Tab and just wanted to show it off at the trade show as quickly as possible.
I hope that all of the attendees were able to experience the 7.7 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 before it vanished.
The Galaxy Tab 7.7 is still going to be sold. However, there is a rumor that the 7.7 will not be available in the United States. I have contacted Samsung about this and hope to get an answer soon!
Update: It appears that there was actually a second injunction granted by the German court preventing the promotion of Samsung tablets in Germany. Sad…
