No Galaxy Tab 10.1 for Germany. Ever. (Update)

The German court made a final decision today to ban the Galaxy Tab 10.1 permanently. Sorry German folks but the court rules in defense of Apple claiming that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was too similar to the design of the iPad 2. The doctored pictures did not seem to change the court’s mind.

I am not sure what the fate of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will be or what this means for the rest of Europe. All I know is that I am very disappointed.

Update: This may have been premature, but it does not look good for the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

European ban on Galaxy Tab 10.1 extended

Samsung had a chance to appeal to the German court on Thursday, but alas the injunction shall stay in affect until a final decision is made on September 9th. This is two days after Samsung’s IFA event where they will likely announce a new Galaxy Tab 7.7.

The court claims that there are “overarching similarities” between the two tablets. We can only hope that the ban will get lifted.

Second gen Galaxy Tab 7 will have a 7.7 inch screen

A leaked image was found from Samsung Mobile Unpacked was found earlier showing an image with the names of three unannounced products: Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Wave 3, and Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7. These products will be revealed at IFA September 1st, 2011 in Berlin. We were already expecting a second generation Galaxy Tab 7, but it now looks like it will be known as the Galaxy Tab 7.7. We can assume that it will have a 7.7 inch screen because of its name. We do not know anything about the specs, but it is safe to say that it will feature at least dual-core processor running Honeycomb 3.2 with TouchWiz UX.

The Galaxy Note could be a note taking device to replace the vaporware that Note Slate promised, but that is complete speculation.
