Apple loses Dutch Samsung tablet ban bid

Apple's bid to have sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 blocked in the Netherlands has failed today, with a Dutch appeals court dismissing Apple's claims of IP infringement by the Android tablet. The ruling - released in Dutch - found that while Apple's tablet design patent 000181607 is still valid, prior art including HP Compaq's tc1000 and the 1994 Knight Ridder concept meant the Cupertino company's design rights are very narrow.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0N Plus revealed

There's a brand new Galaxy Tab in town, this one created in Germany with a new form factor that does a bit of sidestepping like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N did late last year. Regardless of this, it does have the long awaited (by me) forward-facing speaker upgrade, this being the biggest change between it and its 7.0 non-N edition. Inside you'll be getting Android 3.2 Honeycomb right out of the box with Ice Cream Sandwich update in the pipeline.

Apple’s “clearly wrong” Aussie Samsung tablet ban overturned

Apple's sales injunction against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia has been overthrown, with an appeals court dismissing the original block as "clearly wrong" and allowing the Android slate to go on sale this Friday. The Cupertino company secured a short stay until the end of the week so that it could ready an appeal of its own, but was told by the Sydney court that if it wanted to extend the tablet ban - handed down in October when Apple convinced a judge that Samsung had "slavishly copied" its iPad design - it would need to convince the High Court.

Samsung's tablet workaround in Germany has made it into stores and into reviewers' hands, with the Galaxy Tab 10.1N bearing a new bezel design to bypass Apple's injunction. German would-be tableteers hoping for a slice of Samsung's original Galaxy Tab 10.1 had been frustrated, after Apple managed to secure a preliminary sales injunction based on claimed design similarities between it and the iPad.

Nexus 10 vs iPad 4th Gen

It would appear that amongst the software and hardware releases Google has detailed this week is their first giant iPad competitor in the Google Nexus 10. At first glance the differences might not be abundant to an everyday average user other than the obvious Android vs iOS and feel of each device. As it turns out though, these two tablets, for the first time, create a battle between the iPad and an Android-toting tablet made not just by a major manufacturer, but Google as well.
