Apple ban of Galaxy Tab made it a Household Name says AU Samsung Chief

Apple ban of Galaxy Tab made it a Household Name says AU Samsung Chief

This week as the Samsung 10.1-inch tablet reaches stores after having been banned for weeks in an Apple injunction to do away with sales altogether, Samsung Australia mobile chief Tyler McGee noted that far from destroying sales, Apple has instead made their Android-based slate a "household name." A Sydney court lifted the Galaxy Tab sales ban after an appeal by Apple was denied, this ending a two-month out of store stint while the law made its decision on whether or not it thought Samsung infringed on Apple's iPad product. What McGee is saying now, though he wont reveal any numbers thus far, is that the Apple case and the media coverage it generated will without a doubt provide a boost in sales once they've got their product back in stores.

Samsung readies anti-Apple “hard-line stance” and $200m legal fund

Samsung may have been reasonably magnanimous in its defeat of Apple's US preliminary injunction attempts, but the Korean company's execs haven't lost their fighting spirit even if it's generally only wheeled out when off the record. "If we win in Paris as well, that’s truly a big blow to Apple ... We are ready to aggressively sell the Tabs" a Samsung exec told the Korea Times on condition on anonymity, while CEO Choi Gee-sung has confirmed a $200m legal fund has been put aside to field Apple's courtroom attacks in 2012.

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

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.

Apple has tablet “monopoly” says judge as Samsung appeals ban

Samsung has accused an Australian judge of "fundamental errors" and of misunderstanding the law, as the company protests its recent legal failures against Apple. Challenging the Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales ban awarded last month in the appeals court this week, Samsung described the original ruling as being "grossly unjust" SMH reports, and arguing that Justice Bennett "misunderstood and misapplied the basic requirements" around deciding whether Apple's patents were in fact valid.

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. Now the new variant has gone on sale.
