Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Australian launch further delayed under Apple assault

Samsung's concessions to the ongoing Apple legal onslaught continue, with news that the company has agreed to put Australian launch plans for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 on ice until September 30.

This movie features at least one scene in which a couple of tablets are used to compute while breakfast is being consumed by their users. What this particular scene is being used for at this very moment is so-called evidence that Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet design does not use the iPad 2 for inspiration, that instead a single screen with little border surrounding it used for computing has been a common design for a "tablet" computer for quite some time.

Samsung secretly filed protective pleading to avoid Apple injunction

Court documents concerning the preliminary sales injunction Apple was granted against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 suggest the Korean company may not have been as blindsided by the court decision as it subsequently claimed.
