Re-designed Samsung Tablet 10.1 to Get into Sales this Holiday Season

An Australian Court favored Apple’s request for sales ban against Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1. Apple allegedly claimed that Samsung copied the iPads design, from the interface itself up to the packaging and appearance. Samsung, on the other hand, defended that Apple has no valid claim and that the design was made in relation to its functional properties.

The Australian Court extended the sales ban against Samsung’s Galaxy Tab until December 9. Meanwhile, Samsung re-designed the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and developed the new Galaxy Tab 10.1n to get away with the ban. The main obvious change in the design is the extended metal band at the front screen. The modified version of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was released in Germany and is being continuously sold in the market.

Apple is more determined and convinced that Samsung Galaxy Tab has copied its iPad. The company is also after the redesigned Galaxy Tab 10.1n, and they opt to also impose a sales ban against Galaxy Tab 10.1n in Germany.

The extended sales ban ruled by the Australian Court was extended to give more time for Apple to give supporting facts why Galaxy Tab 10.1 should not be put on sale. Samsung still claims that they did not copy Apple’s iPad design and that they wish for the ban to be cancelled to give way to their product this coming holiday season.
