Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1 European Launched Delayed due to Apple Lawsuit

Apple successfully blocked the release of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia last week. Now a second Apple victory will prevent Samsung from selling the Tab 10.1 in Europe. Galaxy Tab 10.1 will sell freely in the Netherlands for now. But the reasons for why the Netherlands are excluded from the injunction are not clear.

This is a preliminary injunction, which will last until the German court reaches a decision. Galaxy Tab 10.1 units that have already been shipped to stores will sell normally but there won't be resupplies until this is finished. Samsung may also have to pay a fine of €250,000 for each violation.

Here is an official statement issued by Samsung on the ruling of the German court:
Samsung is disappointed with the court’s decision and we intend to act immediately to defend our intellectual property rights through the ongoing legal proceedings in Germany and will continue to actively defend these rights throughout the world.
The request for injunction was filed with no notice to Samsung, and the order was issued without any hearing or presentation of evidence from Samsung.
We will take all necessary measures to ensure Samsung’s innovative mobile communications devices are available to customers in Europe and around the world.
This decision by the court in Germany in no way influences other legal proceedings filed with the courts in Europe and elsewhere.
