The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 lost its chance to be on the shelf with other latest gadgets in one of the world’s largest electronics shows after Apple won another injunction impeding Samsung Galaxy Tab... sales in Germany. The device was pulled out of Samsung’s booth at the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA 2011), an international consumer electronics expo in Berlin.

The Dusseldorf Regional Co...

We’ve already talked about Samsung’s legal troubles before. But it seems the Korean company has managed to get a little break from its problems with Apple over the legal wrangling about... the Galaxy Tab 10.1. A German court has lifted a few of the restrictions on sales of the tablet in the European Union.

As a brief refresher on the issue, here’s what happened so...

Webwereld reconstructed Apple evidence

This is unbelievable, and it’s really starting to get ridiculous. Apparently Apple was so satisfied with the result of the first injunction in Germany, where they manipulated the image of the... Galaxy Tab 10.1 to make it the same size and give it a more 4:3 ratio, so they can “prove” that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is “virtually identical” to the iPad, that they decided to...

galaxy-tab-10.1

It seems that Samsung has already managed to lift the injunction on its Galaxy Tab 10.1 throughout Europe (except Germany), at least for now. One of the first things that I found odd with the German... Court putting an injunction on the Galaxy Tab 10.1, is that they managed to do it throughout Europe. I wasn’t aware that the EU had such a law where one, almost random, Court (Germany doesn̵...

Last week I was saying how the German Court’s decision to grant Apple an injunction over Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 makes little sense. Just because 2 products are somewhat similar “in... the same product category” doesn’t mean one should be blocked out from the market. It’s how competition works in the real world. But it seems that even they may have been misled by Appl...

Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-10.1-Reviews

Samsung and Apple have been at each others’ throats over patents for awhile now. The latest casualty in the entire mess was the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The Regional Court of DĂĽsseldorf recently decided... that the tablet should be banned from being sold in EU countries, a solid hit at its marketing strategy.

However, Samsung isn’t calling it quits just yet. The Korean company is all set to ap...

samsung-ipad-photo-frame

This photo frame was launched by Samsung in 2006, and if you wouldn’t know better, you’d probably think it’s an iPad, or at least a tablet that strongly resembles it. But wait a minute.... If this product came out in 2006 – does that mean it’s this product that looks like an iPad, or is it the iPad that looks like this product? Does that mean Apple copied Samsung’s innovati...

Apple-vs-Samsung-legal-drama-continues

It looks like the fun soap opera between Apple and Samsung isn’t going to slow down any time soon, folks. Most unfortunate for Android fans in Australia, the latest iteration in the ongoing legal... battle between Apple and Samsung has resulted in Samsung being told to halt sales and advertising of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 until the Korean company gets court approval that it may do so — or...

Android taxes for IP

Microsoft have consistently pointed out that Android is not free, nor open. Whether you agree on the latter point really depends on your definition.... If it is a matter of degree, then Android is ‘more open’ then WP7 and, of course, iOS. That much is for sure. However, Android is not free to HTC, Samsung and the like. Here’s why
