German ban on Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales upheld
Samsung was dealt a major setback today in Germany. A district court in Dusseldorf ruled that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is too similar to the iPad 2, and sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany will continue to be blocked. The decision also prevents Samsung's German subsidiary from selling the tablet device elsewhere in the EU, though other Samsung divisions can sell in those countries.
Samsung confirmed it will appeal the decision and said via a spokesperson "We are disappointed with this ruling and believe it severely limits consumer choice in Germany." Samsung still faces a similar case in Japan and the US. Undeterred by the ruling, Samsung and carrier NTT DoCoMo still plan to launch the launch tablet device next month.
