Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Set to Launch in Australia Despite Apple’s Legal Challenge

In a recent development, Samsung has communicated to Ausdroid its intentions to release an Australian-specific version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, despite legal challenges from Apple. Samsung’s statement clarified:

Apple Inc.

lodged a legal complaint in the Federal Court of Australia concerning a variant of the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 that we had no intention of selling in Australia. The court did not issue an injunction, and both parties have reached a mutual agreement that this specific variant will not be sold in Australia.

We will soon release a Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 tailored for the Australian market.

This agreement does not impact any other Samsung mobile devices available in Australia or elsewhere.

We remain committed to vigorously defending our intellectual property and ensuring our ability to continue innovating and growing in the mobile communications sector.

Samsung refuted any injunction being issued and indicated that the agreement reached will allow the introduction of the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab to the Australian market.

Details on what differentiates this Australian version or its release timeline remain undisclosed, but the assurance of its upcoming availability is promising news for Australian consumers eager for this Android device.
