Galaxy Tab banned for another week


blog Looks like the Apple/Samsung court shenanigans aren’t over yet. We just got the following statement from Samsung, indicating that the ban on the company’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet will remain for another week, while the High Court decides if it wants to hear Apple’s case on the matter:

“The High Court of Australia has granted a stay until December 9 to allow it to consider whether to accept Appleā€™s application for special leave to appeal. Samsung believes Apple has no basis for its application for leave to appeal and will vigorously oppose this to the High Court.”

How long is this debacle going to go on for? And, repeating my ongoing question about this matter … does anyone really care whether the Galaxy Tab goes on sale in Australia? Is anyone actually hanging out to buy it? Only time will tell. It would be pretty amusing if the Galaxy Tab 10.1 did eventually go on sale … and retailers couldn’t get people to buy the tablet.

  1. They’re certainly getting plenty of advertising… (I was going to say “free advertising”, but that would obviously be inaccurate).

  2. I do want to buy it, but at this point it would have to at least be close in price to the Xoom to get me across the line… as much as Apple’s lawsuit has picked the Galaxy Tab as ‘the’ tablet to have.. apart from being thinner, I havent found anything overly compelling about it over the Xoom.. and having a Samsung Galaxy S2, I’m not a huge fan of their GUI..

    • I don’t think Google allowed much customization on Honeycomb, but It’s Android… if you don’t like the GUI change it :)
