Last week we heard that Apple’s injunction against Samsung which stopped Samsung selling and importing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 had been upheld in Germany, although now it would appear that the injunction doesn’t really stop Samsung from importing and selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany.
According to a recent report by OS News, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is still on sale in Germany at a number of retailers, and the ban granted to Apple only covers Samsung Germany and not other divisions of Samsung.
What this means is that Samsung Germany cannot advertise or sell the deice in Germany, but other retailers can sell it, and it would appear that they can also order more stock from other divisions of Samsung as long as they don’t purchase the new stock from Samsung Germany.
This is good news for consumers who want to get their hands on the new Galaxy Tab 10.1, and it sort of makes Apple’s injunction that the German court granted totally pointless.
