Last week Samsung announced a range of new products, one of those was the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, the successor to Samsung’s original Galaxy Tab tablet, and now it looks like Samsung has been forced to remove the Galaxy Tab 7.7, plus all promotional material from this years IFA in Berlin.
According to Florian Mueller from Foss Patents, the reason that Samsung has removed the new Galaxy Tab 7.7 from its IFA stand is because of the ongoing court case with Apple.
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 was banned in Germany a while back, and now it would appear that Apple may have obtained a new injunction against the new Galaxy Tab 7.7 which was only announced last week, Samsung had the following to say about it.
“Samsung respects the court’s decision,” Chung said, adding that the company believes it “severely limits consumer choice in Germany.” Samsung will pursue all available options, including legal action, to defend its intellectual property rights”
Samsung not being able to show their new Galaxy Tab 7.7 at IFA isn’t the best news, and this sort of things could continue for some time until either Apple or Samsung wins in court or the come to some sort of agreement.
