Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales in Europe back up! Temporarily…
The German Court responsible for banning of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Europe just reconsidered it’s decision, after realizing that it may not have the authority to remove product sales outside the country. The ban on the whole of Europe save the Netherlands, thus, has been temporarily lifted till the South Korean company makes its appeal on the 25th of August.
“Since it is in dispute whether a German court has authority to prevent a company based in South Korea from selling goods beyond Germany, the court decided to lift the order for countries outside Germany for the time being, a spokesman for the regional court in Düsseldorf, Germany, said Tuesday.”
Apple is already showing guilty signs as the story of “flawed images” of Samsung’s tablet becomes the hype on the internet. Learn more about that here
We’re not sure if the whole business had any real effect on Samsung since, according to Engadget, the tablets already in retailers were not affected. Secondly, this abrupt news certainly looks like a win-win for Samsung on 25th August, the day of hearing.
Another question comes to mind; even if somehow Apple won the case, which looks very unlikely, the Court still shouldn’t have any authority to ban the product outside Germany, right?
