Apple patent row prevents sales of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia

Apple has prevented sales and advertising of Samsung’s Galaxy 10.1 tablet in Australia due to the ongoing patent row with the Korean tech co. over claims that Sammy’s slab infringes on Apple patents.

Despite differences between the Australian and United States version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 – which supposedly steals from Apple’s ideas in no less than ten instances – the former is due to be handed over to the Cupertino, California based tech giant for a look over within the 7 days prior to the originally scheduled release date.

Samsung will now need the court’s approval before their much-anticipated 10.1” Android-based tablet is allowed to go on sale on the Aussie market – or, the case is resolved (meaning it caves under the weight of Apple’s mighty fist).

The case regarding Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be reviewed by the Sydney Federal Court on August 29th.

This is the second report today of Apple’s further attempts to prove it’s the most menacing kid in the tech schoolyard, having already taken its “App Store” crusade against Amazon into Europe and preventing the German version of the online retailer from adding anymore mobile apps to its library.
