Yesterday we told you how it looked like Samsung was being blocked from selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia due to a complaint that Apple had filed. And well, despite those reports coming from a reputable source, it looks like there is more to that story. Thankfully the latest comes from a statement that was released by Samsung in which they say that the model Apple filed the complaint about was not the model they were planning to sell in Australia. In other words, while Apple has filed a complaint, it should not be affecting Samsung’s Australian release plans for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. According to Samsung, a Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be released in Australia in the “near future.”
Apple Inc. filed a complaint with the Federal Court of Australia involving a Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 variant that Samsung Electronics had no plans of selling in Australia. No injunction was issued by the court and the parties in the case reached a mutual agreement which stipulates that the variant in question will not be sold in Australia.
A Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 for the Australian market will be released in the near future.
This undertaking does not affect any other Samsung smartphone or tablet available in the Australian market or other countries.
