Samsung had prevailed over Apple from the Australian court ruling's temporary ban. So much for that. It turns out court orders have banned the tablet another week from sale, more specifically until December 9th. The case remains open because the High Court of Australia was forced to extend the ban until it heard Apple's special leave application.
has been in quite the legal battle with Apple Inc. in recent months over whether their Galaxy Tab 10.1 could rest on Australian shelves. Court rulings had prohibited sale of the device with a temporary ban until now.
worldwide crusade against Android in general, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in particular. Apple's lawyers scored a major victory earlier this year when a sales ban injunction was granted, essentially making Samsung's tablet illegal to sell in the entire country. Naturally Samsung appealed the case, and at least one of the three appeals judges seems to be sympathetic, labeling Apple's iPad market share as a monopoly.
sales ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 by importing them directly from China without buying them from Samsung first. Well it looks like Apple's legal reach (not to mention gall) knows no bounds: the company has halted sales at all but one of the "rogue" retailers, in some cases using threatening letters to convince them of their position.
shutting down the competition. Apple's injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was upheld in Australia today, and if other courts see this as precedent, that very well could happen. The patents in question are so far-reaching that, in Australia at least, the ruling could prevent any other Android tablets from being sold.
any time soon, Australian citizens can be glad that they're getting the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note. Early tomorrow (or in U.S. terms, late tonight) Samsung announced plans to distribute the jumbo smartphone there in "early 2012." Australia is only the second market confirmed to get the flagship device.
HTC Holiday keeps popping up its head for everyone to see and today it has done it again. It was first spotted way back in August after someone sold it on eBay, and since has seen countless leaks. Today was no different and it was spotted in Australia soaking up the sun and running some impressive 4G speeds.
might be halted in Australia but quickly learned they will continue as planned and go on sale shortly.
