Galaxy Tab 10.1N

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus N heads to Germany

The wave of Samsung Galaxy tablets continues today with yet another model hitting the shelves soon. Samsung has released a model for almost every size we can think of and today Samsung has outlined and priced their new Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus "N" model headed to Germany. It was announced back in January but now is coming soon. The difference over the current 7.0 Plus available today, is the N model has been changed to avoid the lawsuits and patent wars by Apple over in Germany.

German court tells Apple to cool it, Galaxy Tab 10.1N injunction unlikely

When Apple's patent case against Samsung in Germany led to a total sales injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung released a revised version named the Galaxy Tab 10.1N. The updated hardware altered the design and branding of the tablet in order to avoid violating Apple's design patents, most notably with a set of front-facing speakers that flanked the screen. Apparently it wasn't good enough for Apple, and continuing in their worldwide crusade against all things Android they petitioned the court for yet another sales injunction in November. Reuters reports that the judge in the case has indicated that the updated hardware is sufficiency dissimilar to the iPad, and Apple's design patents are not being infringed.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N still under attack by Apple

Uh oh folks, it looks like Apple isn't ready to stop just yet and apparently the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N that Samsung released in Germany specifically to avoid Apple's lawsuits didn't manage to escape. Samsung has been under some heavy attack in Germany, Australia and other parts of the world for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 because Apple claims it infringes on their patents and design. Today Apple seeks another injunction on the new Tab 10.1N and a court date has been set.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1N Apple-dodging slate gets caught on video

If you haven't been following along, over in Germany the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been banned thanks to Apple's team of lawyers claiming it is a direct copy of the iPad and after plenty of litigation it was banned across Europe. Earlier this week we saw details of a Tab 10.1N with a very slight change of design to avoid those lawsuits so Samsung could sell their tablets in Germany. Today we have that new tablet on video in case you'd like to take a look.

Galaxy Tab 10.1N released in Germany, Samsung says “saugen sie es” to Apple

After winning an injunction against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany over some extremely vague design patents, Apple was sitting high on the hog, keeping the South Korean company from selling tablets in the country. Months later Samsung has responded with the Galaxy Tab 10.1N, a redesigned model that presumably skirts Apple's complaints to become legal in Deutschland. The new tablets will begin shipping in the next few days for €550, or about $743.
