Apple Blocks Galaxy Tab 10.1 Sales In The EU

Posted Aug 10, 2011

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) was granted a sales injunction of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. This prevents Samsung from selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Europe until the legal action is concluded. Apple was granted the injunction by the Regional Court of Düsseldorf. The Netherlands was the only country that is allowed to keep selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Apple and Samsung are competitors and partners. Samsung is one of Apple’s biggest suppliers for iPad and iPhone screens. However Apple is accusing Samsung for copying their designs.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is powered by the Android operating system. Now the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is blocked in Europe and Australia. Apple is currently working on blocking all Galaxy devices into the U.S.
