Samsung gets date for Galaxy Tab 10.1 appeal

Samsung gets date for Galaxy Tab 10.1 appealIt’s a shame that Apple is so vigorously defending its entirely original concept for a touchscreen tablet (ahem), ‘cause we rather like the look of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Apple has had a preliminary injunction served against Samsung’s super slim tablet which could see it removed from European shelves for good. However, Sammie has now received a date for its appeal. Sweet.

Samsung will put forward its case to the Regional Court of Dusseldorf on August 25.

The South Korean manufacturer released an initial statement explaining: “The request for injunction was filed with no notice to Samsung, and the order was issued without any hearing or presentation of evidence from Samsung. We will take all necessary measures to ensure Samsung’s innovative mobile communications devices are available to customers in Europe and around the world.”

Earlier this month, Apple told Pocket-lint: "It's no coincidence that Samsung's latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad, from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging. This kind of blatant copying is wrong, and we need to protect Apple's intellectual property when companies steal our ideas."

Or maybe you’re just crapping it a bit because the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is pretty sweet?

Guan...
yeah...excellent point. Starfleet ensigns have been carrying pad/tabs for decade.
Also, if you watch 7 of 9's debut on Voayager you'll see the Borg use multitouch touchscreen tabs and consols... More ironically: in Voyager's Future's End episode, a very Steve Jobs-ian tech mogul disrupts the market with inventions he stole from the Borg via time travel....
Man...how's that for art imitating life imitating art...?

Furthermore:
I just nearly bought the Samsung tab. It is instore and on sale in various irish (EU) shops. Gorgeous device. Sitting beside the iPad 2 there was no doubt which one I would have picked had I any use for it.
