Back in August it looked as though the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 might disappear Europe-wide, courtesy of a complaint from Apple and a subsequent ruling from the Regional Court of Dusseldorf.
Thankfully said ruling was overturned, and it was decided that the sanction would only apply in Germany. Now, thanks to a few cheeky modifications, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has returned to the home of currywurst.
After the initial ruling, Samsung vowed: “We will take all necessary measures to ensure Samsung’s innovative mobile communications devices are available to customers in Europe and around the world.”
Clearly those measures have now been taken, though it’s not entirely clear what they were. Engadget notes that the black bezel appears to extend slightly further towards the metal rim, but otherwise…
Oh, and it’s no longer just the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. No siree; you’re looking at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N. Again, absolutely no idea what the “N” stands for. Neo? Nemesis? Nightrider?
In any case, it's good news for the Germans. “Galaxy Tab is back!” screams one particular retailer. "And currywurst for all!" he (probably) added.
