Apple passes on Samsung's truce offer for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia, says it is just buying time

Apple passes on Samsung's truce offer for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia
Samsung has told the judge in the Australian patent infringement case against its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet that the deal it proposed to Apple in order to continue with the slate launch, has stalled: "It is not going to be achievable your honor, given the positions advanced by each party," was the comment of a Samsung lawyer.

Apple's attorney Steven Burley said they won't be tricked into anything that will entail Samsung restarting the sales and marketing activities of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, and that Samsung's offer and its maneuvering regarding presence on an earlier hearing is all just trying to buy time, so as it can launch the slate:

Apple already warned the Australian online electronics retailer Kogan that it will be sued for patent infringement if it continues with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 marketing activities, and the business complied citing unwillingness to engage in "pointless litigation".
