Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 available again in Germany

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 available again in Germany
Back in August we reported that sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 were halted in Germany due to patent infringement claims from Apple. Apple claimed that the physical design of Samsung’s tablet was too close to the look of the iPad.

Samsung has redesigned the tablet and re-released it in Germany as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N. Cyberport, a German electronics retailer, is already taking orders for the white 16GB model of the tablet on its website for €549.

The picture below shows the old model at the bottom and the new Galaxy Tab 10.1N on the top. It looks as though the major difference is the metal trim on the new device wraps around further in the front. At this point in time, it looks as if Samsung is making the minimal changes necessary to get its popular Android-based tablet back on the shelves in time for the holiday shopping season.

In the coming weeks we shall see if the additional metal detailing will differentiate Samsung’s black, rounded rectangle from Apple’s black, rounded rectangle enough to keep Apple from pursuing another injunction.

3 months is pretty fast, its not like they are fixing rrod's. with the holiday season rolling around, a big price break and launch of ice cream yum mitch helps.

Anything that's rectangular and has a touchscreen is going to look like a f**king iPad. Come on, Taco. Time to cut the bulls**t.

Shameful? Have you read any of your posts recently? If Steve Jobs was alive and saw what kind of reputation you bring to iPhone fans he would steal your iPhone and then blacklist you from ever buying another.

\"In the coming weeks we shall see if the additional metal detailing will differentiate Samsung’s black, rounded rectangle from Apple’s black, rounded rectangle enough to keep Apple from pursuing another injunction.\" - Charlene S. Possibly the best statement I\'ve seen in months on PA.

Hehe eat THIS, Stupid Apple. What will you say now? That the new Galaxy Tab looks like the food tray used to serve Hamburgers (arsenic and mercury free, and highly recyclable of course) at the Apple iCafeteria?
