Samsung releasing redesigned Galaxy Tab 7.0N in Germany

Samsung to release redesigned Galaxy Tab 7.0N in Germany
In response to Apple’s preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 last year, Samsung released a an updated Galaxy Tab 10.1 N that included a contoured edge that wrapped around onto the front of the device, and a more prominent placing of their logo. While no official ruling has been handed down on the redesigned 10.1N version of the Galaxy Tab, one of the judges in the case publicly volunteered that Apple would be unlikely to get a ban on the new version, as the design changes cleared up any potential confusion for potential purchasers.

Samsung must have drawn confidence from the judge’s comments, as a similarly redesigned Galaxy Tab 7.0N Plus has appeared on a German mobile news site. The tablet’s innards appear to be identical to the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus shipping in the rest of the world, including an upgraded LCD panel, and Android Honeycomb 3.2 (presumably it would be a good candidate for an ICS update down the road).

The tablet will be available in Germany in silver or white later this month, and the suggested retail price is 600 €. None of the details should be surprising, but the release of another “N” variant suggests that Samsung is confident in their strategy to get around Apple’s design patents, and also shows the importance the company places on the European market for tablet sales.
