Sing-a-song-a Samsung

Samsung has shaken Apple's tree by getting its previously banned Galaxy 10.1 tablet back in European stores, after a Dusseldorf court preliminary injunction ruled against the new Galaxy 7.7 in Europe.

Apple managed to get the 10.1 tablet banned from being sold in early August, but that ban has now been temporarily suspended by a German Court. But earlier this week Apple managed to stall the arrival of Samsung's newest tablet, the Galaxy 7.7 – a move suggesting that the war over patents is still raging.

Andrew Harrison, CEO of Best Buy Europe, said, 'The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is truly paving the way for upgrades on features in tablets to meet the changing demands of consumers on the go. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 fills the gap in the market between laptops, e-readers, TVs and smartphones, combining all in one with a high definition screen and capabilities. We’re looking forward to seeing the great reactions from our customers when it hits stores.'

And while Apple seem happy to employ these bear-like tactics on rival firms, the iPad goes from strength to strength sales-wise, with the Samsung tablet so far lagging behind. Goes to show that to be a success you can't be complacent.
