Apple Pulled Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Out Of IFA Show In Germany

Yesterday Apple has achieved one more legal victory over Samsung by banning Samsung from selling its tablets in Germany. Last week pan-European CES-like IFA show featured new consumer products from almost every manufacturer except Apple.

This year most of the buzz revolved around Samsung’s new devices, the Galaxy Note 5.3 and the Galaxy Tab 7.7. Both run Android 3.2 and feature 1280×800 Super AMOLED Displays, but the Galaxy Tab 7.7 falls under the group of devices that Apple is attempting to ban and currently a set of injunctions prevent Samsung from selling the tablet in different regions of the world.

It is interesting that originally Samsung has showed the Tab devices to reporters with stickers “not for sale in Germany”. But on Saturday night Samsung began covering up the advertisements and removing the tablets from the floor as if the device never existed.

It seems that Apple block the whole line of the Samsung’s tablet. Apple’s injunction is likely to be very broad as the Tab 7.7 weighing just 334 grams is much smaller and has a higher resolution display than the iPad.

According to Bloomberg, a Seoul-based spokesman for Samsung James Chung said by telephone that just-unveiled Galaxy Tab 7.7 was pulled out of the IFA show in Berlin after a Dusseldorf court accepted Apple’s request to ban marketing and sales of the product.

He said that the company respects the decision of the court, but Samsung believes this considerably restricts the consumer choice in Germany. And added that Samsung will exercise all possible options, including legal suits, to protect its intellectual property rights.
