German court tells Apple to cool it, Galaxy Tab 10.1N injunction unlikely

When Apple's patent case against Samsung in Germany led to a total sales injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung released a revised version named the Galaxy Tab 10.1N. The updated hardware altered the design and branding of the tablet in order to avoid violating Apple's design patents, most notably with a set of front-facing speakers that flanked the screen. Apparently it wasn't good enough for Apple, and continuing in their worldwide crusade against all things Android they petitioned the court for yet another sales injunction in November. Reuters reports that the judge in the case has indicated that the updated hardware is sufficiency dissimilar to the iPad, and Apple's design patents are not being infringed.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N still under attack by Apple

Uh oh folks, it looks like Apple isn't ready to stop just yet and apparently the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N that Samsung released in Germany specifically to avoid Apple's lawsuits didn't manage to escape. Samsung has been under some heavy attack in Germany, Australia and other parts of the world for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 because Apple claims it infringes on their patents and design. Today Apple seeks another injunction on the new Tab 10.1N and a court date has been set.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1N Apple-dodging slate gets caught on video

If you haven't been following along, over in Germany the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been banned thanks to Apple's team of lawyers claiming it is a direct copy of the iPad and after plenty of litigation it was banned across Europe. Earlier this week we saw details of a Tab 10.1N with a very slight change of design to avoid those lawsuits so Samsung could sell their tablets in Germany. Today we have that new tablet on video in case you'd like to take a look.

Galaxy Tab 10.1N released in Germany, Samsung says “saugen sie es” to Apple

After winning an injunction against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany over some extremely vague design patents, Apple was sitting high on the hog, keeping the South Korean company from selling tablets in the country. Months later Samsung has responded with the Galaxy Tab 10.1N, a redesigned model that presumably skirts Apple's complaints to become legal in Deutschland. The new tablets will begin shipping in the next few days for €550, or about $743.

Samsung: Apple lawsuits didn’t change the Galaxy S III

After the Galaxy S III launch at the beginning of this month, some of our fellow Android bloggers (whom I have nothing but respect for, by the way) put forth the idea that the flagship phone's somewhat uninspiring design was created specifically to dissuade Apple's legal bulldogs from attacking. While there have been some excellent points made to that effect, Samsung Vice President Chang Dong-hoon categorically denied them, stating that "our change in smartphone design is part of a five-year plan, not a sudden turn-around."

Galaxy Tab 11.6 hiding on Samsung’s own website

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6-inch model is nothing more than a rumor for now. Previous rumors suggested this tablet would be coming with a retina or better quality display, and be Samsung's next flagship tablet with an impressive and high resolution Super AMOLED HD screen and more. While these are only still rumors at this point a new picture over on Samsung.com has us wondering again.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 hands-on

Earlier today we got an eyes-only look at Samsung's newest member of its stylus family, the Galaxy Note 10.1. We swung by Samsung's booth later in the day to get a closer look. The Galaxy Note 10.1 is physically similar to the new Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (man, they've got to work on those names) but uses a faster processor, an active digitizer stylus and Samsung's customized apps. As an extension of the original Galaxy Note it's pretty compelling - much more so than the lukewarm refresh that the primary Galaxy Tab line seems to be getting.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 official: we go eyes-on

Long live pen-based input! That seems to be Samsung's new watchword, as they're expanding the Note series from the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note to a new 10.1-inch model, based around their primary Galaxy Tab line. It's a familiar device if you've ever held a Galaxy Tab 10.1, even more so if you happen to have seen the German G-Tab 10.1N, as the new series of tablets copies its speaker-forward design. Specification wise, it gets an upgraded 1.4 dual-core Exynos processor and a new "8 Pi" S-pen works in conjunction with a Wacom digitizer and Samsung touch apps. Storage gets a new, larger 64GB option - otherwise, the tablet is identical to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 2. The biggest changes to the user experience come from a series of software apps running on the Ice Cream Sandwich-TouchWiz OS. In addition to the pen-based input, Samsung is pushing its "Live Panels" series of widgets, calling the experience a Multi-Screen interface. There's a heavy emphasis on notation, with magazine, diary, flash card and sketchbook apps. But it's more than just simple input: built-in handwriting and pattern recognition can convert your words to electronic text, even for standard mathematical functions. Simple shapes can be vectorized using Samsung's proprietary software. And it isn't just Samsung who's invited to the party. The Galaxy Note 10.1 includes Adobe's Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas, a pair of apps that normally cost $10 each. They both take advantage of the digitizer and stylus to sense pressure, speed and stroke, not unlike the desktop version of Photoshop working with a Wacom digital pad. Other Samsung pen-enabled apps include Slice It! and Comic Book as well as Catch Notes, Touchnote, and Hello Crayon. Samsung hasn't said when the larger Galaxy Note will become available, or for how much. Since they wouldn't let us handle the device ourselves, we've got to assume that there's a good bit of software engineering left to do. Obviously it'll warrant a premium over the standard Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 model, but since that is (and this is being generous) a light refresh at best, there's no way to know how much that will cost when it comes to market, either. Considering the added pen-based functionality and the new Samsung processor, the Galaxy Note 10.1 can now be considered Samsung's flagship tablet. We've been keeping an eye open around MWC 2012 for that rumored 11.6-inch tablet, but so far, it hasn't appeared. [gallery]

Samsung shows off Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 – Ice Cream Sandwich and not much else

Samsung's first volley of Mobile World Congress press includes and update to their Galaxy Tab flagship, given the rather uninspired moniker Galaxy Tab 2. It'll be one of the first Sammy tablets to run the Ice Cream Sandwich-TouchWiz combination in when it hits world markets in March, but beyond that, it isn't much changed from the model we've come to know over the last eight months. From a design perspective, the front-facing speakers and branding mimic Germany's Galaxy Tab 10.1N - no doubt to throw off the scent for Apple's legal bulldogs.

Dutch court rejects Apple’s case against the Galaxy Tab 10.1

After a solid year of courts beckoning to Apple's call, it would seem that sanity is returning to European benches. Taking a queue from Germany, which is set to reject Apple's patent case over the revised Galaxy Tab 10.1N, a Dutch court rejected Apple's final appeal to get Samsung's tablet banned from sale in the Netherlands. Free and Open Source Software advocate Florian Mueller reported the legal news on the FOSS Patents blog. The appeal denial is the latest in a string of many Apple defeats and few victories in the last few months.
