Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 No Longer Banned in Europe


European consumers outside of Germany can now enjoy one of the leading iPad clones on the market.

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is having a rough week. The company has been accused of doctoring an image of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in order to emphasize the device's similarity to the iPad. While I personally think that the claim is false, today's news from the Wall Street Journal (via AppleInsider) could very well make the forged image irrelevant.

According to the Journal, a German court has reversed its decision and partly lifted the ban on sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Unfortunately, the ban has only been lifted for countries outside of Germany. (This injunction did not apply to the Netherlands, where a separate case is still pending.)

The rest of the story is exactly what you'd expect: Samsung welcomed the court's decision while Apple reiterated its commitment to protecting its intellectual properties.

Hey, guess what Apple: HTC is just as committed.
