Samsung Galaxy Tab: Australian court lifts Apple injunction against sale
Source: Guardian

Samsung is closer to selling its new Galaxy tablet computer in Australia after a court on Wednesday overturned a ruling that favoured Apple's allegations that Samsung had copied its iPad and iPhone.

But Samsung will have to wait a few more days before it can begin selling the Galaxy, after Apple indicated it would appeal to the nation's high court. The federal court agreed to keep the injunction in place until Friday while that issue is pending. Samsung might still be able to capitalise on the Christmas shopping season in Australia if it can ultimately win the patent war.

The ruling said evidence failed to show the Galaxy tablet infringed Apple's touchscreen patent. Justices said Apple would be unlikely to win if the case went to a trial. It criticised the earlier decision in Apple's favour as "clearly wrong".

In October a federal court justice, Annabelle Bennett, granted Apple's request for a temporary injunction against sale of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia, preventing the device going on shelves in its current form.

1. I love my Galaxy Tab 10.1
It was overreaching for them to prevent the sale of the Tab based on Apple's claims.

5. There are a couple of ways to do it
You can access the DCIM folder from whatever file storage app you use and delete the photos from there. Or you can go to the gallery and tap on the photo and menu icons will appear up top on the right you will see a little trash can. When you click it you can either confirm delete or cancel. HTH

4. I checked prices.
For the 32gb there was only a $50 difference between the Samsung Galaxy
and the iPad2.
