Australian Court Lifts Ban on Galaxy Tab 10.1

As they say, timing is everything. Australians who want to purchase a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 for the holiday season can now do so without breaking the law.

Although the Australian court has banned the sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 since October due to the well-publicized patent infringement battle with Apple, several retailers in Australia have still been selling the tablets.

While it’s still too early to do a victory lap, Samsung is taking the decision in stride: “Samsung Electronics Australia is pleased with today’s unanimous decision by the Federal Court to lift the preliminary injunction on sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. We believe the ruling clearly affirms that Apple’s legal claims lack merit.”
