Samsung Ignores Apple, Will Sell Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia Anyway

Authored by: Steven Blum — Aug 2, 2011

Apple filed a complaint with the Federal Court of Australia in order to bar Samsung from selling their Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the country, but it appears Samsung is not going to let Apple boss them around so easily.

In a letter to Ausdroid, Samsung writes that the company "will continue to defend and protect our intellectual property to ensure our continued innovation and growth in the mobile communication business." This means the company will be releasing the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the country despite Apple's kicking and screaming. 

Commenters say it's likely that Samsung paid Apple to release a version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that doesn't involve features Apple complained about. Still, this is a great development for Android-loving Aussies.
