This morning we heard Samsung’s side of the story after Apple tried to get the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet blocked in Australia. Samsung remains adamant that an ‘Australian model’ will still launch ‘in the near future’ — but now, as expected, that definitely won’t be next week. Here’s what Samsung has to say:
Postponement of Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 Media Launch Event
11th August 2011
In light of the current legal proceedings by Apple Inc. against Samsung Electronics Australia, Samsung regrets to announce it will be postponing its media launch event, scheduled for 11th August 2011, for the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1.
Samsung will announce a new date for the GALAXY Tab 10.1 media launch event as soon as practicable.
