Apple Blocks Sale of Galaxy Tab 10.1

With all the discussion about the Tab 10.1and the legal action from Apples injunction delaying the launch, thought a post around the email I received from Samsung would be worthwhile. In short, launch is delayed for the Galaxy Tab10.1

From Samsung's PR company:

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 11 August 2011, for the Samsung GalaxyTab 10.1.th. Samsung will announce a new date for the GalaxyTab 10.1 media launch event as soon as practicable.

Considering Apple has stated they want the Tab destroyed if the win the patent case pending against Samsung, the latter will be hoping it doesn't get that far.

While tech companies suing each other is nothing new (the number of current patent-related lawsuits going on around the world is staggering), this could be a game breaker as the slate market is set to become a very lucrative one over the next five years.
