Just in from Triple J news - an ABC reporter just called in from today's High Court deathmatch between Apple and Samsung to reveal that Apple have lost their last-ditch appeal to try to stop Samsung from being able to sell their Galaxy Tab Android tablet here in Australia.
Some more details are now available
on the ABC website; it sounds like good news for those eagerly hanging out to check out Samsung's tablet offerings.
Samsung immediately bounced out a prepared statement:
As the High Court has today rejected Apple’s leave to appeal, Samsung Electronics Australia is pleased to announce the highly anticipated Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 will be available in stores in time for the Christmas shopping period from a RRP of $579 (16GB WiFi variant) and a RRP of $729 (16GB 3G variant).
Samsung Electronics Australia is pleased with today’s judgment by the High Court of Australia to deny Apple’s request to appeal the decision of the Full Court.
The Full Court of Australia decision on November 30 clearly affirmed our view that Apple’s claims lack merit and that an injunction should not have been imposed on the GALAXY Tab 10.1.
