When we last read about the fate of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia, things looked pretty bleak. Apple had succeeded in it's plan to innovate in the courtroom instead of the engineering department, and Samsung was blocked from selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the land down under by Aussie courts. Today we read about an interesting twist on this whole mess, one that's good news for Android fans. Samsung Electronics Australia has said in a statement that this particular legal action relates to a variant of the Tab 10.1 that they weren't planning on selling in Australia. They went further, saying that the Tab 10.1 will be released in Australia "in the near future".
Samsung hasn't provided any additional details, and we're left wondering exactly what this means. Could Samsung be planning on selling the 10.1v in Australia, or are there other variations that would place a Tab destined for Australia outside this legal finding? We're not sure, and Samsung isn't saying. We are sure, however, that no matter what Samsung does or which product gets released, Apple will funnel countless dollars towards getting it blocked. It should be interesting, to say the least.
