Yesterday, Apple was granted a preliminary injunction against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 that has resulted in the temporary halting of sales and advertisements in the European Union.
It has now been uncovered in the complaint filed by Apple that the maker of the iPad is also filing suit against Motorola for its Xoom tablet. It is unclear at the moment whether Apple asked for an injunction, but based on the ruling yesterday, odds are in that favor.
Motorola and Apple having been in multiple patent wars since last year. Remember, however, that the complaint against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that resulted in the injunction was entirely due to design and not patents. Apple claims that the device looks too similar to theirs and would result in market confusion. It's likely that the complaint against Motorola is similar in nature.
We'll keep you up-to-date on the ongoing bickering between the tech giants and we're counting on it getting nastier before it gets more amicable.
