It appears that old Samsung’s fight with Apple over Galaxy products looking like the iPhone and Apple iPad has taken yet another turn, causing Samsung to remove their latest slate, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 from being on show at IFA in Berlin.
According to the guys over at Slash Gear then latest move in the Apple versus Samsung patent spat saw old Sammy cover up or remove any mention of the Android Honeycomb tablet from their stand at IFA 2011.
Brendon Gore, a spokesperson for Samsung Europe said, “Samsung has removed the Galaxy Tab 7.7 from our stand at IFA. We cannot make any further comment as we have not received an official statement from the court.”
Samsung officially announced the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 along with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.3 on Thursday, and Gore made it clear that the removal of anything to do with the Galaxy Tab 7.7 was a voluntary move by Samsung and not at the request of any court.
Although not official, it would seem that Samsung is expecting the same attempt by Apple to seek an injunction to halt the sales of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 in Germany just like that have with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 although there is currently no word from the court on the matter.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5.3 and the Samsung Wave 3 remain on display at IFA 2011 in Berlin, and it is only the 7.7-inch slate Samsung has decided to remove at this point until such times as the court’s officially announcement comes in.
Whether the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.3 will be added to Apple’s growing list of alleged patent infringing Samsung products at some point remains to be seen.
