In a move that will surprise nobody, Samsung has elected to appeal a recent court order that has effectively banned the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet from sale during its court battle with rival tech firm Apple.
Apple's legal claims put to the test: Just how similar is the Samsung Galaxy S II to the Apple iPhone 4?
The preliminary injunction, which was issued in a German court earlier this month, has barred Samsung from distributing its Galaxy Tab 10.1 touchscreen tablet across most of Europe, including the UK.
A seperate lawsuit was also issued in Australia; at the time of writing, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 cannot be legally sold in this country.
Both court injunctions were made at the request of Apple, who has accused its rival of "slavishly" copying its products (read the full story here).
In other news, Samsung achieved 500 per cent year on year growth in smartphone shipments during the last quarter, with the company on track to overtake Apple in smartphone sales, according to analysts.
Apple is also tipped to be mounting a lawsuit against Motorola for its Xoom tablet.
