Samsung's Galaxy Tab has been banned from sale in Europe, following a dispute with Apple.
Apple, which has accused its rival of "slavishly" copying its iPad design, has successfully had the Galaxy Tab blocked from sale in Australia as well.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 only hit shelves in the UK on Friday, but according to a report in The Telegraph it has been banned from sale in Europe by an injunction from a German court.
The report said Samsung could appeal against the injunction, but the process could take as long as four weeks and the ban would remain in the meantime.
We've yet to hear back from either Samsung or Apple regarding the ban. A spokeswoman from UK retail chain Dixons said the tablets remained on sale.
"We are aware of this injunction only because it's been reported," she said, adding that Dixons was in contact with Samsung regarding the issue. She could make no other comment in the meantime.
Apple is a major customer of Samsung, and a US judge has told the pair to resolve the issue out of court.
