Apple Granted Injunction In E.U. Stopping Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Sales [bbc.co.uk]
Apple has been granted a temporary injunction preventing Samsung Electronics from selling iPad tablet computer rival Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the European Union, except the Netherlands.

An Apple spokeswoman confirmed the ruling had been made by a court in Germany, after Apple argued the Korean firm had infringed its patents.

It is the latest setback for Samsung's launch of the Galaxy.

The Galaxy's Australian release has been delayed due to a similar lawsuit.

shape with a dominant display screen, narrow borders, a predominately flat front surface, a flat

form factor.
