    Apparently, the Apple legal onslaught has really hammered Samsung in multiple ways. A new injunction was just garnered against the Samsung Galaxy 7.7 Android Tablet on September 2nd, causing Samsung to pull the device from the IFA 2011 expo. Samsung even went to the trouble of labeling the device with a "Not for sale in Germany" sticker, but this was not enough for Apple and the court system, so Samsung had to remove the device from the showroom floor. Here's a quote from the PhoneArena and Bloomberg article,
    According to the Bloomberg article, Samsung has probably lost sales of Android tablets totaling about half a million units so far this year because of the lawsuits. The Bloomberg article also indicated,

    I'm an avid Apple user, because of my recording studio, but I'm pretty fed up with Apple.
    All of these "injunctions" and patent things really get on my nerves. It seems super petty. They appear to be mad that Android devices are getting so much popularity, therefore they're like "Well, damn, we're gonna try and make it so you can't sell anything!"

    Pretty lame stuff.

    Already do. Apple uses some of the most shady business practices and yet they constantly get away with them. Its the only way they keep sales.

    I don't see how stopping Samsung's business if fair, make them pay $5 fee per machine, or make them hold the money aside until the the appeal. Stopping them from selling in an entire market!?! Over kill much?

    From what I've read everyone has 'borrowed' everyone's else's patents plus manufactures have shared back and forth,
    how can anyone keep it all straight?

    Hell, an example from the old days, Palm graffiti, got changed (kinda) and then when the anticlimax came we were stuck with the new code.

    How did they get the morons in Germany's courts to pass this injunction? It's not even the same form factor... unless apple photo-shopped the screen to 9.5 inches.

    You guys better stop using lower case i's. Apple owns all small vertical bars or lines with small dots or periods above them.

    Apple has enough money they should just let Samsung copy the iPad , Its not like anyone would ever think its an Apple device.
    Really why would Apple need to protect themselves.
    Apple should just watch everyone market devices that look like an iPad so that Android has a chance to catch up with a tablet.

    Its just not fair that Samsung cant copy the iPad ....
