It isn’t a new story, the Apple/Samsung Saga is never ending. Apple’s legal team managed to secure a preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Europe back in August, which prevented sales of the galaxy tab from going forward. Although we spotted the device still available in Frankfurt Germany as last as the 18th, but Samsung was restricted and agreed to neither sales nor promotion of the 10-inch, that restriction being limited to Germany alone. Now we have the IFA which is in Germany, we’ve discussed the Samsung Galaxy 7.7, and after being announced at the IFA in Berlin and we we’re able to get our hands on one. Check out our vid shot at the IFA in Berlin Germany from the show floor:

So quickly things change. Not even given the chance to wow the onlookers at the convention, the Samsung 7.7 has been removed. Why did Samsung remove their hyped up new product, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 from the IFA Show floor? The answer, “We cannot make any further comment as we have not received an official statement from the court.” coming from Samsung Europe spokesperson Brendon. Word from the tech world is that the move was voluntarily. Hard to believe with all the of hype surrounding their latest release.


What was is no more. Thanks to slashgear we’ve got some great photos of the Samsung 7.7 disappearing act (at the hands of Apple no doubt). Or just the bad luck location of the IFA? Being in Berlin, the counry Samsung agreed to do no business, maybe Samsung had considered the possibility that they were breaching that arrangement. Where previously the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 was.

 

More details on this story to come.
