Apple notches win against Android
Apple scored a legal victory in its legal tussle with Samsung Electronics over Android devices. Apple has been granted a preliminary injunction by a German court that bans the Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 from being sold in nearly all European Union nations. The ban includes all nations in the EU except for the Netherlands. As with prior complaints, Apple claims the Galaxy Tab is illegally copying technology used in the iPad.
The battle is part of a wider conflict between Apple and the various companies supporting Android. With Google’s mobile software gaining momentum, Apple is attempting to take the wind out of Android’s sails with lawsuits against several of its key supporters.
