Android 118 Published by posted a news story that Apple took action against Samsung over the Tab, claiming that the design copies that of the iPad, and that it infringes various Apple patents.

According to patents expert Florian Mueller, the preliminary injunction granted by the German court prevents Samsung from selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 across the whole European Union, aside from the Netherlands.

Mueller said he was "surprised" by the omission, but added: "I'm still analysing the situation based on Apple's motion, which I've just obtained. My guess for the Netherlands is that there's a separate proceeding underway there."
