Samsung pulls Galaxy Tab 7.7 from German fair

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7

Visitors to Berlin’s IFA electronics fair hoping to see the new Galaxy Tab 7.7 computer were left disappointed after Samsung Electronics pulled the tablet from show amid a legal spat with Apple.

The Galaxy 7.7 was pulled over the weekend after a Duesseldorf court issued a temporary injunction against marketing the device, which Apple says copies its iPad2.
The Duesseldorf court has already banned sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany. A final ruling on the latest model is expected Friday.

Consumers visiting the IFA on Monday said they regretted the removal, calling it “sad.” Consumer electronics trader Carsten Niebuhr said he viewed the allegations of copyright violation as exaggerated, noting that “these products just can’t be made any other way.”
