Samsung Loses German Appeal Over Tablet PC

Samsung Electronics lost an appeal against the ban of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 at the Dusseldorf regional court in Germany on Tuesday.

The court had issued an injunction against the sale of the tablet PC in August, upholding Apple's claim that Samsung infringed on iPad design patents.

As a result, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will remain banned in Germany. But Samsung has been selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1N there since last October, which has a slightly different design.
