Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Made to Quit IFA Berlin; Haunted by Apple Case

September 5, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Samsung fans, this could disappoint you big time! The new Galaxy Tab 7.7 and all promo material that spoke about the Android device having been forcefully removed from the IFA Berlin stands. You tend to ask why, right? The move comes because of a loss in the ongoing court case with Apple.

According to a court order, the sales and promotion of the new tablet has to be stopped in Germany. Sammy had brought the tablet to IFA Berlin with a sticker that said “This Product is currently not available in Germany”. The device can’t be a part of the show, even with that sticker – it seems.

It is now a double blow for Samsung as its Galaxy Tab 10.1 was earlier banned in the country. In responding to the court order, James Chung of Samsung said his company respects the court order, and will go to court and try all means to release their tablets in Germany.

As you all know, the Android 3.2 powered tablet is the next generation of the original Galaxy Tab slate. It boasts a 7.7-inch Super AMOLED touch screen with 1280 x 800 resolutions, a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB memory plus an expandable micro SD card slot, dual cameras (a 3.2 megapixel rear-facing shooter with LED flash and a 2 megapixel front-facing snapper), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Assisted GPS and much more.

The slate, which, measures 196.7x 133 x 7.89 mm and weighs 335 g is one of the most portable device in the market.

It is just frustrating for Sammy’s herd as they cannot lay their hands on the new superb Galaxy Tab 7.7 at the IFA trade show due to this case. What happens next is a question that time will be able to answer. In the meantime, we can see those smiling faces inside the Cupertino company’s offices.
