Australians won't see the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet next week, because the High Court today extended the order that sees the ban on the device remain in place until next December 9 for the purpose of an expedited special-leave hearing.
The decision means that Samsung's win over Apple on Wednesday in the Federal Court of Australia has turned into a bittersweet victory, with the extension meaning that the Korean gadget makers hurried plans to launch the Galaxy Tab 10.1 before Christmas have been thrown into disarray.
Samsung told the court that it had planned a "high-velocity launch" of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 into the Australian market in order to maximize sales in the fast-moving Christmas sales period.
