Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 imports banned in most of Europe

Samsung’s sleek entry into the tablet market, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, has been banned for import in most of Europe after a late Tuesday ruling from a German judge.

A judge granted Apple a preliminary injunction against Samsung, banning the import of the tablet in Europe, excluding the Netherlands. Apple has said that the Galaxy line of products “slavishly copies” the iPad and iPhone.

The order is a blow to Samsung, which says it received no notice of the order before it was handed down, Bloomberg reported.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 has already been removed from Amazon.co.uk following the order.

Apple’s continuing with its war over IP in Europe. Ars Technica reported that the court documents from the Samsung case show that Apple’s going after the Motorola Xoom as well.
