Samsung launches Galaxy Tab 10.1N to bypass injunction in Germany

In a move that could have only been better had they named it the Galaxy 10.1S, Samsung has skirted the injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 by modifying it and relaunching it as the Galaxy Tab 10.1N. This will allow Samsung to essentially relaunch the iPad clone, err Galaxy Tab.

A judge order left Samsung unable to sell the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany due to patent violations against Apple. The design changes are extremely subtle and likely just enough to get around the ruling.

The most noticeable difference between the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the 10.1N is the wrapping of the metal band to the front of the device. The original design had this band halted behind the bezel, which is apparently something that got under Apple’s skin from the get go. The software doesn’t appear to have changed, with only really slight icon differences, which could simply be photoshop side effects.
