Vendors Stockpile Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 for Retail Sales

It’s hardly been a few days since a Dusseldorf court granted Apple’s preliminary injunction against the new 7.7 Galaxy tablet in Europe, and the previously banned Galaxy Tab 10.1 is already officially available for sale.

According to reports, retail giants Best Buy and Carphone Warehouse are both stockpiling the device in bulk. The disputed tablet was banned from selling in the UK in early August. However, after a suspension in the preliminary injunction order, it has surfaced again in the market.

The Galaxy tab 10.1 is thinner and lighter than its arch rival Apple’s iPad 2, and it supports Adobe Flash Player too. In addition to that, one key aspect that separates the device from the rest floating around in the market is its Android HoneyComb OS, which no doubt can be termed as a blessing so far the functionalities and user experience are concerned.

Earlier in the week, another preliminary injunction by Apple was granted by a Dusseldorf court, resulting in a ban on the sales of the Galaxy tablet 7.7. So, it’s safe to assume that despite the lift of the injunction from the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the patent war between the two tech heavyweights remains as intense as it has been since the last couple of months or so.
