Samsung pulls tablet PC from trade show
Seoul: South Korea`s Samsung Electronics said Monday it has withdrawn its new tablet computer from a major electronics fair in Berlin after a German court accepted a complaint from US rival Apple.




Samsung Sunday removed its Galaxy Tab 7.7 inch from the annual IFA show following an order Friday from a district court in Duesseldorf banning sales and marketing, a company spokesman said.




"Samsung respects the court`s decision... and therefore decided not to display any more the Galaxy Tab 7.7 in the IFA," the company said in a statement. Samsung however vowed to take "all available measures, including legal options" to defend its presence in the European market, saying the court ruling "severely limits consumer choice in Germany".
Friday`s move by the Duesseldorf court follows an interim ban in late August on German sales of Samsung`s Galaxy Tab 10.1. That ban remains in force until the court makes its final ruling on Friday.




Samsung -- the world`s second-biggest mobile phone maker -- is embroiled in a series of patent lawsuits with Apple over designs and technologies in their smartphone and tablet computers.




Apple, in complaints filed to courts in several countries, requested a ban on the selling and marketing of Samsung smartphones and tablet PCs, which it said had "slavishly" copied Apple`s market-leading iPhone and iPad.




Samsung has launched counter-suits, claiming Apple infringed its wireless technologies.
