    A report says that due to the lawsuite from Apple about patent infringement from Samsung, the Galaxy Tab will no longer be offered for sale in Australia. I hate seeing the competition deterred by legalities, but I also hate seeing millions in research spending pirated like they do so consistently in China.

    The galaxy was due to be released in August in Australia That is now delayed due to the law suit and has been blocked in court. I am unsure if Apple Australia is driving this or it is Apple USA.

    It was meant to say more friendly, but I got finger tied and could not change it. The iPad is a phenom in that none of the competition units have been able to get a foothold. Most of that comes from the way that Apple created a system atop the trust system they already had with the app store/itunes. The same reason why Apple is the number one smart phone manufacturer. Right now, they expect that the only real competition is going to come from Amazon. They already have a huge number of credit cards on file, an app store, and one of the biggest video and music online store. All the rest will fall by the wayside. The main opportunity for the others will be to concentrate on business applications where outfits like HP have a strong sales presence.
