  • Video: Video: Samsung makes the 7in Galaxy Tab disappear

    Samsung has removed every trace of its Galaxy Tab 7.7 from the company booth at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 was one of the products introduced during the Samsung press conference, but after just about 2 days on the show floor, the product vanished. A PR spokesman at the booth had little to say. Apple is suing Samsung to stop sales of the 7.7's big brother, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, claiming that Samsung copied the design iPad 2. Recently a German court upheld a preliminary injunction ordering Samsung to stop selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in that country. Samsung's lawyers must have anticipated the possibility that the court's ruling would apply to the smaller tablet too. When it was demonstrated by Samsung staff the 7.7 had a prominent warning sticker. Samsung covered up the signage for the tablet as well. You can see in the before and after images in this video. In one image a backlit sign for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is visible, but by Sunday it was replaced with an advertisement for the Note. On one of the walls at the booth it looked as if a piece of text was slapped over what previously advertised the Tab 7.7. The change likely wasn’t easy. Signage needed to be printed overnight and the hardware at the booth needed to be replaced. Not to mention the tens of thousands of consumers and press walking the show floor won’t be able to try out the product. European intellectual property laws allow companies to protect to the appearance of their products, in addition to the copyright, patent and trademark rights recognized in other jurisdictions. Apple claims the appearance of the larger Galaxy Tab is too similar to that of its iPad 2, the design of which is registered with the European Union's Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market.
