Three days ago, Germany's Dusseldorf Court announced it's decision on whether the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 should be banned in Germany. The tablet was banned because Presiding Judge Johanna Brueckner-Hofmann believed that "Apple’s minimalistic design isn’t the only technical solution to make a tablet computer, other designs are possible". The verdict surprised many, as what Apple wanted seemed quite severe. This verdict could possibly spread to other countries in the European Union, not just for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 but maybe all other tablets that use to the same basic design. This would give Apple a monopoly in one of the biggest tablet markets in the world.
