Samsung Galaxy Tablet Launch Delayed In Australia Due To Apple Suit

Samsung has delayed the launch of its ambitious Galaxy Tablet in Australia as the ongoing lawsuit with Apple Inc. gathers pace. Samsung spokesman said that they are only delaying the launch till some “favorable conditions” are met.

Samsung Electronics is the biggest competitor of Apple in smartphone and tablet markets because of its cost effective products and its ability to provide better services at the minimal cost.

Apple sued Samsung Electronics in April this year over patent infringement issues. The Cupertino, California based company claims that Samsung has copied the iPhone and the iPad’s design in its Galaxy range of products.

A Sydney court has provided an injunction which prohibits Samsung to release its Galaxy Tab. Samsung has confirmed that Apple filed for an injunction but at the same time, it declared that this will not affect sales of its Galaxy tab.

This injunction cannot be lifted without agreement with Apple which means that the future of the Galaxy Tab depends completely on this lawsuit and even more on the future relations between both these tech giants.

Will Samsung reach an agreement with Apple or will the Australians be deprived of the Galaxy Tab?

The best feature in this PC is that it comes with the same Film-type Patterned Retarder(FPR) display technology which the electronics giant uses in its CINEMA 3D TV. This feature provides users relief from using heavy 3D goggles as it provides support for the use of lightweight 3D goggles.

The In Plane Switch(IPS) screen technology helps users who cannot directly face the 23″ LED screen by providing 178 degree viewing angle, thus relieving them from poor quality images.

Hackers Steal Data Of 35 Million South Koreans

According to South Korean authorities, hackers have gained access to major South Korean websites by using a Chinese Internet Address and have stolen personal information of nearly 35 million users.

These attacks are being said to be originated from Seoul and have targeted Nate and Cyworld which are managed by SK communications. Nate is a search engine and Cyworld is a social networking website and both of these sites have at least 30 million users.

Hackers have stolen personal information such as names, email IDs, phone numbers and resident registration numbers of the targeted users. This information is very vital as a cyber criminal can use it to impersonate a specific user and can commit crimes for which the target may be held responsible.

SK Communications has asked police to look into the matter and the Korea Communications Commission is currently investigating this security breach.

This year has seen a large number of security breaches all over the globe. The most notable one was the hacking of Sony’s PlayStation Network from which the private information and the credit card details of around 1 million users were stolen.

Till now, no official statement has been issued by SK Communications.
