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?

Samsung’s Profit Rises On Mobiles, But Falls On Other Products

The South Korean technology giant is gaining immense profit on its smartphones but is losing its revenues from its other electronic goods. Samsung’s smartphone’s are gaining huge popularity globally, but sadly same cannot be said for its other products.

According to a report, Samsung’s flat screen unit had huge losses in its second quarter and its other electronics suffered same kind of damage. This may be partially due to better alternatives available in the market which provide same features but at comparatively lower costs.

Furthermore, Samsung has failed to provide its users with new services like other Tech giants, Apple and Google, are providing. It is less likely that Samsung will be able to get customers like Apple has got.

Samsung has said that its sales were not good because the whole chip market is suffering from low demand as users get more and more inclined to smartphones as compared to LCDs, LEDs and computers.

If Samsung wants to make its sales comparative to the other manufacturers, it seriously needs to consider providing better services at an affordable price.

Despite its heavy loses, Samsung is going to increase its investment in semiconductors which it thinks will boost up its profits.
