Apple and Samsung could have a decision on whether Samsung's Android-based Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be temporarily banned in Australia next week pending trial for patent infringement.
As part of the drama the Wall Street Journal said the court heard evidence from Apple's then-chief patent counsel Richard Lutton that Steve Jobs tried to head off hostilities last year because Samsung was such a large supplier to Apple. Obviously since their litigation has gone global his phone call was futile.
Some weeks ago Samsung informally agreed to withhold the challenged tablet from the Australian market until the court rules. It countersued in Oz on September 17 charging the iPhone and iPad with infringing seven of its patents.
Samsung is also trying to block the iPhone and iPad in Europe and Korea. Apple has gotten Samsung Germany from selling the Galaxy Tab and some Samsung phones banned by a Dutch court.
