The Düsseldorf court that blocked Samsung from selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Germany in September said Thursday that the changes Samsung has made in the modified Germany-only Galaxy Tab 10.1N are enough to distinguish it from the iPad and that Apple is unlikely to win a ruling against it on February 9.
Apple had complained to the court that the re-worked "N" was still a dead ringer for its widget and wanted it blocked too. Apple objections are based on its European design IP.
The "N" tablet has a thicker bezel design and the speakers are now on the front. Samsung's label is also reportedly bigger.

Apple is obviously going to have to hit out with stronger IP.
