Apple was granted a preliminary injunction, preventing Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 from being sold in Europe.

Samsung seems to be facing some troubles with regards to its newly launched tablet. Recently, the Regional Court of Dusseldorf in Germany allowed Apple to file a preliminary injunction against Samsung, barring it from selling and promoting the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in any European countries except for The Netherlands.

As affirmed by the court, Apple claims that Samsung’s tablet breached their patents and even copied most parts of the iPad 2.

Although Samsung could appeal on this ruling, it would take them at least four weeks before they can do so.

One-size-fits-all charger will be available in Europe in 2011. Charging any cellphone will not be a problem anymore.
