Another variant of the Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 for T-Mobile was approved by FCC.

The FCC approved yet another Galaxy Tab 10.1 variant, which is equipped to run on T-Mobiles’s network. The said tablet, which was filed under the model number SGH-T859, seems to match the external dimensions of the Wi-Fi and LTE Galaxy Tab 10.1 variant. The variant goes along with a GSM radio that supports T-Mobile’s 1700MHz network. It also has 850/1900MHz GSM, EDGE, WCDMA and HSPA networks.

Samsung followed the arrival of Wi-Fi edition in the market in June by equipping its iPad competitor with 3G and 4G radios for a number of cellular networks. Previous announcements confirm plans to provide the tablet through NTT DoCoMo in Japan, along with Rogers and Telus in Canada.

T-Mobile has yet to formally announce its launch plans for the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Samsung Faces Another Injunction, Pulls Out Galaxy Tab 7.7 from IFA

Written on September 05, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Another injunction from Düsseldorf regional court has urged Samsung to abandon its Galaxy Tab 7.7 promotion at the IFA trade show.

Samsung has once again faced a new injunction case coming from the Düsseldorf Court, which forced them to pull out its Android-based 7.7-inch tablet computers during the trade show in Berlin last Friday.

At first, it is not clear whether the company pulled the devices for personal reasons or in response to the new injunction. But eventually, Samsung’s spokesperson appeared to confirm that their action was due to the court-ordered ban. “Samsung respects the court’s decision,” Chung noted in a statement, saying that the company believes the ruling “severely limits consumer choice in Germany.”

Apple Gets Another Delay For Galaxy Tab 10.1 on Australia

Apple succeeded again in obtaining another delay for the launch of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia.

Apple managed to get another Australian delay for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 on Sunday. Samsung was scheduled to ship the Android tablet to the said country on September 12 after the first delay, but they agreed to move it back to September 30 — almost a month after the original release date.

The company dropped its objections after Federal Court Judge Annabelle Bennett said it would only make sense to wait until a hearing, due in the last week of September, that would determine whether a preliminary injunction would be upheld. The original agreement not to sell Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia was based on the US version of the said tablet, but with a view to the Australian version being different. However, it’s now likely that the Australian Galaxy 10.1 is shipping with the custom TouchWiz interface preloaded.

Amazon will be cutting down the cost of their tablet, and it might include the sophistication of their touchscreen.

According to DigiTimes’ sources, the decision of Amazon to cut costs on their tablet might include the refinement of the touchscreen. An off-hand industry suggested that the Android tablet would be utilizing just two-finger multi-touch, and not the 10-finger touch devices like the iPad 2 and others.

Losing the more advanced multi-touch could render the device incompatible with those several Android apps that might require more than two fingers. Apple took advantage of having much more support by enabling three and four finger gestures, as well as support for more third party apps.
