    A Düsseldorf court has set a date to hear an appeal from Apple, which is seeking an injunction preventing Samsung Electronics from selling a tablet modified to beat an earlier injunction, a court spokesman said on Friday.

    The hearing is set for June 5, said Ulrich Egger, a spokesperson for the higher regional court in Düsseldorf.

    Düsseldorf's regional court decided last year that the design of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 is too close to an Apple registered design, and banned sales of the device. Samsung appealed the decision, but in January the higher regional court in Düsseldorf upheld the ban.

    Meanwhile, Samsung had altered the design of its tablet to circumvent the injunction, adding speaker grills to the front, changing the bezel and calling the revised model the Galaxy Tab 10.1N.

    Apple sought to ban sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1N too, but a judge at the regional court in Düsseldorf ruled in February that its design was sufficiently different. It is that ruling that Apple will seek to have overturned at the June 5 hearing.

    There will probably be no verdict in June, with the court expected to rule later this year, according to Egger.

    A second German court favored Samsung over Apple in February: The regional court of Munich also ruled that Samsung is allowed to keep selling the 10.1N in Germany.

    Neither Apple nor Samsung could be reached for comment.
    So Samsung tries to make their tablet look different as Apple wanted them to do earlier, not good enough for Apple.

    It should be clear to the judges by now they're not doing this for any legal reason and just want to remove all the competition

    Isn't the aspect ratio of the galaxy tab entirely different, anyway? I mean, that's a pretty major difference by default, along with the fact that there's no massive Apple logo stamped on the back.

    Fuck off Apple, work your competitors out of bussiness by improving your product instead of suing the others into oblivion.

    The only thing that is keeping me using iPhone is Apple's Massive AppStore.

    There are so many good apps there.

    Seriously Apple, fuck off. You wanted the Galaxy Tab altered, they did so, you're STILL pissed? Holy shit Apple is like the king of the playground in kindergarden.
