Score one for Samsung here, as the Asian giant managed to have its ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 slate lifted. Previously, a German court decided to forbid the company to sell its new tablet throughout Europe, with the exception of Holland. Now, they’ve backed out of this decision.

What Apple received in the first place was a preliminary injunction and the Netherlands market will be addressed in a further suit in mid-September. There will also be a hearing in a German court on August 25th and over the past week, we’ve found something pretty nasty on Apple’s side: tampered evidence. It appears they’ve used, either by mistake or voluntarily some edited pictures that made the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 seem more similar to the iPad.

It seemed strange in the first place a court in Germany can rule out a product for the entire Europe. Who are they to decided for other territories? Samsung caught wind of that and only admitted the authority of the German court in Germany, not the entire Europe. The German branch of Samsung remains under ban, at least for now, but in the following weeks that will be solved as well. With HTC also attacking Apple now that the Motorola patents are in Google’s possession, the fruit should be worried right about now…
