Samsung wins right to sell Galaxy tablet

Apple has finally won its ongoing battle against Samsung, allowing it to sell the Galaxy tablet in Australia.

The final ruling comes after several weeks of court skirmishes between the two companies, with Apple accusing Samsung of patent infringement.

The High Court refused Apple the ability to appeal a prior decision made by the Federal Court.

“The Full Bench of the Federal Court of Australia decision on November 30 clearly affirmed our view that Apple’s claims lack merit and that an injunction should not have been imposed on the GALAXY Tab 10.1,” Samsung said in a statement.

Retailers expect the tablet will be on sale before Christmas.
