In a previous hearing Samsung had agreed to delay the launch of the US version of the tablet until the end of this week and provide Apple with samples of a modified Australian version at least a week ahead of its sale date. Patent experts accurately predicted that Apple, which believes Samsung slavishly copied the iPad's design, would not be satisfied with the modified Australian version.
Apple's counsel said that while the modified version had "some reduced functionality" it "will still infringe". They sought orders from the court re-affirming the previous block on sales of the US model and asked for a new order to prevent the sale of the Australian version at least until a hearing can take place at the end of September.
After returning to court this afternoon, Samsung has agreed not to sell or advertise the Galaxy Tab 10.1 before September 30th. Apple will detail the specific patents they allege this revision violates by Friday and will be provide a comprehensive statement by September 5th. Samsung will need to provide rebuttal points by September 16th and the matter will go to a formal hearing on the 26th and 29th of September.
