Samsung attempts to appease Apple
Samsung is attempting to appease Apple by offering to change some of the features o the Galaxy Tab 10.1, so that it can be released for sale in Australia.

In an attempt to overturn the ban on its Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia, Samsung has offered to remove some features, according to the BBC.

The ban on sales is part of the ongoing war between Apple and Samsung that has been fought in courtrooms across the globe.

Apple has claimed that the Galaxy Tab copies many of the Apple iPad 2's features.

According to the BBC Samsung is also rumoured to have made an offer to settle the dispute between the two firms so it can launch the tablet in Australia.

Apple has replied to Samsung's attempt at appeasement and said it needed time to consider the merit of Samsung's proposals.

Both companies will return to court on 4th October, but if Apple accepts Samsung's settlement offer, the court case could end and the Galaxy Tab could be launched.

Apple's initial claims against Samsung mentioned the violation of 13 patents, but Samsung has taken out or altered all but three.

The Galaxy Tab was originally expected to be launched in 11th August, it was delayed by the court battle and moved to 30th September and has now been postponed for a third time.

Appl and Samsung are currently in court battles in the US, Germany and the Netherlands.
