Days ago Samsung has offered Apple a mysterious deal to Begin Galaxy Tab 10.1 launch in Australia as we reported , but Apple refused the deal which we don’t know what it’s details and resume it’s lawsuit against Samsung , according to Reuters .
This rejection was predictable by most of the viewers of this patent war between Apple and Samsung as it is not logic for Apple to make such a deal with Samsung as in this time Apple proves that it is the stronger brand in this lawsuit so why to approve such a deal and give Samsung the opportunity to compete with iPad in Australia , which will reduce the sales of iPad in Australia for sure .
According to Reuters :
Apple says Samsung's Galaxy line of mobile phones and tablets "slavishly" copied its iPhone and iPad and has launched an international legal battle which is expected to hurt growth at one of Samsung's fastest-growing businesses.
Samsung, whose Galaxy gadgets are seen as a major threat to Apple's devices, rejects the claims but has been seeking a quick settlement in Australia so that its new Galaxy 10.1 tablets can be launched there in time for Christmas.
But a lawyer for Apple told the Federal Court in Sydney on Tuesday that Samsung's latest offer, made last week, provided no basis for a settlement and it wanted the court to rule on its claim that the Galaxy's touch-screen technology infringed an Apple patent.
"The main reason we are here is to prevent the launch (of the Galaxy tablet) and maintain the status quo," Apple lawyer Steven Burley told the court.
Now we think that Samsung offer was a very big mistake when you enter a patent rights battle with a company like Apple , this deal proved the weakness of Samsung situation in the case and for sure Apple will make use of this mistake .
