A recent decision handed down by a German court upheld an earlier decision to ban the sale of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the country, but a loophole in how the tablet is distributed may allow for retailers to continue stocking the Android Honeycomb slate. A technicality in the law not only allows for the remaining stock of Galaxy Tab 10.1 units to be sold off, but also for ordering new units from Samsung.
The catch is retailers must circumvent ordering their supply directly from Samsung Germany. Routing orders through another branch of Sammy’s distribution chain would allow for the replenishment of Galaxy Tab stock, but it is unclear if stores such as Media Markt, a popular electronics shop in the Netherlands and Germany, will take advantage. Regardless, it sounds like those who really want to get their hands on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will still have the opportunity to do so.
