This means Samsung can have their Galaxy Tab 10.1 on Australian retailer shelves before Christmas. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 16GB Wi-Fi only model will start at $579, and the 32GB model with 3G built-in will go for $729.

 

Below is a statement from Samsung:

 

As the High Court has today rejected Apple's leave to appeal, Samsung Electronics Australia is pleased to announce the highly anticipated Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 will be available in stores in time for the Christmas shopping period from a RRP of $579 (16GB WiFi variant) and a RRP of $729 (16GB 3G variant).

 

Samsung Electronics Australia is pleased with today's judgment by the High Court of Australia to deny Apple's request to appeal the decision of the Full Court.

 

The Full 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.
