As reported by Bloomberg, Apple has obtained an at least temporary injunction against Samsung sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia.  Samsung has agreed to stop advertising the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and to not sell the device until it obtains court approval or the lawsuit is resolved.  Apple has agreed to pay Samsung unspecified damages should Samsung win the related patent lawsuit in Australia. 

Samsung has agreed to provide Apple with samples of the Australian Galaxy Tab 10.1, which Samsung states is different than the U.S. version, for Apple's review prior to distribution.  A hearing is scheduled for August 29, 2011, in Sydney, Australia.

Bloomberg reports Apple will attempt to prevent Samsung from selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in other countries as well.
