Samsung Electronics Co. this week pulled the new Galaxy Tab 7.7 from the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin after Apple Inc. won a second injunction to block Galaxy Tab sales in Germany.

A Samsung representative this week confirmed to Bloomberg that a Dusseldorf Court granted Apple’s request to ban sales and marketing of the Galaxy Tab

Apple in Apr. filed suit against Samsung claiming their devices copied the iPad and iPhone products. Samsung has countersued in select countries.

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 will include a 7.7-inch Super AMOLED 1280 x 800 display, 1.4 Ghz Dual-Core CPU, TouchWiz UX interface, HSPA+ functionality, Wi-Fi, and a 5,100 mAh battery for up to 10 hours of video playback.

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 will be sold in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB SKUs. A U.S. release is to be determined.

The Galaxy Note will include a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED 1280 x 800 display, 1GB RAM, 8MP HD camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and either 16GB or 32GB storage.

The Galaxy Note will feature the S pen to facilitate stylus functionality with built-in applications.

Pricing and availability is to be determined.

Current competitors in the tablet space include Apple Inc.’s iPad, Acer Inc.’s Iconia and Transformer SKUs, Samsung Group’s Galaxy Tab, and Motorola Mobility Inc.’s XOOM.
