Samsung has finally been given the go-ahead to start selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 device in Australia after a court denied Apple's request to hear an appeal attempting to reinstate its initial ban.
The South Korean firm won a challenge against the ban on 30 November and was set to start selling the device on 2 December, but Apple successfully secured a week's extension of the ban until 9 December.
This was ostensibly to give it the opportunity to prepare its case to try to overturn this decision but also hurt Samsung's attempt to sell the device in the final few weeks before Christmas.
Now, though, Samsung can begin selling the device after the judges ruled against Apple's claim, according to widespread reports.
V3 contacted Apple and Samsung for comment but had received no reply at the time of publication.
The victory for Samsung is a welcome boost after it lost its attempts at having Apple's iPhone 4S temporarily banned from sale in France. A French judge ruled Samsung's claims were "disproportionate" and ordered the firm to pay legal fees to Apple of €100,000.
Apple recently lost a case in the US attempting to have several Samsung products banned from sale as the two firms continue to battle each other in the courts in several locations.
