Galaxy Tab case tweaked to evade Germany ban

Plus, details on the Nook and tablets in healthcare

Galaxy Tab case tweaked to evade Germany ban On The Register, Bill Ray reports on the case. “Samsung isn’t allowed to sell the Tab 10.1 as a German court decided it infringes Apple’s Community Design patent, and thus the products could be confused. So now Samsung has wrapped the bezel round the front, moved the speakers and put its tablet back onto the shelves to see how Apple (and the courts) react,” he writes. What’s your opinion?

Tablets taking hold in healthcare vertical On The VAR Guy, the author reports on a study by CompTIA. “With all that mobile love comes the need for mobile security and, with healthcare, mobile electronic medical records (EMR) management that requires both protection and privacy compliance in addition to accessibility. That’s prime channel potential right there,” he writes. What’s your opinion?

Nook Tablet reserves only 1GB of space for non-B&N content On ZDNet, Rachel King reports on the tablet. “To B&N’s credit, there’s a lot that a user could potentially consume from B&N’s digital stores alone. Apps can sometimes take up to several hundred megabytes of space or more, and many children’s books (one area where B&N really beats the competition right now) are deeply interactive with audio, video and animation — thus taking up huge amounts of space. The same goes for some other B&N titles, notably cookbooks,” she writes. What’s your opinion?
