Wireless communications device manufacturer Samsung Electronics has announced that it will not promote its new tablet computer at one of the world's largest electronics shows.
This decision was taken after sales of the product were blocked in Germany and Samsung has now confirmed that the new Galaxy Tab 7.7 was pulled out of the IFA electronics fair in Berlin.
Last week, a court granted a request from rival manufacturer Apple to ban Samsung from selling the product in Germany.
"Samsung respects the court's decision... and therefore decided not to display any more the Galaxy Tab 7.7 in the IFA," the company said in a statement, according to AFP news agency.
In the UK, meanwhile, mobile operator Three announced recently that it is to give away 3G broadband to rural areas that are currently experiencing problems with access.
Michael Phillips, product director for Broadbandchoices.co.uk, said he hoped Three will be doing its best to maximise 3G bandwidth in rural areas.
