Last month, reports about Samsung making desperate attempts to slid out of its legal tangle with Apple in Germany, began doing rounds. Samsung revealed that they had tweaked the frame design of their Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, alongwith the speaker placement and the model number from Galaxy Tab 10.1 to Galaxy Tab 10.1 N, to evade the ban.
