Legal hurdles continue to cause headaches for Samsung as the company announces an extended delay for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet launch in Australia.

Samsung said Monday that it has agreed to the launch postponement at least until September 26th, when the Australian court is finally expected to deliver its verdict on the matter.

The South Korean company isn’t giving up, of course, as it determined to punish Apple for doctoring evidence and violating a number of Samsung’s own patents as well. The company gave this statement to Reuters:

Today, Samsung informed the Federal Court of Australia it intends to file a cross claim against Apple Australia and Apple Inc regarding the invalidity of the patents reviously asserted by Apple and also a cross claim against Apple regarding violation of patents held by Samsung by selling its iPhones and iPads.”

Earlier this month, Samsung was obstructed from launching its 10.1-inch tablet in Australia due to patent lawsuits from Apple. The scheduled hearing was then set for August 29th.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 was also recently banned in Germany, although a ruling is currently scheduled on September 9th. Apple is attacking the Galaxy Tab maker in all legal fronts for its supposed likeliness to iPhones and iPads.
