SYDNEY - An Australian court slapped a temporary ban on the sale of Samsung Electronics' latest computer tablet in the Australian market on Thursday, handing rival Apple another legal victory in the two firms' global patent war.

The two technology firms have been locked in an acrimonious battle in nine countries involving smartphone and tablet patents since April, with the Australia dispute centering on touch-screen technology.

The Federal Court's decision threatens to sink the viability of Samsung's Galaxy 10.1 tablet in the Australian market, as it is bound to miss the Christmas gift-giving season there, and comes ahead of hearings in the United States, South Korea and the Netherlands.
