The headlines Friday morning were that Samsung had offered Apple (AAPL) a deal that would resolve the patent dispute that has prevented the Korean company from selling its Galaxy 10.1 tablet in Australia.

The excellent courtroom reporting that the Wall Street Journal‘s David Fickling and Ross Kelly have been providing for the past two days suggest that a deal is not what Apple is looking for. You can catch up with Fickling and Kelly’s live blogs here.

The highly technical and occasionally amusing sessions ended Friday afternoon Australian time because the judge had to attend a moot trial with law students. Court will resume 10:15 a.m. local time Tuesday.

All delays work in Apple’s favor as customers Down Under keep snapping up iPads without having to consider Samsung’s competing tablet.
