Just an hour after the Apple – Samsung injunction was pulled from everywhere but germany, a Dutch website Webwereld.nl has managed to get its hands on a picture that was submitted, and it looks as if it has either been manipulated or altered in some way in order to make the Galaxy Tab 10.1 look more like the Apple device.
Apple’s case in the Dussledorf court that imposed the injunction partly relies, much like a similar action underway in the Netherlands, on online market research stating that 80 per cent of people believe that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the iPad are “identical”, and also picture evidence shown to the judge that they do, indeed, look eerily similar. But wait isn’t the iPad a 4×3 (full frame) device where as the Galaxy tab (just about every other 10 inch tablet) is 16×9 or 16×10 (letterboxed/widescreen). So whats going on? is it possible that apple doctored the photos to help their case? Well i can’t say that and besides wheres the proof (hmmm maybe the picture?!?) But to give Apple the benefit of the doubt lets say maybe its a prototype picture.
in any case heres another picture from webwereld.nl And oh in the words of Ricky Ricardo ”Lucy you got some splainin to do!
