Apple iPad Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 comparison

Earlier this month we saw a German court award Apple an injunction against Samsung and the Galaxy Tab 10.1, blocking sales of the Android-powered tablet across most of Europe. The basis of the suit revolved around Apple's claim that the Tab 10.1 infringed on the iPad's design, but today it was revealed that the images of the Tab 10.1 used by Apple in its claim may have been inaccurate. As you can see in the image above, posted by Dutch site Webwereld.nl, the image used by Apple shows a Galaxy Tab 10.1 with an aspect ratio of 1.36 compared with the iPad and its 1.30 aspect ratio. However, the official Tab 10.1's aspect ratio measures out to 1.46.

It's not clear whether Apple intentionally altered the image of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 or if it used an outdated photo of Samsung's slate. Whatever the explanation, though, this news is something that could definitely hurt Apple's case considering that its argument is based on the claim that the Tab 10.1 is "practically identical" to the iPad in terms of appearance. We should hear more about the case and possible implications of this incorrect Tab 10.1 image during the hearing that's scheduled for August 25th, so stay tuned.
