    Default Samsung Lawyers Unable to Identify Galaxy Tab When Asked By Judge During Court Hearing



    Samsung attorney Kate Sullivan when asked by U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh if she could tell which one of the two tablets the judge held above her head was the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Sullivan responded “Not at this distance, your honor.”

    That distance was a measly 10 feet! Facepalm, facepalm, facepalm.

    How can Samsung’s lawyers, who have been battling Apple in patent cases across the world, not be able to tell the difference between an iPad 2 and their Galaxy Tablet when prompted to do so in court. I don’t care if its 10 feet, 20 feet, or across the court room these lawyers should be able to spot their tablets in a lineup faster than a kid spots Waldo in an empty room.

    The judge then asked the rest of Samsung’s legal team if any of them could tell which tablet displayed was Apple’s and which one was Samsung’s, only then did one of Samsung’s lawyers supply the right answer.

    Judge Koh decided that Samsung’s Galaxy-branded tablets do infringe on some of Apple’s tablets, but Apple must still prove that their patents are valid under the law before she could grant Apple an injunction. Koh wrote that she wouldn’t grant the injunction based on the “utility” patent Apple claims Samsung is infringing upon, but she is still considering three other design patents.

    If Samsung’s lawyer’s inability to identify the tablet from 10 feet away is any indication of how Koh might rule the case, Samsung better start planning a redesign if they want to sell their tablets in the U.S.

    Well, it could be read that the lady is trying to point out that the Tab and iPad are "virtually indistinguishable", essentially putting on a show for the court, albeit, in a very odd way.I mean, they're trying to prove that Apple is infringing on their patents, right? So what's to keep their lawyers from playing coy and pretend to not be able to tell a Tab apart from an iPad?

    Well maybe Samsuck shouldn't rip of the iPad 2 design with a black border and metal silver frame.Seriously, if Apple released an all silver tablet so would Samsuck.

    In my opinion, Galaxy Tab and Xoom are better products. Apple should out design their competitors, not sue them once they notice a threat to their market share. This silly litigious strategy stymies technology, prevents consumers from accessing good products and allows the second best to reign supreme. I'm pointing my finger at all the big players here, patent law is getting out of hand and us consumers have to pick up the tab for expensive lawsuits whilst purchasing a less competitive range of products. All these companies should nut up.

    10.1 = 10.1 inch display iPad2 = 9.7 inch display
    10.1 = 1280x800 resolution iPad2 = 1024x768
    10.1 = rear camera flash iPad2 = NO camera flash
    10.1 = 256.6x172.9x8.6 iPad2 = 241.2x185.7x8.8
    10.1 = 595g iPad2 = 601g

    Dude, calm down. Samsung is a bit stupid if they can't even identify their own device. 10 feet is not far away. At all.

    8GB iPod Touch 1G: 1.1.1 > 1.1.2 > 1.2 > 2.0 > 2.0.1 > 2.1 > 2.2 > 2.2.1 > 3.0 > 3.0.1 GM RedSn0wed
    16GB iPhone 3G > Sold $375 > iPhone 4: 4.2.8 > 5.0
    32GB iPad: 3.2 > 3.2.1 > Traded For MacBook > Traded + $500 For MacBook Pro

    Apple is trying to prove that Samsung copied their design, so the lawyers for Samsung wouldn't act like they couldn't tell a difference, they want to prove there is a distinguishable difference between the two and that Samsung didn't copy Apples design.

    really cant see from 10ft. Then they shouldn't be allowed to drive either if you can't see within 10 feet.

    This whole thing is complete BS. Who the hell cares if you can't tell the difference 10 to 20 feet away. It runs a completely different OS/iOS and it's different hardware also. Do you see Ford/Chevy/Toyota crying about how a certain vehicle may look alike or any other companies? The fact is Apple doesn't like competition and someone made a compete-able tablet so what's Apple do? They do what they do best and that's sue.

    Looks like Samsung should look into getting a better Lawyer.
