    In a way I could see how ppl would confuse the Samsung tablet for an apple iPad. Mostly parents cause most parents don't know much when it comes down to the tech world and am sure they have kids that brag and brag how much they want the iPad and so those parents go out and buy a tablet not knowing there's different brands or think hey iPad is a tablet there's a tablet on display ok I want that one.. Get home here kids only to find out by there angry spoiled kids that it isn't an iPad.

    I know cause my uncle done this a few times with different product and so now he calls me to help him out every time he wants to buy them something.

    My complaint about all this is what about the OTHER branded tablets that look MORE like an iPad than a Galaxy Tab does? You dont see Apple suing Asus or Acer or anyone else only Samsung.
    My reasoning behind this is the Galaxy Tab is actually better than the iPad and Apple dont like that so they sue instead of making the iPad better. Remove the competition instead of making a better product.
    Best point here.....

    Hes right though. This argument is just becoming stupid. Unfortunately, consumers are the morons.

    EXACTLY.
    There are many differences between the two and only a MORON will get them confused.
    1, the boxes 1 says APPLE the other says SAMSUNG.
    2, the shape. One is square (4:3) the other is rectangle (16:9)
    3, the OS. One is IOS the other is Android. They both look different.
    4, one has a button at the bottom, the other doesn't
    5, one is an iPad the other is a Galaxy Tab
    6, Smart people know the difference, lawyers and judges don't.
    Here is only 6 valid reasons why you cant get the two confused.

    What about the banning if the Galaxy Tab 7.7? 1 is 10.1 inch the other is 7.7 inch. again 2 different shapes and sizes so HOW did that get banned not even being the same size? They look completely different. The only thing the same is they are tablets and have a screen. Whats next, Apple get the Samsung TV's banned coz they also have a screen and they say SAMSUNG on it? Oh we have to wait for the Apple TV to get released first THEN they will sue them for having a Samsung TV.
    Years huh, they were only released 13 months apart. Educate yourself

    That's the point exactly.
    Apple spent thousands on developing a radically different phone.
    Samsung with out spending a dollar just copied it.

    The issue is parent, uncles, aunts and grandfathers, and other relations arent tech savvy. The number of times my kids come home with a terrible story about some kids in the class relation bought the wrong item. The kid next door went with dad to get an iphone. Store owner just wants a sale. When the dad see the cost and store owner thinks loosing the deal, they say what about this one its identical but cheaper. Parent look at it compares samsung to iphone and 100% of the time says "there's no difference, why do you want this one"

    Thats the two issues right there. Samsung should spend its own money on research its phones where horrific compared to the iphone, they looked like blackberrys for goodness sake, you knew that, I knew that, the dogs in the street knew that, sales were going down the pan. So make an identical copy, spend no money and hey guess what were making millions with no R&D.

    Can't see how no one can see this

    Apple has this case in their pocket, it's just a matter of time now. Samsung knows what they've done and don't seem to really care. They just wanted to make money off better devices real quick so they copied from Apple. Hopefully this will teach them to innovate more.

    >JailBreak is better than root.
    LOL, they are the same exact thing.... just a different name, both are just exploits that give you root access. You also come of as a apple fanboy...

    This lawsuit is just plain retarded. So what if two devices share the same shape, like wtf, should the tab be a hexagon instead of a rectangle now.

    if anyone here came up with an idea and started making $, and I saw your idea and made one extremely similar like a year later, you'd come after me. because apple is a billion $ company, they should ease off?

    Nah if i wasn't techy, i wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Not everyone cares about cellphones and tables and computers, some people just have them because they need them, not because it has this or that. Saying that, I dont think my parents are stupid enough to walk out of a store with Samsung written on teh side thinking they jus got an ipad. I personally see a lot in common. If your truely designing a product from scratch, it wouldnt look like anyone elses, unless you both think the same, which i highly doubt. Saying that, I do believe this looks like a photocopy of the ipad then photoshoped to look a little different.

    Who in the **** can't see on the box that the tablet says Samsung? When people buy these products, they come in boxes so it pretty obvious to the consumer that it's not a ******* iPad. Now if you was buying these products without a box then I would give some doubt but to say that people can't tell the difference between the two when they come in boxes just shows how dumb we really are.

    Who the *** cares, you got your iPads right.. So just stop arguing..

    The iPad 1 has been released ages ago.. Who would want to buy an iPad 1 now.. The box, and display, specs at the store explain everything, unless you go to the store with a blindfold..

    ok..to be honest if you are not in tech or don't watch tv, I can understand how you may get confused. Thats about it! If you actually live in 2012 and don't know the difference between these tablets(FILL IN THE BLANKS) So, if that's the facts(title of this article) should be cased closed Apple wins. That is all for now haha!

    You realize that this information came from Samsung themselves, right?

    No joke. How would he like it if a geologist called him an idiot because he can't tell the difference between amphibole hornblende and augite!

    I always wonder if people realize they are talking about themselves as well when they say things like "consumers are idiots."

    True, but there still is little excuse for not actually checking over the product on display, the information tag near the product as well as the box it comes in (if in a physical store), or the information for the listing (if browsing online.) Anyone who does so shouldn't be confused at all.
