Recently Released Internal Samsung Report Heavily Favors Apple's Claims
While the Apple vs. Samsung patent infringement trial continues, a major piece of evidence in Apple’s favor has recently surfaced. The evidence is a 132-page internal Samsung report discussing why the Galaxy line of smartphones (in the case of the document, the S1) should behave more like an iPhone and feature a similar user interface.
For those of you who didn’t already know, the basis of Apple’s case against Samsung is the fact that the Cupertino California company believes that after the debut of the iPhone in 2007, Samsung’s smartphone design drastically changed into designs that closely mirrored that of Apple’s iPhone. This new piece of evidence support’s Apple’s claims directly as it seems to evaluate the Galaxy phone’s hardware and software components against that of the iPhone. According to a summary by AllThingsD:
In short, the document makes the case that the Galaxy (identified as the “S1″ in this document) would be better if it behaved more like the iPhone and featured a similar user interface.

Apple officially won this case. Apple wanted to prove that samsung was copying their products and they just proved it. Although im not suprised because when i first saw the galaxy tab i seriously though it was an ipad. Before the add said Samsung galaxy tab.
This is great.

Apples stuff is great. I have an iPhone4 and iPad3. Not thinking of changing any time soon, but if another company makes something great - id be happy to jump ship in a heart beat. People who dedicate themselves to company's and buy whatever they sell (ie 'fanboys'), are not only sheep, but mindless drones. I hope for all that is good, that Samsung win this case, and every appeal apple throws at the courts.

Wow! 132 pages of wow! I wish I was there to watch the trial Honestly with documentation like this, Samsung will have a hard time. Only time will tell what the judge/jury thinks.

Samsung is stupid for copying Apple in the first [lace. It eventually catches up to you no matter what, and that time is now for Samsung apparently. Apple is so aggressive with patents, I'm shocked Samsung was stupid enough to try and copy Apple.

Bet u were hoping that document was never found!

Anyway....Samsung has clearly copied Apple and it's only a matter of time before they take this case.

I think that Apple winning this case is actually 'better' for technology! It will force companies to create new ideas instead of mimicking what's been done. Im not saying that I want Apple to win (I could care less) but how can we progress if everything stayed/looked the same???

^^True Indeed^^ Now let's listen to all the whiners that were against Apple and the patent law-suits that have come about. I'm sure this have to bring a different meaning to the reason why the law-suits are in place in the first place and expresses Samsungs's true innovation right?!?!? Lol

Still waiting for more anti apple members of mmi (The Premier Community For Modding Your APPLE Idevice) to start complaining "OMG crApple is so unfair, They want to protect their designs and its not fair". Where is PokemonDesigner?

Firstly you are promoting the idea of copying ideas, how is that better for technology? So instead of companies actually being innovative they should just copy each other? Is that actually moving the tech area forward? Look at the past, Apple actually does what they want regardless of other companies. They brought us the iPod when no one else had vision. The iPad...the list continues really...
You say the fanboys are mindless drones? I actually think the companies that can't actually think of their own ideas are mindless drones, designing replica devices. Companies like that can't advance technology themselves so they copy. Seems pretty mindless to me. Why doesn't the likes of Samsung actually design something that is so left field that it challenges Apple beyond what they offer currently?
I think you underestimate Apple with respect to not providing revolutionary features to their devices. What's the bet when the new iPhone is released the next Samsung phone will no doubt feature the same or slightly varied technology in it???or if Apple wins this case Samsung might actually have to think above and beyond what it actually does? e.g not being mindless...
Lastly if Apple were to lose this case I think it is then we will stop seeing revolutionary features on new products, because what is the point when companies will simply imitate instead of innovating.
At the end of the day it's not about what's fair...it's about what's right!

Guy At Party: Oh, okay... But h-how will I know when its the right moment?
Girl At Party: Oh don't worry, you'll know.
