Samsung tablet image said to be closer to iPad than in reality

A Dutch magazine has found that Apple manipulated images in the firm's successful application to a German court to have Samsung's competing Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned from sale in the EU.

Apple's complaint centred not on hardware patents but rather the 'look and feel' of the tablet which the complaint pictured side-by-side with the iPad alleging that the Android tablet was virtually identical to the market leader.

Webwereld quoted a 'bewildered' IP specialist attorney Arnout Groen as calling the Apple move a 'blunder', adding that the image manipulation could 'hardly be a coincidence.'
