Samsung Beats Apple in UK Galaxy Tab Suit

Posted by at 10:53 am on July 9, 2012

Samsung has won against Apple in a UK intellectual property case over the design of the Galaxy Tab. Judge Colin Birss of the High Court of Justice has ruled that consumers are unlikely to confuse the Galaxy Tab and the iPad, going so far as to call former “not as cool” as Apple’s design.

In the ruling, Birss explains that Galaxy tablets “do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design.” The Galaxy Tab has also been found to be thinner and have “unusual details” on the back, contributing to differences with the iPad. Apple has been given 21 days to appeal the decision.
