Apple accused of doctoring Galaxy Tab image in legal case

Apple vs. Samsung legal dispute ramps up following Galaxy Tab 10.1 ban

Apple used a falsified image of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the court case that saw the Korean tablet banned from European markets, new reports have claimed.

Having examined the images used by Apple in the recent legal case, Dutch website Webwereld.nl found that an image of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 alongside the iPad 2 had been doctored to make the two devices appear to have the same dimension ratios and thus appear more like the Apple tablet.

The new reports come a week after Samsung saw its newly launch Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned from sale across Europe, apart from the Netherlands, after it was deemed the device had mimicked the iPad encroaching on patents and intellectual property held by Apple.

"Apple and its lawyers have, perhaps inadvertently, misled the judge of a Düsseldorf court by filing flawed evidence of the similarity between the iPad 2 and Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets based on an inaccurate picture,” Webwereld’s report claims.

Following the ban an official statement from Samsung said it was “disappointed with the court’s decision” and that it would continue to fight the ban.

Is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 a serious competitor to Apple’s market dominating iPad 2? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
