    Samsung won: Because it is NOT "as cool as iPad"

    Judge Colin Briss announced his decision in London today. In the case of The Samsung Galaxy tab, under serious patent-assault from Apple, where he ruled that the Android tablet does not infringe on Apple's characteristic iPad design. Because the judge decided the Samsung Galaxy Tab just isn't "as cool"as its competitor.

    According to Briss, the Galaxy Tabs just "do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design," and therefore, "They are not as cool."

    Describing Apple's tablet, high court judge Colin Birss cooed over the iPad's "striking" design, calling it "an object the informed user would want to pick up and hold." Briss noted that the "cool design" is "understated, smooth and simple".

    While the two tablets are "very, very similar" when viewed from the front (the judge noted that the Tab uses the "very same screen, with a flat glass plate out to a very thin rim and a plain border under the glass," as the iPad), they are quite different from the rear.

    The judge noted the "unusual details on the back". While the back of an iPad shows little more than the iconic Apple logo, the Galaxy tab has texture, lots of writing, a logo for the network provider and, on some models, a chunky lip for the lap.

    The Samsung tablets "do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design," the judge ruled. "They are not as cool. The overall impression produced is different."

    Therefore, it's an uncomfortable victory for Samsung. While the judge ruled that Samsung's product does not infringe upon Apple's registered design, the Galaxy Tab will forever be rendered the "uncool" tablet. Apple has 21 days to appeal the verdict.

    If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation
