Legal In order to not overwhelm OSNews with even more legal news, I didn't report on the recent developments in Apple v. Samsung until we had some more stuff to consolidate. Well, since the goings been getting good lately there, let's talk about it. Samsung was ordered to hand over a slew of unreleased products and materials to Apple, and now, Samsung, for its part, has demanded that Apple hands over the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 to Samsung. If they exist. This is gettin' good.

One of these 'unreleased' products is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 which was given away to thousand of people at Google IO.

It's by no means a secret product.

It's just not released and so Apple cannot legally obtain one and present it as a piece of evidence to support their litigation.

Then Apple can have one brought into open court.

There is no need to have a separate disclosure meeting that includes other products.

Debating the merits of this complain in open court, especially as Apple is likely to seek a preliminary injunction, is not practical. It's going to be a matter of dueling documents (as most commercial litigation).

Remember, as the judge said, their trying to establish if the Samsung products are so similar that they are likely to cause consumer confusion.
