Legal Dutch news website WebWereld.nl investigated the claim that Apple supplied the German court with tampered evidence, and their research is pretty self-explanatory. I don't have the time to translate the article for you, but the images speak about ten thousands words; Apple has changed the aspect ratio of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in a side-by-side comparison (while also showing Android's application drawer open instead of showing the home screen, but the article doesn't mention that). Come on, Apple. Update: As Gusar notes, Apple also Photoshopped the Samsung logo off the bezel. Real classy, Apple.

They also removed the "Samsung" logo from the bezel.

And the open app-drawer thing is an old trick, used already with Galaxy S vs. iPhone comparisons.

No idea. But if I go here, there's clearly the logo: http://www.amazon.de/Samsung-Touchscreen-Android-interner-Speicher/...

So what's going on here? Are the official pics wrong? Or are the official pics correct and Engadget as well as Apple are using pre-release models which didn't have the logo?

Whatever the case with the logo, the pic in Apple's evidence is clearly 'shopped, that doesn't change. And all the other photographs are using what Neolander describes a few comments up: clever angles to make the Tab appear more similar to the iPad. When they're side-by-side on page 39, the different aspects are very clear. As I'm sure they would be if you saw the thing yourself in real life.
