Legal Dutch news website 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.

No idea. But if I go here, there's clearly the logo:

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.

I wasn't able to find a single picture on the net for Samsung without logo, including live visit of my local gadget shop. It was there, the logo.

Now, I still can't be sure who's right or who's wrong, but I'm getting sick and tired of hearing about patents, laws, court cases, etc.

Instead, I want to be able to like the actual product, but honestly, they all look the same to me? Same shape, same black border, same home screen, same way of arranging icons, there's an OS beneath, working with some apps ...
But, behold - it's the same with refrigerators, TV, vacuum cleaners, phones, screen projectors, etc? What's going on, really, what's wrong?

Earning money and dominating the stock exchange through court cases, patents and other legal tricks, or actually listen to your customers and fighting for them?
This isn't an Apple rant - it's a general one.
Again, stop the court cases - it's extremely annoying.

EDIT: I promised to myself a while ago not to login again here, as there's a lot of Apple vs. Android trolls, and it was very boring, but this really pissed me off. Logging off again.

I have a galaxy tab II in my hands: no logo. My guess is that it is on the plastic cover that the device comes with. I haven't gotten it out of the box myself, so I can't be positive.
