Legal "In its case against Samsung Electronics in the Netherlands, Apple is demanding an extensive ban on all Galaxy series smartphones and tablets, including a complete recall of stock by European distributors and resellers. Apple's complaint against Samsung in The Hague district court is much more comprehensive than previously thought. It's not only broader in its legal scope than a separate, ongoing Apple complaint against Samsung in Germany, but an injunction could have a 'huge impact' on the entire European market for smartphones and tablets, according to Alastair Edwards, principal analyst at Canalys." That's how far Apple is willing to go. They are willing to screw over countless resellers - some big, some small, one-shop affairs - because they don't like competition. I wonder how the Grubers of this world are going to spin this one. Hey Steve, I've got another extremely successful Android phone maker for you to sue.

I checked those tablets and the Penpoint and DynaBook don't look like an iPad at all. The Archos a little bit, while the Knight Rider comes pretty close.

The current generation of Android tablets are pretty close to near identical to the iPad.

I don't know what your thinking off, but I'm referring only to the exterior look of the tablet. The iPad obviously caused other vendors to create tablets and model them after the iPad. Your list shows there are more ways to design a tablet, which most vendors didn't do save for some who came up with a tablet/netbook hybrid.

I'm not aware that every Apple device owner thinks Apple invented the tablet or its look, I guess they all do think Apple brought this market to live.

... while the Knight Rider comes pretty close.

Correction, the iPad is a clone / copy / fake of the Knight Ridder. :-) Remember the Knight Ridder came 17 year before the iPad.
