Apple has got a ‘smoking gun’ report admitted as evidence in trial

apple vs samsung

AllthingsD has published a report that illustrates the level of ‘evaluation’ Samsung carried out on the iPhone. The  report was prepared by the samsung’s product engineering team in 2010. It provides a feature by feature analysis of the iPhone in comparison to the Samsung’s Galaxy S smartphone.

AllthingsD  reports:

The document evaluates everything from the home screen to the browser to the built in apps on both devices. In each case, it comes up with a recommendation on what Samsung should do going forward and in most cases its answer is simple: Make it work more like the iPhone.
In short, the evaluation report makes the case that the Galaxy (identified here as the “S1″) would be better if it behaved more like the iPhone and featured a similar user interface. And it appears to play directly into Apple’s charge that Samsung “slavishly copied” the iPhone.

Samsung has been trying to make the case that the arrival of powerful capacitive touchscreens pushed the whole industry toward something like the iPhone. This document helps show how one can have a similarly sized slab of glass and still come up short — as Samsung itself concludes it did initially.
Of course, to win its case, Apple will have to prove not just that Samsung made its phones more iPhone-like, but that either it infringed on the specific design and utility patents at issue or that it infringes on specific design elements of the iPhone and iPad — what’s known in legal terms as trade dress.
