And where exactly did they claim to have invented the tablet?

The tablets that are in use in the movie look closer to Sammy's form factor.... Maybe Sammy could sue (or is it sew?) for an injunction against sale of iPads?

The "tablet" concept had been around long before Apple ever got hold of it.
The challenge for Apple (though) was to make it slim and very functional, which they did a pretty good job of.
The fact Apple is trying to lay claim to "inventing" the tablet (ie, patenting it), is in itself, a very large slice of Science Fiction IMO

Ok, stay with me here, ill type it real slow for ya... ok
I make tv's.... That functions
I make worlds biggest tv.... that functions
U make bigger tv... that functions
I can no longer claim to call my tv... well, the worlds biggest tv.
so... do i sue you now.
no... I go back and think of something else new or make a bigger tv.
It's a stupid reason to sue... bottom line

Samsung is so desperate. I am surprised Samsung attorneys didn't use clay tablets with cuniform as an example of prior art.
Everyone should know that the PC tablet existed almost ten years before the iPad. What Apple did was create a new class of tablets that Samsung blatantly tried to copy. Samsung crossed the line and chose to ignore Apple's private complaints.
Samsung, you reap what you sow.

So two devices that are not the same shape, don't look anything alike side by side, and run different OS's are the same because one company copied the other while designing it's completly different product.
Like saying Filet Mignon and a burger patty are the same because both are round and made of beef. Or a soccer ball and a basketball because both are round and filled with air and made of leather. Like Pam Anderson and Kathy Bates because both have skin, long hair boobs and a coocher. I could go on all night but going home to make my girl squeal

My goodness. So Samsung never heard of the iphone and the ipad. They just stumbled on a 1960's film and then produced their galaxy tab, lol. Samsung's excuses are soooooo lame.
