Apple designer takes the stand, shows off more prototypes
Apple Industrial Designer Christopher Stringer took the stand at the event that has the world tuned in for drama, the Apple v. Samsung District Court trial. Day 2 saw both sides make their opening statements with Apple claiming that Samsung would be using the ole "Devil made me do it" defense while Samsung said that while it competed against the Apple iPhone, it never copied it.
Courtroom sketch of Christopher Stringer's testimony
While on the stand, Stringer testified to an interesting historical note. On the back of one of the many pictured Apple iPhone and Apple iPad prototypes he brought to court (see below) was an iPhone labeled iPod on the back. When asked by the court for the reasoning behind this, Stringer said that either Apple was using that name before settling on using the iPhone moniker, or else it was trying to disguise the true identity of the product.
The trial continues tomorrow.
