Samsung's tablets returned after buyers realized they weren't iPads
In the legal fight between Apple and Samsung, Best Buy told that it was processing Galaxy Tab returns from unhappy customers who thought they were getting an iPad. To prove its words, Best Buy submitted to the court the emails, internal memos and other evidence documents.
It is not yet public knowledge how many of the millions of Galaxy Tab devices Samsung promoted as having "shipped" were actually sold to buyers, and how many of those were subsequently returned when those buyers realized the difference between what they had purchased and what they sold as being identical in form and features to the heavily advertised iPad.
Apple's brief also focused on the overall design of Samsung's products before the iPhone was announced at the beginning of 2007, compared to the designs that began earning it market share and revenue afterward.
The two companies have also filed briefs where Apple brought up comments "famous designers" made to Samsung warning that its Galaxy S "looked like it copied the iPhone too much," and resembled the iPhone design "so as to have no distinguishable elements,” to the point where "all you have to do is cover up the Samsung logo and it’s difficult to find anything different from the iPhone."
