Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N: The “N” Stands For “Neener Neener”

With the holiday shopping season fast approaching and its intellectual property battle with Apple raging on, Samsung is tweaking the design of its Galaxy Tab tablet in the hope of slipping past a German injuction barring the sale of the original. It’s created a new version of the device.

Dubbed the Galaxy Tab 10.1N, this tablet features a much more pronounced metal border that extends further over the edges of its screen. Far enough, presumably, to distinguish its form factor from the Community Designs infringements Apple has asserted against it.

So now it looks a tad less like an iPad 2 (and a tad more like the original iPad). Question is, will that one adjustment make the design of the 10.1N distinctive enough to persuade a court that it’s no longer substantially similar to the iPad?

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
