Seems Apple is getting hit left and right now adays. First it gets some bad PR for not being so Green anymore. After that it gets fined for up selling its AppleCare instead of offering the standard two year warranty. Now Samsung has won its fight with Apple in the UK by not being so cool.

A UK judge in the High Court of Justice’s Chancery Division has ruled that Samsung’s Galaxy tab did not infringe on Apple’s iPad. The reason for this win for Samsung sounds more like a lost. The judge said that the Galaxy Tab was just not as well designed as Apple’s iPad.

Judge Colin Biriss said that Galaxy Tabs “do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design and that they are not as cool.”

However he did also say that The court did find that there were similarities in the design. The judge said that “the view from the front is really very striking. The Galaxy tablets are not identical to the Apple design but they are very, very similar in this respect.”
