Google Asked Samsung Not To Copy Apple

Another detail from the massive court case

So in this massive legal battle between Samsung's Android-powered devices and Apple's products fall in the wheelhouse of Android creator Google? Let's find out.

In the ever-growing legal dispute between Samsung and Apple, an email has come to light in which it was revealed that Google pressed Samsung not to create a device that resembled the iPad too closely.

"Since it is too similar to Apple, make it noticeably different starting with the front side," the email reads.

It was sent between Samsung employees, and reference comments made by Google executives during a closed-door meeting.

It's just one of many stories coming to light as the result of the huge patent lawsuit between Apple and Samsung. It's extremely rare for cases like this to go to trial, and one of the most important reasons is because all the evidence that is not incredibly sensitive becomes part of the public record.

Apple has accused Samsung of violating its patents through more than 20 products, most notably the Galaxy Tab and its similarity to the iPad, and the Galaxy Nexus's striking resemblance to the iPhone.
