    The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 isn't the only tablet on Apple's lawsuit radar. Foss Patents unearthed a paragraph from the Samsung complaint which mentions that Apple also filed a complaint against Motorola, related to the design of the Xoom tablet.

    That passage says that Apple filed with the same court (district court of Düsseldorf) a complaint over the design of the Motorola Xoom, but it doesn't state whether that complaint included a request for a preliminary injunction. While it's not stated explicitly, I suppose that the complaint against Motorola also asks the court for an EU-wide injunction — but perhaps just for a permanent injunction without a previous preliminary one.

    Apple also filed a lawsuit against German company Jay-tech, who also manufacture tablets. Moral of the story: they think everyone is stealing from them.[/p]

    Next one on Apple's list:- HTC Flyer.

    Apple needs a dish of STFU and a cold glass of Chill out, it's ridiculous like how Paul Allen from Microsoft sued every tech firm in America for patent infringement.

    But the Xoom and the iPad's GUIs are NOTHING ALIKE. Neither is the hardware. What could they possibly want?

    While they're at it, go file complaints against Blackberry, HTC, Acer and what not because they have tablets too.. Obvious copyright infringement is obvious!

    I'm getting annoyed by Apple.

    I haven't wanted to comment on this situation, but this is just ridiculous. Apple is abusing the law.

    Apparently everything thats a tablet belongs to Apple.
    I think they need to sue mother nature because she mad here apples look A LOT like the apple logo.

    Ridiculous, annoying at least. This has clearly gone out of hand and honestly, if I make an elevator with my OWN designs, I doubt Otis, Schindler, KONE and the rest will come barging in a suing my ass off. But make a tablet, there goes Apple and bangs everyone in the rear with lawsuits..

    GG!

    Well I understood that there are some similarities between the galaxy & the ipad but what the hell is the similarity between the ipad & the xoom. Other than both being tablet I cant see the similarity....

    Apple and their beloved iTunes store, needs a taste of LulzSec, AntiSec and whatever else there is combined.
