“Samsung Electronics won a legal ruling after a U.K. judge said its Galaxy tablets aren’t “cool” enough to be confused with the Apple  iPad. ” Judge Colin Birss said today in London in a court fight between Samsung and Apple that consumers aren’t likely to get the tablet computers mixed up, he said that the Galaxy tablets “do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design,” “They are not as cool.”.

Samsung said the judgment affirms its position that the Galaxy doesn’t infringe Apple’s design rights.

“Should Apple continue to make excessive legal claims in other countries based on such generic designs, innovation in the industry could be harmed and consumer choice unduly limited,” Suwon, South Korea-based Samsung said in an e-mailed statement.
