    Samsung Removes Anymode Brand "Smart Case" Accessory From Store Amidst Controversy


    Recently, Samsung briefly had a new accessory on their site designed specifically for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. It's called the "Smart Case" from Anymode, and the controversy surrounding it stems from the fact that it looks like an obvious "knock-off" of a very similar product for the Apple iPad2, called the "Smart Cover." Samsung immediately pulled the accessory from their website and issued a statement regarding it. They indicated that the accessory never received official "Designed for Samsung Mobile" certification, and that they were "working with Anymode to address this oversight." They also shared that none of the cases had actually been sold.

    Does it seem like they are having an almost paranoid, "knee-jerk" reaction to this because of all their legal fights with Apple? It's hard to blame them... it was probably a wise reaction. Check out the pic above for an idea of what the folding case looks like.

    Apple didn't invent the smart cover. They "borrowed" the idea from Incase. Samsung isn't some small mom and pop business that can be pushed around which I think is great. It is odd to me that they are seemingly emulating Apple in every way, but if you think about it, it makes sense. Samsung has been catering Apple products so they know the ins and outs of the technology. The only difference being that Samsungs technolgy is a step ahead of Apple's.
