Yesterday we told you about Apple offering Samsung a few helpful design tips in order to avoid future lawsuits. Basically, Apple was like "Yeah sure you can continue making tablets, Samsung, so long as they are ugly, fat and filled with crap! Muahahaha!" We wondered what such lovely devices would look like, should Samsung decide to manufacture them, so we sollicited prototypes from readers on our German sister site. The submissions portray tablets that aren't black, flat, slim or sleek whatsoever, as per Apple's suggestions.
This beautiful tablet is both functional and stylish, with a curved body in order to avoid copying Apple's flat screen design (patented since 1901). It's like a large clamshell powder make-up dispenser, but with a keyboard and screen! These are gonna sell like hotcakes. Hotcakes, I tell you!

This triangular tablet is so pointy it will make your eyes bleed just staring at it. But, hey, at least it doesn't slavishly copy Apple's rounded corners — which the company patented along with the original wheel in AD 100!
Who needs a sleek tablet when you can carry around a TV-Android hybrid? It's here, it's fat, get used to it. Yes, that's right: from Paris Hilton to Tori Spelling, Apple has copyrighted everything that's thin, so this is the only option that's left.

All this tablet needs is a few jewels, some animal fur and a new paint job to get clearance from Apple HQ. Here's hoping!
And who could ever forget this tablet, designed by The Office's Dwight? We're sure it will avoid lawsuits with Apple, for various reasons...
