Trial reveals Apple admired rival Samsung's 7-inch Galaxy and commented "we should do one." Samsung hopes judge will see Apple wants to replicate rivals.
Apple considered developing a car or a camera after seeing the iPod's success, and in early 2011 one of its top executives recommended making a 7-inch iPad.
Judge Koh rules that Samsung didn't make it clear in the preliminary injunction stage that the company wanted to cite the prop as evidence against Apple's patent.
The iPad has boosted Apple back to the top of the market, helping the company achieve an estimated 19 per cent share of worldwide PC shipments.
