As usual, apple steals other companies ideas and passes it off as its own and calls it an innovation.

Wont be too long before samsung sue them over this.

It is clear that Samsung was somehow aware of all this antenna thing and all threats about banning new iPhone wasn't just PR barking of giant companies(which is common these days).
all in all if this is going to happen, Apple will regret for entering a battle with endless army of droids.

Patents are retarded, however I hope Apple burns for starting the war though.

Nokia invented the widgetbased touchscreen OS that is today called iOS, Android, Bada, Blackerry OS and so on.

This is a Nokia touchscreen phone from 2004.

Samsung is so scared, they know iPhone going to easily outsell samsung phones and they don't like that. They only opportunity is make these huges phones and believe that those are going to sell well. They know that they cant beat the original in it's own area where iPhone shines. They need to do something else and they choose for make phones HUGE and cheap looking/feeling.

Wonder when they understand that they cant beat iPad in it's own area, they need to think something new and different not copying the original because original always going to sell more.

Its same if you are good singer and you try to be someone else and trying to do imitation copy from great original singer, that's not take you far, but when making the song sound like you and make it your own that's something.

I've watched one Apple keynote, and being a nerd every time an "innovation" is described I shake my head because I've seen it, or heard about it, before - soemtimes years before. The fact that Apple executes tech better than practically anybody doesn't alter the fact that there is precious little (technically) that they've actually invented.

Design and UI innovation is pretty much the only thing that Apple hasn't copied from someone, somehow. Mostly they'd get permission, but sometimes they try to slip one past.

Even today 99% of iPhone 4 users claim there was no antenna problem. Ridiculous.

And don't even get started on whats going on in Australia, Apple is trying to ban competition altogether...

Maybe iPhones and Galaxy series should all be banned, so that people buy Nokia and Sony Ericsson instead.
