No one is inventing the wheel here, I would not be surprised if archaelogist came one day with evidence of some ancient culture using rectangular with rounded edges shaped cups joined with strings to comunicate...
There are only so many ways to design this type of device. People come to the same conclusions in design, Apple is getting ridiculous.

All smartphones look similar these days.
Apple invented the point, line, circle, air, water, light, even life. and here's revelation: God looks like an apple.
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2012Satio. so obviousSo a phone release in 07 (iPhone) is copying one released in 09 (satio). When you learn how to tell time we can talk again.
it dosnt matter !
all i care is that i have a Galaxy S 3 and it kick all the Icrap phone for the next year......... and it can send files through Bluetooth to the other devices lol
I would say iPhone design inspiration came mainly from Samsung F700 and LG first generation touch screen Prada phone.
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2012Uh no. Samsung already had those phones released, and improved upon those designs. Well if they were released then kindly point me to the GSM arena page for these phones.
Demon Child, 01 Aug 2012I use apple product, but I hate apple for their childish act. Stupid apple patents : slide to ... morethey can be patented indeed!! because before iphone, touchscreens mobiles like nokia 7710 were very bulky and non-intuitive and ugly crowded interface. until iphone,nobody wants touchscreen mobiles. remember that nokia 7710 and sony ericsson p910 have the first touchscreens since 2004,3 years before iphone,but very few wants them. all the gestures from actual mobile phones were seen for the first time on iphone !!! like: slide to unlock and answer,double tap to zoom or zoom with 2 fingers,bounce effect,inertia wheel,sms threads with bubles like in the comics magazinesand many more
shame on you shamesung! their designs are ugly, even their tvs are ugly! I'm no apple fanboy, I don't even have apple products but let's admit it Samsung is really cheap! their phone designs were almost copycats well except for the galaxy nexus! isn't it obvious that they copy the hardware button on the galaxy phone they just make it rectangular in shape to make it look original.
Mark.Fauzi, 01 Aug 2012Please read the news comprehensively. It's clear that Apple's design for iPhone was inspired b... moreWhich concept did they steal? What phone did they copy? Samsung fanboys are clinging to this so hard yet they don't know what it means.
Sams Ung, 01 Aug 2012Only problem is satio came out in 09even though. dude apple sued samsung for copying a 5 years old iphone so same case here. btw we r talking abt the concept shown in the news which didn' come out yet.
I use apple product, but I hate apple for their childish act. Stupid apple patents : slide to unlock, bouncing scroll, kinetic scroll, etc etc. I just wonder how these kind of things could be patented at first place.
Ray, 01 Aug 2012so true. same designOnly problem is satio came out in 09
Lucy Koh is prejudiced. This isn't the first time she has shown bias against Apple and it certainly won't be the last. There is no way that Samsung can hope for a fair trial as long as she is presiding.
btw it is so clear that the judge is biased or else why was she able to accept all that shit from apple in the time when she was so bothered to cthis evidence from samsung.
