The iPhone was born off the corner of a concept iPad's screen - read the full textThe Apple/Samsung court battle is in its full swing and this week saw Apple's VPs Phil Schiller and Scott Forstall take the stand. Lots of intriguing information came out of their testimonies. To our greatest surprise not only was Apple already working on an iPad prototype when they went about...

it's really not even making sense, if iPhone derives from iPad, how can Samsung's phone be copying iPhone then? it'll be 'copying' a non-existing idea/ platform/ another hardware dimension. Is that so hard to see who's lying here?

if you read steve jobs interview with all thins D, you'll see that steve job used these word for explain how iphone's burn:
we work for ipad screen, and when I see that beautiful screen I said "omg, we can create a phone with this tech"

Useless blabla talking. After n95,Nokia was dead,NO ONE WANTS THEIR SYMBIAN TOUCH regardless their screen technology. i do not care want screen used the first iphone, i do not care AT ALL,ALL I KNOW IS THAT the effect of gestures was incredible for human beens on terra. i repeat,first touchscreen mobiles were in 2004: nokia 7710 and sony ericsson p910, not lg prada!!! BUT APPLE MADE TOUCHSCREENS TOUCHABLE in 2007 with the first iphone with its incredible smooth and human gestures unseen before at nokia 7710: double tap to zoom,zoom with fingers in any direction, slide to unlock and answer,bounce effect,scroll with inertia, inertia wheel for clock settings,smooth contacts flow and many more. beside that internet browser were brilliant and sound through headphones amazing like never before. the applications store becomes reality. APPLE is the king

> In reply to [deleted post]i am not talking about the technology of the screen,i am talking about the gestures that operate the functions of the device on the screen. simple human gestures. mobiles like nokia 7710 make people to NOT WANT TO HAVE touchscreens until iphone was released and than everyone becomes crazy after the cute little ipod touch with gsm inside. forget nokia-is history since 2007. r.i.p.

Samsung coming out looking shady in this court case so far. Hopefully they will think twice next round before copying again.
