is this true? its absolutely rediculous!!! in that case, why arnt Apple suing Sony Ericsson, HTC or Nokia? who all have phones similar to the iphone too!! i think their just scared with the release of the new Samsung Galaxy S 2 coming up!! Funny how apple had nowt to say before now???!!!
The main thing I never liked galaxy S. It just looks like iOS to much somehow. And dont get me wrong hardwarevise is still a great phone and Im not an iphone fan either(if I got iphone 4 I would sell it in a second). but I support the firms like HTC or Motorola that make the menu that way its clear at a first glance what brand it is. SE is doing that to but im against SE since X2 and its disgracefull software state they left it at. It could be a decent comunicator but instead at relese it was just a €500 beta state WM6.5 phone with a great qwerty and it still is after a couple of firmware upgrades.
yeah samsung galaxy ace for example, its look alike iphone 3g/3gs.... and the UI is almost identical...
apple is wasting its time...... We all know the partner in the 3gs is samsung they built most of the phone including some of the os (if i can recall) samsung waited to release their first smartphone called the galaxy s which was a big hit and now because android is taking over and is getting more popular they needed to get back ontop.... Well done apple for loosing more customers because it took you guys quite a long time to figure that one out... Anyway technically isnt the 3gs a samsung with an apple logo....so basically they've bought something that isnt their's and slapped their logo onto it
I think it should be done ages ago. But it is a good lesson for cheaters. Samsung make your own design and get rid of cheap plastic stuff :)
man reading this article makes me to buy SGS2 even more !! i see how apple is urgent on their iphone5 project...i guess they are doing this cuz SGS2 is greater thn iphone5
As they say any publicity is good publicity.
frankly speaking i was not expecting this move from apple.
now i feel apple is getting insecured n frustrated about the samsung galaxy family sales n playing such cheap tricks to stop sgs2 release as this beast is gonna hang iphone TILL DEATH....
Apple is probably suing just to expose Samsung for the copycats that they are. Probably not worried at all about winning or losing the actual case, just good that headlines will include the words Samsung and Copy in the same sentence.
Unfortunately this copying culture is quite strong in Korea, from cars that are almost blatant ripoffs of Mercedes and Audi, down to their cafes with logos very similar to western ones. This at the very least will educate them that it's not really acceptable to copy so much.
AnonD-5583, 19 Apr 2011Galaxy S mimics iphone. Thats blatant truth and only a blind would disagree. And anyone mockin... moreto be fair there is similarities, but not enough to sue them over. i mean with the form factor, theres only so much you can do in that shape handset and the buttons have to be at the bottom for comfort, also since when does the iphone have 3 buttons at the bottom?
Galaxy S mimics iphone. Thats blatant truth and only a blind would disagree. And anyone mocking apple here,....must ope their eyes n see their galaxies, if they haven't seen it carefully, despite being using it for so many months.
Hey Steve look around you everyone is copying everything in this world, from cars, appliances, tv, movies, music, buildings, house, food, fashion and guess what the earth is similar design as UrAnus. Lol.
All touch phones now looks like first iPhone.... AND??
This is now STANDARD!
Steve Jobs have cool ideas for innovation, but, hi have TOO BIG HOLE in IOS!
All must pay, no bluetooth, no card, no flash support, no video calls...
This holes other companys USE and drop REAL "PATCH" for personal devices...
Now, Steve learn "WHAT IS BETTER IN SAMSUNG OR SONY OR HTC..." and implemented: Led flash (please, this is copy-cat from others) now talking for adobe flash (this is also copy-cat from SGS)... etc...
Apple must learn, STANDARD is STANDARD, NOT copy-cat!
Raj, 19 Apr 2011Why the iPhone 5 is not coming up better than Galaxy S II? lol....The iPhone 5 is expected to double the sales of the iPhone 4. Even analysts have said that the iPhone 5 could sell 100 million. And currently, Apple holds the title of the biggest phone manufacturer in the world when it comes to profit. So there's no way in hell they are scared.
Samsung should just rise the price of the parts that apple needed. maybe this will make steve jobs reconsider whether he want to sue samsang or not. :p
What's right is right. The Galaxy's design is really like a copy of iphne. That'll be a good lesson for Samsung that instead of firing they should have honoured their designers, who really were capable and talented people.
Remember the time when Microsoft ruled the world, now it's Apple's turn haha.
Lesson learnt. Don't become too rich or youl get sued. Amen!
Wow, it took this long for Apple and Steve Jobs to realize Samsung been copying iPhone design? How amusing!
