Well I don't believe the samsung galaxy S looks anything like the Iphone. The oveall design & placement of features & menu keys are all positioned in diff places. Why don't apple sue everyone for making a phone with lcd screen of same dimensions exactly & say well sue everyone who is doing that. It's a rather flawed case.
For a start the samsung galaxy is black, completely made of different materials the casing. The sensors & speaker design are different & are in different places. The main menu key is a not round, but square, plus the galaxy has two other dedicated android function keys. Turn over to look at the back cover & you can see clearly a completely different design.
I think it's very silly what they are doing. Apple might aswell sue htc, or nokia for that matter they probably already have, lol!!! Apple might think they can stand on everyones feet on the smartphone world just because they are big boys in the industry, but what they don't wat to do is make such a bad name for themselves & play around with money over silly accusations or patents.
It is known that companies or even the government copy other nations to counter new stealth weapons technologies. It always ends up turning into a war. I really don't see why the galaxy s resembles the iphone 4. All smartphone need big screens need a menu key or obviously theres no other way, maybe if samsung implemented a oblong shape menu key would that have stopped the accusation. Or is it the screen?
I don't know about the software, maybe the law suit is just over that only, the icons & the behavior of the icons - copying apples IOS with their touchwiz, then I can see samsung would probably do a better job anyway. Just as Android would do a beter job, whatever clearly happened in the GUI war, I'm sticking with linux maemo. Other than thousands of apps linux maemo beats IOS & Android fair & square epecially with an enhanced kernel!!!
LOL. Finally , apple noticed it. but Samsung did well.
Well I was sure this was coming. Galaxy S was identical to the iphone 3gs and apple didn't say anything when it first came out. Then Samsung just copy the design of iphone 4 for the new galaxy s2. Samsung is a great company in terms of hardware, but in terms of design and ideas they really suck.
perhaps this the reason Nokia prefer to stay with its present UI and icon style.
NOKIA is smarter in producing smartphones wakakaka.
apple have just become idiots the sgs1 and 2 look nothing like the iphone and how does touch wiz ui 4 look like ios 4 in any way how stupid is that?
Apple is just wasting their time, because Samsung is the best in mobile business.
haha apple cant do anything against samsung,they buy all of their stuffs from samsung and then sue them haha apple has to say goodbye in upcoming years
Apple has become afraid of Samsung, because Samsung has a more than great ideas. Go ahead Samsung and Break the monopoly of Apple.
Apple is getting camera modules, screens, audio chips and many other things from samsung so lets see what happens next
Idiot samsung...shure their galaxy s series looks %80 like the stupid Iphone...again: idiot samsung, you are a big giant, do you need to copy someone else design? don't you have designers in your company?
But these days marketing is "You hit me, I hit you" - "you steal from me I steal from you"....noow war begins..
samsung, if you want to hit someone, find a better design, find a better OS and play the game...But I have to accept that the market is dirty...
atleast,samsung is made in its own country,while apple is made in china! oh,yeah,even LG is getting better and better and they are from Corea too!!
samsung, 20 Apr 2011Now SE is providing camera for next iPhone. So one day Apple will sue SE saying that SE copied... moreHope it's the same camera which xperia arc uses, best camera after N8.
Very natural looking photos.
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2011why is apple filing a law suit to other brands that often? before its motorola, now its samsung?Its jealously I guess (at least from Asia market).I believe everyone know that iphone chipset made by samsung;And Samsung is able to make gadget twice better than apple stuff.With waaay cheaper price too.Try to look Ipad vs GalTab....Clearly samsung chew apple for afternoon tea break...
Whatever the case may be,im sure the courts will award samsung the victor,couse thay did it better,and send apple away with there tail between there scrawney little legs.
Samsung is copy cat. IT has actually copied the same and every one knows it. And it does not have quality also.
Im thinking apple asked samsung for the next gen screen couse there stuck with shity lcd rectum display,and samsung told them ta go inovate there own.thats what im thinking..........
The whole situation is strange, Apple rely on Samsung for their processor and screen matrix technology. Samsung rely on Apple for the income in relation to the sale of these screens and processor technology (Apple is one of Samsung's biggest customers). If I were Apple knowing that I rely on Samsung then I would let this one go or sweep it under the carpet. A lawsuit about copying the 'look and feel' of a device can only lead to nowhere. Apple cannot compete unless they work with Samsung as no other company has the real technological know how in terms of designing the above mentioned components so they should work together and come to an agreement. The lawsuit shows that Apple is not thinking ahead in terms of keeping their relationship with Samsung on a good level and that they see Samsung Android phones as a threat now that Android is gaining ground. Apple should ask itself do we really want to upset Samsung and is it worth it?
I'm sorry but this is a joke....Typical Apple.
guys check out the star II in white....borrows heavily in style from the white iphone 4...n yeah sumone shud sue the chinese manufactures....they dont borrow;they mispell and clone...
Shot Up Apple.
