remember the LG Prada, released before the original iphone. Funny it has retangle shape with metal band framing around the outside of the phone and capacitive touch screen. I think LG should be the one suing.
It's quite bad that peoples buys Apple's phones so Apple can use your money to go around and sues other corporations just because Apple is butthurt over that other brands (like Samsung) is better than Apple.
Apple should really think longer than to just money. They should think about that suing companies like this isn't going to let the mobilephones to have a progress forward. It's rather going backwards on how mobilephones is today then.
How would this world be if everyone had been like Apple?, yes the world would have gone to hell long time ago.
EDIT: LOL i posted this reply when the clock was 13:37. Damn i'm pretty l33t then :-D.
Guys lets admit that Apple devices are very simple to use. Even a 5 year old can use it fully....
So thats their USP and thats wat they should patent. Yes they are always overpriced but Its upto us, wat to choose and buy..
Let them fight and we should enjoy the technology.

Apple didn't say a thing and let everyone else make their own touchscreen phones...
...but hey, copying even the icon style and even the swipe bouncing effects and all is not so original. they can make rectangular phones, fine. but can they not think of different interface? different icons? different swipe techniques? they just imitated iPhone's backbone and everything. even the packaging. remember that phones before are packed in odd shape and even big boxes, with CD's, manuals, all sorts of cables, regular chargers, etc... but iPhone was packed in a simple and small rectangular box with no manual and no cd. just the phone, cable, and headset. and even that, they copied!!! even all the tv commercials, they copy APple like simple white background with a person talking about the phone. or just showing the mobile unit with just a hand and swiping through the screens, they copied those too! they dont have originality!
Let me ask everyone here, if another company decided to copy some of Samsung's patents, would Samsung be douches if they decided to sue? They have done so by the way.
If you have a patent, and you believe someone unlawfully copied your ideas, then you can sue. Period. What's the big deal? Apple themselves had to settle with Nokia recently. All companies have to defend (what they believe are their rights).
If someone came into my house and was fiddling about in my drawers, I'd thump I'm on the head. I wouldn't go thinking "but what would my neighbours think? Would they say I'm a douche?" lol
Apple should really sue Samsung. Posting both phones side to side only proves that Samsung had better screen than Apple and makes me want to buy Samsung (Android not Bada) phones over Apple phones. Every dollar counts once Apple win the case.
Hello. To me. Samsung is wrong. They copy two much. And that is bad for Samsung.
does this mean that from now on, no phone provider can design a rectangular shaped phone because apple would think that they stole the design from them..?? phone providers should now think of designing triangular or circular shaped phone....
cardoman, 25 Jun 2011Apple should open a special section and name it iSue!iAgree.. LOL!!!
If Apple felt that they we're violated and feels the need to do somethin' about it...then I'm with them. It must have been good to own an "i" product cause Apple has been doing something to protect them.
Let's admit guys that ever since the 1st iPhone comes to Market, it had become a barometer to other phone manufacturer and the OS itself.
Let's give Apple a break. I think they're just doing what they think is necessary.
