Back then, we... moreIndeed, by the same analogy, all LCD HDTVs are each other's copy, too. But no sueing there.
Bottom line: what Apple is doing now is either not entirely about design or it's just big man Jobs with his annual round of threats to attempt to scare others into submission. In the meantime (with the case running) you see Samsung launching their SGS2 all over the place, they clearly don't care much about these threats. None of the manufacturers will change their designs because of Apple. And they'd be crazy to ever do so. Apple didn't invent anything.

Form factor, specs, OS, all different. By his analogy all recent smartphones are 'Iphone clones'. Right. :)
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2011what is a sub-1GHz processor and a sub-3MP camera????sub = below, specs aren't confirmed, but sure to be below 1ghz and 3MP
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2011what is a sub-1GHz processor and a sub-3MP camera????anything below that spec

Well touchscreen with hardware keyboard since apple doesnt have one. The best example sony ericsson xperia pro. Now tell me if it still common touchscreen design? So since touchscreen means full touch screen phone and xperia pro is fulltouchscreen with extra hardware keyboard so i consider xperia pro as touchscreen phone that cannot be sued by copying or similarly design to anyphone in the market.

Is the LG Prada K2 made of the same overpriced, plastic as their designer bags?

Somehow, they're currently being sued by Apple for patent infringement and already paying their penalty to Microsoft. It's like Apple doesn't want anyone else to make touchscreen smartphone besides them. If the HTC phones are being sued even though they looked different, then SE should be along the way too.
So, tell me other ways to design a touchscreen smartphone that doesn't infringe Apple's patents?
jm, 23 Jul 2011are you blind? Come on! Just go to LG store, and ask them if that u want to try their LG OPTIM... moreagree, SE own design but apple?? nop, they 1st copy LG Prada design for iP4, i mean prev Prada model..iOS oso copycat dow not all but still copy frm others, ;D
jm, 23 Jul 2011are you blind? Come on! Just go to LG store, and ask them if that u want to try their LG OPTIM... morethats what we called freedom pal. apple wants their iphone is the best but their not do you remember signal problem of the iphone 4. the ihold problem. think about that.. SGS 2 is the best mobile.
jm, 23 Jul 2011are you blind? Come on! Just go to LG store, and ask them if that u want to try their LG OPTIM... moreAgree. Nowadays Korean cellphone company too much copying from the bitten expired fruit. LG copying Apple but not as blatantly as Samsung. Even some of Samsung dumbphones now straightly copying Nokia and Blackberry.

Just go to LG store, and ask them if that u want to try their LG OPTIMUS BLACK and you will see it is very much identical to iphone 4 design but lg's own android ui customasion also copy the ios ui. Oh please, just look at lg black keyboard it really seems to be a clone or so much similar to iphone keyboard. Now tell me, is that keyboard is excempted to ur stupid idea that how will you design touch screen phone? Well may i ask you this does all qwerty touch keyboard should design the same? In slide up era u said that all slide up are the same design common! Have u seen the se hazel? W995? Kita? Aino? W910? C905? Etc! They are all slide up from the same company but different design. Designing a touch screen which similar to other brand is indeed copy cat. Look se arc, x10 they are touchscreen ryt? Are they similar to iphone design? Open ur eyes do not buy any of those product from copycat manufacturers both from korea. Thumbs up to Se and htc for bringing up their own idea on how to design a phone with thei original concept.
for all you apple fan boys out there that has there apple head grown way to big.... if you will just do some research..... search the lg prada. its first appear 2006 and 2007 when apple introduce there iphone..... even the icons from lg prada is like being copied by iphone..... so pls don't get it to serious about the phone. these is just a phone... hello
There is a phone for everyone in LG's upcoming lineup, and its a good thing because not everyone is a geek. some people just want a mid level smartphone with decent specs. But I am interested in that 4.5 incher HD one ;-).
Looks like an iPhone? How else are you going to design touchscreen bar phone?
Back then, we have candy bars, sliders and flip phones, a lot of them have almost the same design with each other, but you don't see them suing each other. We never heard these, "ohh! that one copies Nokia, this one copies LG".
Those who always said that companies beside Apple needs their own design and innovation, please, pleaseee, try to stop bashing and do tell us what other way you can design a touchscreen phone. Anyone?
Btw, Macbook have the same form factor with other laptops in the world(rectangular, flip to open, with keyboard and a screen), so does that mean other manufacturers should sue Apple?
