Copycat...dont think so. Apple is copycating everybody else and now they got cocky and suing everybody else. and soon they say that Apple invented the smart phone, so everybody has to pay....
And what the hlll? How can one contry ban other contrys markets???
Last time i checked Finland is intepended contry!!!
So FK Apple!!!
Edit: wasnt Sammy first in europe?! Well mayby not in the touchbar type but still...
So Sammy should raise a suite aggainst Apple that not mentioning that hard ware made by others such like Sammy....
But i think Sammy will push through!!!
vjr, 10 Aug 2011and about apple sueing thing...dey r winning...cuz dey proved demselves right about samsung in... more"android mobs is dominating the market...but y apple is only suing samsung?? lg,motorola,htc...apple dosnt seem to sue dem like its doing on samsung...
i really dont c a similarity betn htc,lg,moto wid apple...jus y samsung...common guys...wat will u do if some1 stole ur design n gets popular by it...??"
Maybe because it's Samsung that's giving them the run for their money?
Hunter, 10 Aug 2011Firstly to be clear that I am not a Apple fan or samsung hater. Well being a rational smartph... moreSo you mean Samsung copied Apple's iPads for having round corners in the same way as everybody is copying other tires / wheels companies by having a round tire / wheel?
HAHAHA, not being able to compete at all with Samsung, Apple decided to go the dirty way. They went: "Ohh, please court, ban all Samsung devices cos they are way better than mine and Android just kills iOS".
Firstly to be clear that I am not a Apple fan or samsung hater.
Well being a rational smartphone user i personally dislike the strategy of copy cating like samsung is doing, we all have to admit that samsung has copied the mobile design and other things from apple and introduced his own duplicate phone which is not an innovation. Any body in the business can do so but there are always some rules to follow which samsung didn't and facing this situation.
imran, 10 Aug 2011 Every TV looks the same - Every laptop looks the same - Every DVD player looks the same - Eve... moreso imran, are you suggesting that apple has bribed/interferred with the german court and australian court to ban the samsung pad??????
thats a tall allegation my dear friend.........
samsung makes good product but too bad it often looks like apple.. they can do better. on the other hand apple is just panicking.. next year, they won't be the best selling smartphone anymore.. samsung is coming fast... anyway, still .. Go Samsung!
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2011your all forgetting samsung provide all parts for iphone without sunsung apple wud failYes, right, Samsung are the suppliers..and hence I think it was easy to copy.. :P
Every TV looks the same - Every laptop looks the same - Every DVD player looks the same - Every washing machine looks the
same - Every dishwasher looks the same - Every X looks the same Why does Apple get special privilege
to patent a form factor that they didn't
even invent? Tablets have been
around way before the iPad! Thank
god Apple weren't around when TV's
etc were invented.
[deleted post]If you want even more functions at much cheaper price....then go for Huawei...bringing their first droid out.....
Dont go for Apple then.... people dont buy an Apple product for its processor or display technology...
its a brand.
Really saying.. Samsung has always been copying....look at the link from the user "Experience" below about a laptop....
Thirdly..... the Galaxy Tab has been banned in Germany and Australia...I dont think those are US states.... and hence it proves that Apple has a point...
your all forgetting samsung provide all parts for iphone without sunsung apple wud fail
Once again, WTF, Apple?! Tablets are TABLETS! Period. There are only so many ways to design them: rectangular, flat, with big screen. How is that copying?! If the folks at Apple had any sense, they'd design products that function and can stand up to normal wear and tear without the need for expensive covers and casings. Instead, they're trying to wipe out every single potential rival. I heard they're going to sue HTC too. I used to like Apple until their dumb iPhones turned all my friends into iDouchebags.
Hopefully Samsung will stop the copycat culture from now on, it was getting annoying.
never cared for samsung.. but now i am rooting for them.. am gonna buy S2 instead of waiting for iphone5 now..
The fact is that they are copying each other in the struggle to out invent the other. This is the law of inventions, learn from one another and improve.
If anyone should take someone to court it should be the makers of star trek taking apple to court. Star trek came up with the pad in 1987 with the next generation and before. Apple copied it and it was even called a pad on the tv show!
Jeeylu, 10 Aug 2011If Samsung copies Apple how comes that Samsung products are more complete when it comes to fea... morei agree about the word of " copy". For the example If u have a twin boys which have a "similiar" looks, nobody said that it was copycat, because the twins have a different things that we can see and feel for the differents such as physical things or mental things such like behaviours or ego.
let's see for analogical words:
Twin boys= ( apple and Samsung )
physical things= hardware
mental things= software
Which was the good boy?
The boy that had a good appriciated of the whole things from the "others"(user)!!!!
Samsung got what they deserved. Their Galaxy line of crappy devices needs to get banned in the whole world. I hope yhey lose to Apple and pay HUGE amount of cash and royalties.
Nokia should join the fray and sue Samsung and demand them to pay HUGE royalties.
Apple has a good design for hardware, software and good market ( for fews people only :))
Samsung has good innvation for TV/LCD/LED screen and home appliances, and now smartphone also the tablet, if we looked back for the development,this company has been growth naturally to follow the wave of technologies....( like Bada and Android).
But look for the facts, the massives production and market goes to Samsung, i thinks Apple company is jealous about the growth of samsung in electronic consumers, grow up Apple this is the real world and the techs is for the good kind all of us, not just for u. Good software will be running on the good hardware too. Not just keep a little technologies for next version like iPhone or I Pad.
