The first touchscreen phone was the IBM Simon, launched in 1992. During this decade the popular iPaq (not made by Apple by the way) was launched with touchscreens and optional phone attachments. HTC, the leader in touchscreen phones up until the iPhone and makers of phones like the Nexus One launched their first touchscreen phone, the HTC Wallaby aka XDA in 2002.
In fact...Apple did actually make a concept for a touchscreen phone (not a mobile, a regular landline phone) way back in 1984! An these invention WAS PATENTED by Apple!!!

if "Devil" tomorrow creates another creature with same bodyparts as human, then "GOD" can sue "DEVIL" for design infringement......dont know where the court will be though, but definitely should sue, if GOD has made a patent on the design of Human....
[deleted post]Not right..
Look close those, aren't equal, in Samsung even the camera position and central button is identical....
Those are the "little things" that make Apple suit Samsung.

Apple then ccopied HTC for bringing the Touch screen phones and they also copied Xerox for copying GUI(Graphical user interface)... Do you have the same advice for apple now kid????

Basis are the same but those little things make us totally different.
KFC don't suit Churches just because they used chicken, or McDonald to Burger King...they uses different ingredients.
Same can be apply to Phones :P
This is just madness.
..."The judge basically said that only Apple is allowed to sell thin square tablets with round edges. That's just insane."

See how original these products are :
Something samsung will never reach despite all their profit, and do you know why? It's because cheapness just run in their culture and blood.
Do not make excuses for them, because they took the easy road and an intelligent person will notice this right away.
apple cant see progress of samsung
in fact we must accept that thicker heavier bad edged plastic samsung tablet and galexies are very very better than apple's products
samsung pls support asia because we respect to your products. we wiiill buy all your products with any cost

Apple is also being sued by others and most recently being sues by HTC..... Its just that i feel most of the times apple bribes the judges to rule the favour in thier end....
[deleted post]Why do you think Apple is not suit Blackberry or Nokia or LG or SE?, because they don't use the same designs of them.
PlayBook is not by far similar to iPad, just mention ONE single Nokia that look like an iPhone?
This can be a huge difference for Samsung if they start to make different gadgets.
Maybe different colors, the camera and buttons in different positions, the edges slight different, maybe a fingerprint, I don't know but CHANGE!!!
[deleted post]I dont like Apple(but I dont hate it, rather I respect it) and absolute hate Samsung from the bottom of my heart(because they are literally destroying the planet and the minds of the people)... so at first didn't know who's side to take, but after seeing so much trolling on the other discussions, I think I should back apple....
For anyone, who shout about rounded edges thing....
every can of beer is made up of metal, has a labelling and looks quite the same, but that doesn't mean that you would take the design a bud's can and fill it up with your in-house juice.......
another thing, if you guys think that Apple has gone crazy, then why they are not suing, SE or Moto or HTC or LG or Nokia??? Time to think.....
[deleted post]And soon it will be revealed that why Steve Jobs quit Apple... may be he opposed what is happening at the moment... or what apple is accusing others of.
[deleted post]apple may not be able to survive without steve jobs on the wheel , the next screwup will be the beginning of their downfall my friend, no need to worry. They are just trying to eliminate any one who can match them for now bt in the end they will die
