And that was back then in 2003.
Hell, even the specs are similar (1024x768 screen, 1ghz processor, 256ram). And it can run a proper operating system, a dedicated video card, a WACOM pen (most likely pressure-sensitive) and has a detachable keyboard. And you can get one for just ~250$ (cheaper than the iPad)
Hah, up yours apple, that device is almost a decade old and better than your piece of junk.

But can you tell the audience of a phone reviewing website why it is a better phone.
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2011Yet you still buy cell phones, cars, computers, and internet that were all created by americans. So Americans invented cars and computers eh? Also invented incorrect history books by the sound of it
Wow!!!! Apple invented rectangular shape cellphones & tablets. That is the best innovations I've ever seen. Apple invented how to patent others ideas as your own.

The nation-wide German ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales must be illegal, because Apple should not be allowed to "patent" a design that they themself have copied! Apple did not develop the iPad-"design" at all, they just copied the design from HP Compaq TC1100 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP_Compaq_TC1100
sadly one little country like korea is not going to make the slightest bit of difference whats so ever. just a game of tit for tat.
Without taken side, Intellectual Property (IP) should be taken seriously. The Big company like IBM,ORACLE,APPLE ,MICROSOFT etc. had sued & been sued on violation of IP, with fine paid or settlement out of court. what you are seen btw APPLE & SAMMY is a show of pride. it shouldn't have reach this stage if they agreed on settlement out of court.
The purpose of patent registration is to solve a problem like this, so you know when you violate someone IP with documentary evidence.
I wish Apple & SAMMY good luck in their pursuit.

Overall the lawyers win with big bank balances judging by what the UK charges for solicitors..
If apple is using a samsung patent or vice versa what do they want to actually happen?? Do they want to stop any product with the breach of copyright from sale or ask for royalties..???
Right if a company is using a copyrighted piece in its smartfones the only ever solutions are to not make that smartfone OR pay royalties.If its NOT make that smartfone then it could mean apple never make a smartfone because if its to do with wirless capabilities there is no other way is there..?
Wireless capabilities are what make a smartfone more functional outside the closed O/S so there would be no other smartfones outside Samsung..This will just stifle creativity and not benefit ANYONE..
So the questions in all this is the REAL PURPOSE of these courtroom battles ,,is it to STOP other manufacturers being able make smartfones OR to get money..If its to get money then surley samsung are paying all the royalties back out again into the pockets of lawyers...
There is one other point and that anyone in reciept of a patent must endevour to protect it..If a breach has taken place and you do not object to it then you cannot expect a judge further down the line to help you..It is still up to that person to protect his/her copyright..

so that means they're not really ones to complain about Samsung.
[deleted post]At the end of the day, the iPhone is still the pioneer of the whole touch screen trend back when the world was using the RAZR.
Samsung either copies or attempts to one-up Apple. There's no denying that.
Haha,oh my god. If apple lose, iphone5 will no more a mobile wireless phone. I will be house line phone. Tim cook will say, just plug in yr house telefon line and use broadband is faster.
