Sir Awesome, 21 Jun 2012Who cares? They weren't the first to make smartphones. In 2000, the touchscreen Ericsson R38... moreyou can add the LG Prada and Samsung F700 to that list, both phones came out before the iPhone, yet Apples "Original" design somehow looks like both of these
annoyed man, 21 Jun 2012Dude you can't possibly talk about this without knowing. First thing when the Samsung i9100 ca... moreyeah and the LG Prada and Samsung F700 both came out before the iPhone. did Apple copy their design from them??
jz, 21 Jun 2012dosent matter whose product is that...made by samsung or else.....what matters is who make go... moreWho cares?
They weren't the first to make smartphones.
In 2000, the touchscreen Ericsson R380 Smartphone was released.
In early 2001, Palm, Inc. introduced the Kyocera 6035, the first smartphone to be deployed in widespread use in the United States.
In 2001 Microsoft announced its Windows CE Pocket PC OS would be offered as "Microsoft Windows Powered Smartphone 2002.
In 2002 RIM released their first BlackBerry devices with integrated phone functionality and shifted the positioning of their products from 2-way pagers to email-capable mobile phones.
All that copied from Wikipedia, not my work.
You should know the history of smartphones.
Plus by when Apple first released their first iPhone in 2007, the older companies would've released new versions of their own OS and new phone style.
I enjoyed reading this, I am a fanatic about mobile technology, I have a range of tablets and smartphones, and had a total so far, about 103 devices, and none was from Apple, because they do not like. Ah, now if I explain why the GSMARENA not allow both text my condolences Apple! SAMSUNG Yeah, congratulations!
Toonman, 21 Jun 2012This rivalry reminds me of Sega V Nintendo in the 90's and look how that ended. I think it's more like Apple vs Microsoft during late 80s to early 90s. Apple hasn't learnt a lesson from the past, which is a shame. They could do better than this.

midas84, 21 Jun 2012This is getting ridiculous but is also funny considering only within the last few weeks Apple ... moreWell said. Samsung is a massive company they make components for mobiles, TV's and other products essentially they control alot of the parts needed for other companies including competition but they dont monopolise and strangle the market out of business.
jz, 21 Jun 2012dosent matter whose product is that...made by samsung or else.....what matters is who make go... moreLmao. not quite. The Iphone was not even close to as innovative as you and a billion others believe. There were more capable phones even way back when. The only thing they have ever been good at was hype and control. Sadly way way way way too good at those. Also...Doesn't matter who make them???? yeah right. Lol. On top of that have you seen Samsung use their own hardware???? Apparently not if you say it's only who makes good use
My only worry now is that Apple will take Samsung to court over slavishly copying Apple's idea of court action...
CoolIAM, 21 Jun 2012Samsung now copying filing of Lawsuits from Apple.:) Lmao. Next you will see that too. Apple will file a lawsuit against Samsung stating that they attempted to sue first so suing is their invention. They are applying for patent right now and Samsung should compensate for steeling this breakthrough idea
sukhpreet, 21 Jun 2012no doubt apple is a better technology but now apple cant compete with samsung latest products ... moreDude you can't possibly talk about this without knowing. First thing when the Samsung i9100 came out everyone was comparing it with the iphone 4 and so they raged because well it was new and stuff like that but still after the iphone 4s launched the i9100 still has better benchmarks. So in my opinion i have to say that you are ignorant and do not know what you are talking about.
f..k in apple brand they phones are very bad peoples say that apple dosent but bleedy phone it was so annoying dont buy it waste of money
old apple phones used a lot of samsung tech and yet there are all these apple fan boys claiming they was better. The Galaxy S phones have always been like for like with iphone. Apple stopped charging tart tax on their tech they may get a bigger chunk of the market. You can get the SGS3 for free on a £35 contract, when the iphone 4s came out you be lucky to get it free on £45 cos apple are rotten to the core
