nokia's icons looked a lot like the ones being used today by many phone makers, even on pocket pc's and handhelds before. so you guys stop arguing about which company copied what and who is the most inovative.
p.s. up to now iphones are dependent on itunes
suck on that
Someone should sue apple for placing battery & signal indicator on top bar.
Lets face it IOS is poor and Touchwiz is worse. Samsung should just throw Core Android on there device then they wont have this problem. Most people remove touchwiz from their samsung device anyways. I think the court is very one side though as the evidence proving samsung hadnt copied the iphone with regards to the same of the phone was dismissed but this evidence which is against samsung is happily accepted... hmmmm not a very fair trial.
I think only the design factor cannot be considered. All phones are rectangular in shape from decades, square icons we could find in many other devices before the invent of even iPhones.
If inspiration is the consideration then what about drop down menu in idevices.
samsung iphone and other phones also same UI,wht is apple bulshit he stop all other compnay monbile phone business.apple allredy sucking mony all of world smart phone business but that evil company want more paper dollor .........
No matter what you think about the case, there is a lesson here.
Nokia decided to ignore Apple, sleeping on the Symbian's laurels, and Samsung really paid attention. Where is Nokia now and where is Samsung?
niksam, 08 Aug 2012why only Samsung? sue LG too.. sue every smartphone company for copying Apple.. fu Apple..why is it that when evidence is posted you samsung fandroids get even more mad. learn to accept people?
I don't see here any copies, comparing and copying is something very diferent...
but even if there are some copyings (and there aren't), than apple should be more inteligent (learn more)...
I like Samsung Galaxy because the more big screen not the shape of it.
Apple should understand of what the customers want.
Whats wrong with improving and innovate?
Apple simply don't want to accept that there's so many phone that far better than their puny iPhone and the patent office is paid by Apple to grant that silly generic patent.
Also I smell something fishy: Judge Lucy and this whole trial process is paid by Apple to grant Apple a win.
SHAME ON YOU APPLE!!!
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2012the thing is that they shld compare their products to those which are best in the market and a... moreSo when Apple tries to think like Sony but not copy an actual product, they're thieves, but when Samsung comes up with a 132 page internal document with the single purpose of comparing their product to an actual Apple product, that's good business? Interesting logic going on in these comments.
Just thought i have 4 black tyres on my car that are round in shape.My mates car also has 4 black round tyres.Quick.lets sue each over.Pathetic waste of time.These things are the same and do the same thing but are different brands:-)Dont insult people apple and think people cant tell the difference between an overpriced overated toy and a fully functioning smartphone.Get a grip
[deleted post]Thanks for that brilliant legal analysis. If Samsung thinks the judge is biased they can always file a formal complaint. Why don't they do that?
Don't care about this anymore. Who ever makes the better product is who i want.. and right now Apple is beat. HTC One X/GS3 even the Xperia S would be better... Might even try a WP8 when released, but for now, i just don't care and did not read.
Apple is just ridiculous.
how can you claim that a rectangular phone is a your patent?
they look stupid now
fighting over super simple things,so immature
im not a samsung fanboy
i love sony
i dont hate apple either,i just find this argument non sense
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2012Hopefully Samsung brings out all those documents of them comparing their products to LG, HTC, ... morethe thing is that they shld compare their products to those which are best in the market and apple WAS the best.
