Does this look like a android-ifid IOS to anyone else but me? Looks interesting at least, i do give them props for changing it up a bit though. Hopefully Apple can make their next phone actually special.
Apple calls it the iDroid 5s
Yes it does, and you better get used to this new interface. Knowing Apple, it'll be another 6 years before it changes again.

But yeah, the initial pictures do remind me of Android.
Apple has been copying Android since at least 5.0.....this time around it just got more obvious....
looks nothing like Android, but pull out a WP8 and you will see that it is like iOS and WP8 had a baby and the baby looks AWESOME, I love all three major operating systems(Android, iOS, and WP8 ) but iOS and WP8 work a lot more fluidly then android an...
There's definitely a lot of direction here that Android started to go towards, as well as a lot of WebOS's 'glassiness.' Apple did a good job avoiding the bleakness of the former and rough edges of the latter.

Like Android, WebOS, WP8 with a smidgen of Blackberry OS 10

I have no problems with innovation, it drives the market and people desire to have the latest and greatest. But forgive me if I am wrong, but didn't Apple sue the hell out of Samsung for rounded corners on icons among other things, Microsoft for the Recycle Bin.

So with that being said, who is going to sue Apple for the features that scream Android, WebOS, Blackberry and WP8?

I know Steve Jobs Quoted Pablo Picasso with "good artist copy, great artist steal." But the trick is getting away with it. This should pan out interestingly over time.
If Apple wasn't so damn sue happy I wouldn't be upset that they borrowed so many damn features from others OSes.

I hope Microsoft, Google, and Blackberry all get together and sue the socks off of Apple to show if you want to borrow other can sue t...

Not innovative or a game changer

But it didn't have to be. The sheep don't care. All they see is something new and that's fine. It's a welcome change but the same ol boring grid of icons are still there and the home screen looks hideous. Knowing Apple they won't refresh it for the next 10 years. Will the sheep care? Nope. Will they still sell phones? Of course. Will Android still thrive? Absolutely. Competition is always good.

To me, it looks more like a copy of Win8 with thinner fonts, and without all the "live" tiles. I don't like it, but I didn't have a say in how it looks.

Like what Samsung had in it's galaxy s line starting...2009? Um...maybe Apple should give back the Nickels...
