Because the design is a rather utiltarian one for a handheld touch devise, to find design infringement for something like this the infringing phone would need to be nearly exact.

Velvin Hogan f'ed this whole thing up by convincing the jury that prior art rules include some "interchangability" requirement that they don't.

I'm sure Apple went "huh?" when the verdict was read. This is their first win after six consecutive losses.

A judge in England made them post a disclaimer on the UK version of their website stating that "Samsung did not copy iPad." Who says the English don't have a good sense of humor?
