Wanting to incorporate features a competitor offers is not a legal test for patentability or patent infringement.
There were similar emails from Apple from the development of the original iPhone that indicate that their design was based on phones from Sony. These emails were not presented in the California case, because Samsung allegedly missed some filing window that was only referenced in the judges tentative orders at the beginning of the trial. One of many, many issues with the trial that will result in the verdict being overturned.
The emails are not a smoking gun.
The smoking gun is that Apple's utility patents are for things they didn't invent. Their design patents are also a complete joke.
Apple trying to sue away the competition rather than actually competing.
