This is too funny! Suing your partner and vendor! What's next, Apple?
The iPhone 4 is way too much like the 3G.

Why dosen't Apple just sue everybody???

Why not? Every manufacture in business today makes the same phone: a black, rectangular phone with a large touchsceen and 1 or more buttons on the bottom. Why target the galaxy line? Because their phones have a chrome strip around the side? BS. Take a look at any android phone from HTC, Motorola, Sony or LG and you'll see they all the same basic form factor. Heck, even the Blackberry storm and Palm pre's are similar. If Apple is gona sue one companuy over this design, they may as well sue the whole industry. All I've got to say is, good luck.
They probably will. They've already got Motorola, HTC, and Samsung.

Does anyone here think Samsung came to these designs by themselves?

So a lot of people are saying "BS, Apple is just jealous" , but really here, can anyone come up with an argument that Samsung isn't basing its designs on the iPhone?

Can anyone make a reasonable argument that phones such as the Galaxy 4G (with its rounded back and chrome bezel) came about through Samsung's own design evolution instead of saying "this [iPhone] is successful, lets mimic it"

Case A:
Samsung's designs from right before the iPhone is announced: http://t.co/XWGejfc

Samsung's 'concepts' from 1 month after the iPhone is announced: http://t.co/nOuQReC

Case B:
Samsung has a long history of copying other phone designs, including the RAZR, the Q, and the Blackberry.

Who gives a flying fig?

Apple is simply behaving like jerks, which IS situation normal for them....but still.
Personally Blue, I don't think it should matter in this case.

There are thousands upon thousands of products in this world that look like other products but are not exactly the same. Example: Laptops all look pretty much alike. A couple of years la...

Oh c'mon now

It's not like Samsung's ever been associated with original designs (it was an April Fools joke on Phonescoop, even)
Seriously? Oh so because someone else comes up with a vehicle that has 4 wheels and puts the steering wheel on the left side they're stealing technology? puhleez!
How many different designs can you come up with anymore for a phone??? I have not seen a "New" phone in a long time; so does that mean that if a company comes out with a new design that they can sue ANYONE who makes one that resembles their product???...

The Galaxy line of phones looks a LOT like the iPhone

There is no question about it.

I don't know if Apple should sue or not, but these phones are incredibly similar in style, to the point that it almost seems like Samsung is blatently copying the look and feel of Apples products.
Apple has tried the 'copying look and feel' argument before and their lawsuit was thrown out of court, you can't patent 'the look and feel' of a product.

Look, the idea of a rectangular, slate phone with rounded corners that has a UI which is a row...

webOS also looks like a lot like iOS

but I guess since it's dead Apple doesn't care 🤣

Apple's getting desperate.

Just can't stand losing so much market share to a superior OS, can they?


oh wait...your serious....


still, that was a pretty funny joke. you should do stand up. 🤣
It's kind of silly to consider a fragmented, poorly secured, less stable OS a superior OS. Openness is nice, and Android has its merits...but it still has a long way to go to reach the level of excellence the iOS experience has achieved.

Wow. Really, Apple?

What a bunch of ignorant fools.

I didn't know that Apple had a trademark on black touchscreen cell phones.

U MAD???
It seems lately, if Apple can sue it, they will!
No, they have a trademark on rectangles.
was a giant buttonless slab touchscreen before the iPhone?

Samsung sure churned lots of phones out- how come they didn't make any? 🤤

God Sues

Apr 18, 2011, 6:34 PM

apple should ask nintendo and mercedes!

sony playstation "move" looks very similar to wii.
hyundai cars look very similar to mercedes.
why are they not suing?
when you at the top, you don't need to sue!
I guess apple is falling from the tree! haha
hehe...I get it...hehe 😁
You forgot the Super Nintendo looks like the Sega... I mean Apple is just now suing after Samsung has had their Galaxy series out for awhile now, so why not... LOL 🤣
