PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Google co-founder Larry Page has denied that Google entered the phone market after Apple and the iPhone, accusing Steve Jobs of "rewriting history" . . . "We had been working on Android a very long time, with the notion of producing phones that are Internet enabled and have good browsers and all that because that did not exist in the marketplace," Page said. "I think that characterization of us entering after is not really reasonable."

Exactly. The point is not that Google, was copying Apple for going into the smartphone market. Obviously, Android was in development before iPhone was released. The point is that as soon as iPhone hit the market Google copied the features, and UI of the iPhone.
