Legal Well. Raise your hands if you didn't see this one coming. Nobody is safe from Apple's and Microsoft's legal crusade against Android, not even Samsung, which supplies a lot of chips to Apple. Apple has sued Samsung for copying Cupertino's look and feel in various Samsung devices. This is about as surprising as the tides rolling in. Update: And Samsung's going to strike back. Hit 'm hard, Samsung. I don't like you anymore than any of these other patent trolls, but maybe we'll finally see it all crash and burn.

To be fair, how different does one black touch screen phone look from the next?

The speaker has to fit between the top of the screen and the edge of the frame so it needs to be a small rectangle.

Apple is squared and the Samsung has rounded corners.

Just because Apple was one of the first to start using touch screen phones does not mean they invented the idea.
