PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Hold on to your panties, because this should come as a surprise: I'm actually agreeing that Samsung is copying Apple. The Korean company just released a new entry-level Android smartphone, and it's called the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus. While Apple's previous complaints regarding Samsung's supposed copying were obviously nonsense, this Galaxy Ace Plus, on the other hand... It's almost as if Samsung is giving Apple the finger by copying the iPhone 3G(S) almost verbatim.

"Almost" verbatim/1:1 copy? Hardly!

The only two things I can see that are identical between the two phones are that both are black and both have rounded corners (yes, I know Apple ludicrously sues about rounded corners, but that's stupid patents for you).

*Everything* else is different:

* Speaker slit
* Screen size
* Home screen
* Home button
* Logo positions
* Camera and flash position
* Buttons on the side

How on *earth* is this even classified as "almost" a copy in any way? How many other phones on the market are black and have rounded corners - virtually all of them! I think it's very poor that people can't tell the difference between these two phones if you ask me.
