Legal "Comparing Samsung's flagship products before and after release of the iPhone & iPad, and how Apple's intellectual property infringement claims hold up." A terrible visual guide that ignores not only Samsung's own pre-iPhone designs, but also - and worse yet - the thirty-odd years of mobile computing that preceded the iPhone. Typical of today's technology world: a complete and utter lack of historical sense. Worse yet are the claims about icons: only the phone icon is similar, but Apple did not invent the green phone icon. This is a remnant of virtually all earlier phones which use a green phone icon for initiate/answer call, and a red phone icon for terminate/reject call. Claiming this deserves IP protection is beyond ridiculous, and shows just how low Apple is willing to go.

When I saw the N770 I waited until they combined it with a phone. But somehow Nokia kept being stupid.

The N770 was nowhere near the iPhone. The N800 and N810 weren't either. I own an N810 and owned an N800 also. Maemo is as far removed from the iOS user experience as possible. The only commonality is that they are both ARM based.

The N900 was a phone, but it was seriously iPhone-ified. The Maemo OS was dumbed down for touch between NITOS2007 and the N900's version. The NITOS2008 (Diablo) started the trend, though it was initially just them making all the icons giant and finger sized.
