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.

The N770 was nowhere near the iPhone.

The thing that makes a current phone better than my old nokia phones is a big touchscreen and a full featured webbrowser. I have never owned the N770 but it certainly sounded like what I wanted.
But now that I think of it; what is it that made the iphone so special? I just explained what it was for me. But apparently it was different for other people.
