PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In light of the jury verdict in Apple vs. Samsung, the one-liners and jokes flew back and forth. One in particular, by Dan Frakes, has been copied and pasted all over the web, and it goes like this: "When the iPhone debuted, it was widely criticized for having no buttons/keys. Now people think the iPhone's design is 'obvious'." This is a very common trend in this entire debate that saddens me to no end: the iPhone is being compared to simple feature phones, while in fact, it should be compared to its true predecessor: the PDA. PDAs have always done with few buttons.

This is because it seems there was some evidence (notably Google telling Samsung not to copy Apple)

This was not a legal advice, though.

Even the homescreens look the same

No, they don't. When Apple shows Android phones they always show the app drawer instead of the home screen, because it looks a lot more like iPhone's home screen.

For example, I don't see Apple winning a case against Google's Nexus brand

Then you're missing the fact that Nexus S was found infringing.
