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.

I always heard that apple got their flash module from samsung ?
Either Apple switched to another supplier or trying to leverage the price by exchanging licence.

Mind you I heard that most people were dissatisfied with the touchwiz interface, so samsung should just drop it, apologize to everyone and go on.
Appart from that the form factor is pretty standard so no complains about that.

Samsung is a really big company with lots of divisions. Apple can sue their phone division and keep on perfectly good terms with the chip division. It's all just business.
