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.

After seeing this phone, seems to me that Apple might have copied the design for the iPhone 4 from Samsung... ;)

This lawsuits are absolute bullshit, and everyone here knows it.

If you are desperately seeking 'prior art' why on earth would you link to a phone announced a year AFTER iPhone?

Hmmm, lets see:

http://www.gsmarena.com/apple_iphone_4-3275.php

Released 2010, June

As far as I can count, the Samsung F480 was released 2 years before iPhone 4...

Edit:

And I was being kind of sarcastic in my initial post... ;)
