Apple So, how serious is the legal battle between Apple and the various Android phone makers, really? Surely, it's just logical business sense that's behind it, right? Calculated, well-planned precision strikes designed to hurt Android where simply making better, more innovative products isn't enough? Well, no, not really. We already knew Steve Jobs took this personal - now we know just how personal.

No one gives Nokiad any credit in all this. Nokia N-Series of internet tablets preceded the iphone.
It was always thought that Nokia should have combine the internet tablet idea with a cell phone since they were a cell phone company. The N800 was a good idea at the time, but it was woefully underpowered I think Apple saw the potential of the N-Series of internet tablets and produced the phone that Nokia was too slow to produce.

It also had icons, widgets, apps, and an app store.
