Legal This is probably not entirely surprising. The European Commission has announced that it is investigating both Apple and Samsung because they may have breached antitrust rules with regard to patents used as standard in the mobile phone industry - otherwise known as FRAND patents. While the EC states it's investigating both Samsung and Apple, it's likely the investigation focusses on Samsung.

AFAIK the Star Trek Tricorder had a big touchscreen back in 1966.

But we'll probably never know if it had multitouch, slide to unlock, inertial scrolling or an App Store. ;)

Yeah, it even had an app store and ran an early beta of iOS 6.

And it was made of wood.
