PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Hold on to your panties, because this should come as a surprise: I'm actually agreeing that Samsung is copying Apple. The Korean company just released a new entry-level Android smartphone, and it's called the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus. While Apple's previous complaints regarding Samsung's supposed copying were obviously nonsense, this Galaxy Ace Plus, on the other hand... It's almost as if Samsung is giving Apple the finger by copying the iPhone 3G(S) almost verbatim.

This has to be fake. Why would Samsung put the Apple logo on the back?

On the left is the iPhone 3GS, on the right the Samsung.

Whoa... no...? I'm confused... which one has Siri? And the GBs and Wifis - that's what I want. And the apps.

Look again. I think that you may have missed that he is not talking about the one on the right or the one on the left but the one in the middle.

See how it has the Apple logo on the back but on the front you can clearly see that it says Samsung and is running Android? [/sarcasm]

The apple-logo is from the iPhone ;) but that said:

It IS fake!!!

They have resized the image and removed the two front buttons on the bottom to make it look like the iPhone, exactly like they did the last time. Thom has been fooled by a trolling Apple fan ;)

Do a google image search to find non photoshopped images of the phone

Oh wait, don't use image search. It brings up the photoshopped images first. Do a normal search.

The top of the phone has the engraved stripe similar to iPhone, but that is as far as I can see the only difference from the last Samsung products that makes it slightly more iPhone-ish.
