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.

Last time something like this happened against the Galaxy S Photoshop was thought to be used.
But since we dont know for sure we'll have to rely on CultOfMac's unbiased opinion then.

No, they're not really the same size but, in all fairness, the difference is not as big as in the iPad / Galxy Tab case.

According to http://www.apple.com/iphone/iphone-3gs/specs.html and http://www.theverge.com/products/galaxy-ace-plus/4468#product-specs...
iPhone 3GS: 2.4 x 4.5 x 0.48 inches
Galaxy Ace Plus: 2.46 x 4.56 x 0.44 inches

While Samsung is not win any prize for originality they're still different enough to tell the difference between the two of them -- with SAMSUNG written in large, friendly letters on the front and at the back being a dead giveaway. ;-)
