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.

The only similarity between the two is the silhouette. And, really, just how many different ways are there to create a candybar phone case?

The button on the bottom is very different between the two.

The speaker slit at the top is very different between the two. There's even a huge Samsung written underneath the speaker slit on the Ace.

The backs of the phones are completely different.

So ... how are they identical?

It's a pretty big stretch to claim these two are "identical copies".

At least with the iPad/Tab, there were no giant Samsung logos on the front, and the buttons were similarly shaped, and whatnot.

Here, these are two very distinct phones.
