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 are all stomping in each other's IP like crazy, this have to stop !!!!

[Sarcasm off]

Do really Apple thinks that a black square device with rounded corners is *design*.

Samsung and many other device manufacturers have black devices with rounded corners that predates the iPhone and iPad.

This puppy was being sold years before the iPhone was even designed.

At that time those were the designs Apple was selling:

What is worrying is that people is starting to fall in the Apple game "Smartphones are our idea and everyone is copying us". I had developed for "Smartphones" years before Apple even thought in building one.

They were called PDAs at that time though.

True. I love the split keyboard on the sides of the screen on the iPhone and am really glad they copied that from Samsung.

That link was meant as a joke, right?
