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.

–and you accused the parent of false correlation? Hilarious.

How so? Development, prototyping and shipping time alone would make kaiwai's hypothesis highly improbable, where as those time scales fall within scope for my speculation.

Anyhow, your arrogant retort completely overlooks the fact that I was speculating rather than correlating (which is pretty clear if you go back and re-read my post). I never once pretended to know the reasons, I just presented a potential alternative motive, then quickly brushed it into the same group of assumptions as the other suggestions that have been posted (re: "whatever the reasons"). Kaiwai's theory, on the other hand, was presented as fact - and hence my "false correlation" comment.

Next time please read the subtleties of language before making your accusations.
