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.

Given that Samsung's own attorney couldn't tell their tablet and the iPad apart in the courtroom - "Not at this distance, your honor." - I don't think the question is whether there was a Palm product that looked different, the question is whether Samsung has tried to totally copy the Apple designs. This new phone is just another clear example of them doing so.

They wouldn't be able to differentiate TVs, too; and yet you don't see companies going mental about "copying" of what is pretty much the only sensible layout and/or about protecting their "design" which boils down to removing any distinguishing design elements (and copying design language of, say, Braun)
