PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Thorsten Heins, BlackBerry's CEO: "Apple did a fantastic job in bringing touch devices to market ... They did a fantastic job with the user interface, they are a design icon. There is a reason why they were so successful, and we actually have to admit this and respect that. History repeats itself again I guess ... the rate of innovation is so high in our industry that if you don't innovate at that speed you can be replaced pretty quickly. The user interface on the iPhone, with all due respect for what this invention was all about is now five years old." Ironic, perhaps, that this comes from a BlackBerry CEO, but that doesn't make him wrong - although I'm sure the usual suspects will claim that it does.

They're suing Samsung because they genuinely feel their IP has been violated.


I have strong doubts about any "genuine feelings" when it comes to Apple.

Ah, the classic OSNews-ian reply-to-two-words-of-an-entire-comment trick. Good to know you still got it.

Well, he did motivate why he has these strong doubts.

Oh wait, he didn't.

Why only Apple? Samsung "genuinely feel" that they don't copy anyone. Do you believe them?
