27 July, 2012
One of the designs show influence of early Sony designs and the other looks like an iPod Mini.

As for copying... you will say apple invented the wheel as well. Android is far more customizabile than that brick , having that is just like sharing the same woman.

Im a samsung fan and i work around phones everyday i dont like apple as imo they are overpriced. yes samsung may have had a few devices like apple products but to be honest who cares i see equal amounts of both samsung and apple devices selling. Also if you look at their latest designs like the s3 they are pulling away from the apple look. at the end of the day they should both stop sueing each other.

Omg.. Now samsung drag sony with they patern war issue with apple. Steve job admire sony design. when you admire someone, you always try to be "look alike" and i read in xperia blog, the first question steve jobs ask their designer " what will sony do??" means he really respect sony as his idols with the iphone future design were inspired by sony. Samsung can do the samething inspired by iphone, but no need to come out with silly commercial like people standing next to apple store and sheep?? Samsung get all media attention by starting a war in patern. And that help them a lots in sales. But if apple just ignore what samsung did, will galaxy flagship will still selling like a hot cakes?? If you are in bisnes, respect are the main key.

samsung is finally running out of ideas that their excuses now are so lame.

like GSMArena said, it's a weak argument.

Samsung: hey Apple! you're just another copycat! see? you copied designs from phones that NEVER actually existed on the market.

epic samsung fail. (facepalm)

Samsung: WAAHHHH, you never even invented those things like you said, stop suing us.

Apple: Erm, we never said we did. You made that up. Get back to work on our phones, bitch.

Samsung: Oh okay.

it doesnt matter who copy who, knowledge is build on those came before... so does design.

This nonsense in court is only making evil lawyers fatter by the day and not the civilization or technology to advance an inch!

facepalm* if they want to sell this device, it must be less than $400 or how about $300 or $200...or why don't Apple just design every all over again.
