    Wow. I am somewhat impartial to iOS and Andriod. Theres a lot of stuff that both are doing right, and i think its important that people have a right to choose a cheaper form of smart phone (and arguable to a degree, better). I dont think this is a good turn for the mobile industry.

    EDIT i know i posted this and stuff but i dont know if i believe this. Can someone confirm this? What happened? I dont understand.

    I think this is when the government should step in, this reduces the amount of options. And what about people who have already bought these phones? My friend just got one...

    This isn't how you help the economy or strive to make better products, by literally eliminating the competition by legalities...

    And then people would bawww about how its government socialism and undermining one patent/copyright could leave all copyrights/patents in jeopardy.

    But this is rather silly, you'd think Apple would get bad rep for doing this but people will still buy their shit. Hell, the people who buy their shit are actually probably giddy with joy at depriving another consumer of an option.

    If the whole Android ship really sinks though then HELLO WINDOWS PHONE.

    I was wondering whom Apple would target next...retards. Even with the death of the egotistic Steve Jobs (with a blow) Apple don't shut up.

    "Oh someone is selling better than us and might be a threat in the long run, lets find a stupid reason to sue and get them banned because you know...we own the US Government."
    Yeah like literally, Apple has more money than the U.S Government or so I heard.

    I think it's time the world sued Apple for using a fruits name as theirs.

    I'm already a big fan of the metro design language. I wish everything I had were like it. I have wanted a windows phone for a long time, but Verizon has to have a data plan for any good phone...

    I'm not surprised. They already patented the rectangle.

    I think people should stop supporting apple because of this. xp
    Apple is being a sore loser ever since android was released, it's like windows and linux, but microsoft doesnt try and ban all linux os...

    I can see it now-

    The defender, Apple, against The Creator.
    God is suing Apple for stealing the rights to a fruit he created, while Apple claims to have created the fruit.
    Lol.

    its not going to become a monopoly. they just have to come up with something different. i'm sure they are creative enough.


    i'm sure htc would be doing the same if they came up with iOS and apple came out with the iphone running on android.

    Seriously? Is acting like children really the answer here? Apple? What the hell is going through your tiny minds, that makes it seem okay to do this?

    Well, if you live in USA, you could always import one. I also notice that it's USA only and that doesn't apply to Canada.

    So, they have ACTUALLY patented something, they're losing money on it thanks to people copying their ideas, and you guys actually see Apple as the bad guy here.

    ...ooooh weeeell.
