    I have to admit, when I first saw the samsung phone on a TV advertisement I thought "how do they get away with it?".

    I agree. They look similar but not totally alike. The closest resemblance can be seen in the Galaxy S due to its Home button and front facing camera placement. The Galaxy Tab does have a standard set of Android buttons which the iPad lacks. As for the software looking similar to iOS, that's Google's problem. Go deal with them if you don't like it, not Samsung.

    >>implying the iPhone is original

    Please, Apple, there were dozens of touch screen based smartphones before your precious phone, and your design is not original, I can assure you!

    Actually, the TouchWiz interface made by Samsung really feels like iOS. But hey, Apple doesn't have the monopole for rectangle and black devices, with a menu with icons arranged in a grid, no ?

    Not ballsy, just cocky. But apple can get away with just about everything in their products, so maybe they just think they can do the same in court. They've sued Nokia over this too.

    I have an ipod touch and a Samsung hd tv which are currently squaring up to each other [​IMG]

    OT: not sure what Apple want to achieve from this lawsuit. Maybe throw their weight around like Sony, but towards other companies?

    I've always preferred Samsung over Apple products anyways. So really, apple can piss off for all I care.

    "copying the design"
    You might as well sue everyone that ever copied the first flip phone. Or you know everyone who's ever created a sliding phone, they should get sued too.
