As for copying stuff, there are two links (Apple, Google) that lead to ideas that were stolen from WP 7.5 Mango
But in all fairness, the features in either iOS or Android were either integrated far before the announced development and subsequent leaks of 7.5, or so far after the features were present on 7.5 phones shipping, that it's clear it's just an observe-and-adapt nature of what the competitor has already in deployment. I don't see what explicitly came out on android (or iOS) BECAUSE of a leak, as opposed to post-release mimicking. At least, I don't see a coincidental relationship between features leaked about 7.5, and then integrated into Android or iOS releases BEFORE 7.5 was launched.
Seems like they're just whining about the observe-and-adapt nature of competitive business. Hell, iOS5 blatantly copied the pull-down tray for notifications that had been in Android ever since its release (as an example).
RE chip-based hardware encryption--how is that relevant (I'm asking out of curiosity, not because I am implying it's irrelevant). Do many mobile hardware platforms support hardware encryption instructuion sets?
Do the other mobile browsers use compression now where they didn't before?
