Despite your sarcasm, you're completely right about Samsung. Granted the Atrix had the fingerprint scanner but by all accounts, it was poorly implemented and garbage. Naturally Apple comes along and vastly improves the technology and makes it more accessible, just like they do with pretty much everything they release.
Apple hasn't released cheaper versions of their hardware. iPhone 5C is not the so-called cheap iphone analysts were clamoring for. It's a repackaged iPhone 5 in color, that's it. It's still quite expensive.
It's not surprising Samsung will continue to ride Apple's coattails. They did it with Motorola and the original Razr flip phone, with RIM and the Blackberry, and with Apple's iPhone.Edited by Gigatel - 9/12/13 at 3:50pm
