And Samsung has actually copied ALOT from Apple

-The physical shape and look
-User Interface

I mean, sure touch screen phones will look similar, but this is a blatant copy IMO

So I take it that you didn't look past your nose at this?

Physical shape is definitely very similar. UI, not so much.

But isn't this the whole apple punchline?

Also there was discrepancies about the green phone logo, which I assume is to pick up and make call's ?
As has been said, that pic and colour combo has been used for a long time, as long as I can remember they have been on mobile phones.

I just don't get it, apple make something someone does better and then apple sues. I guess this is just the way the world rotates these day's.

Also as to all the fan boi fun of Apple made the mouse driven GUI, yeah ok. Ever heard of XEROX

It's a corporate patent game. If you work in the business environment you would understand. Apple wants a precedent or a fast settlement.

Hate to break the news to you all but this image is flat out wrong.

Seoul, February 8th, 2007 – Samsung today announced a new addition to its Ultra portfolio with the introduction of Ultra Smart F700. This revolutionary mobile phone will be showcased at 3GSM World Congress, the largest telecommunications event, next week. The F700 features unrivaled design and brings a superior range of multimedia experiences to consumers.

For those that can't be bothered, that phone in the image was announced AFTER the iPhone made its debut. Funny how every one believes that image to be true without thinking twice - despite the first grade spelling error - just because it's a picture.

Apple doesn't release sales figures beyond the first day sales because the rate at which they sell drops off so sharply after that first week. I'd guess the number of iphone 4 models to be around 10-15 million.

Butttt, it's kind of a loaded stat, because the iPhone4 is basically a weak Galaxy S in a different case
What? Apple doesn't release sales figures? LOL. Dude you need to research properly. Apple sold more iphones last quarter than samsung sold their galaxy s to date.

Samsung is the biggest company and most important company in South Korea. The SK government pretty much bows down to Samsung.

Apple has been using Samsung CPUs in its phones, the iPhone 4 is actually just a Hummingbird with a SGX535 instead of a SGX540.
Apple designs their SoC in-house through their acquired company called Intrinsity

Huh? Xoom was a flop just like the galaxy tab.

Well iOs includes ipod touch and ipads and apple tv..so it depends how you look at it. World market share..etc

Where's that put Apple next to Android? According to comScore, the Android OS's installed base is 23.8 million, thus iOS outreaches the Android platform by 59 percent.

“These data clearly illustrate the Apple ecosystem extends far beyond the iPhone,†said comScore senior vice president of mobile Mark Donovan in the report. “Though it's frequently assumed that the Apple user base is composed of dedicated Apple ‘fanboys', there's not a tremendous amount of overlapping mobile device access among these users."

I dont really understand why when it comes to comparing numbers, non-cellular devices are always left out. I guess it's because there are virtually zero non-cellular android products available? Any way you slice it, iOS has way more users period.

I was suggesting looking at it from another perspective. Since you are comparing A WHOLE SOFTWARE alliance (android) to iphone. So I suggested android vs iOs. Calm down.

Proof? Numbers? Give me something other than a statement I have to take your word for.
