Apple is really good at taking other peoples ideas, improving or changing them slightly and then patenting it.
Obviously you did not follow android in the pre G1 stages... it was completely different, and after the iPhone came about it donned its current UI style.
...and to the others
Samsungs touchwiz is ment to look exactly like the iphone. That is exactly why it was designed that way because apple had the market share, and people wanted that style... if you honestly don't believe that then your anti-fanboyism goes way beyond fanboyism. The touchwiz UI is just marketing... it is to get the attention of Joe Schmoe consumer, and guess what. It worked. Most of us bought the Galaxy series for the specs than installed ADW or Launcher Pro. We are not the majority and I don't understand why many of you act like we are. Apple is sueing because people could get the iphone look without having to having to buy an iPhone causing a lose of sale.
It is standard business. That being said. I don't want them to win. The reason we have such schnazzy designed phones is because the iPhone was sexy, and that look still works.
If you try to say that when the iPhone first released you didn't drool then you are in denile. Nowadays it is just common place... but back then it was fairly original.
