Apple claims Samsung knew its Galaxy line took its design cues from Apple and was warned by Google

0. phoneArena 25 Jul 2012, 19:08 posted on

An unredacted (no blacked out spots) copy of Apple's trial brief shows that when the Apple v. Samsung patent battle goes to trial next week, the Cupertino based tech firm will claim that Samsung knew that its designs copied those belonging to the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad...

I'm so sick of Apple how incompetent they are. Apple knew that they can not out compete Android market. This is the only way to slow Samsung down. Let me tell you Apple, your next iPhone 5 is 4" screen. Is it only 4" screen? no other flavor?

Apple has 80% of the industry profits so I'd say they're competing just fine.

But Apple will come down fast and will a hold some niche market share only against total domination of Android, just like Mac against Windows.

The truth is a closed ecosystem can never compete with a open 1.

you have to be stupid to say that galaxy s looks like iPhone,they don't even look same,fat and bulky iPhone vs slim and stylish galaxy s,take a look and you will see the differences clearly.

Maybe it looks similar to the outside U.S. model - the Captivate was different - Vibrant may have looked similar....

I think this is Apple's fault: They use such generic design that not only SS but many other manufacturers also have such generic design and similar to Apple's. I think Apple pays tonnes of money to push their petty patents through USPTO and that why only Apple has such ridiculous patents like "disappearing the scroll bar" or "slide to unlock" or "rounded rectangle".

If Apple wants to be different they should put their logo in front or use some other distinctive unique features. Samsung has their logo on the front and that's the way to go.

I agree that iPhone was revolutionary and changed everything just as Steve Jobs said. So not only SS but the whole mobile industry changed b-c of it.

But should Apple cling to that glorious history and not allow others to compete and hinder innovation with their "rounded rectangle" patent?

Samsung must cut the business deals with Apple and go all out on Patent Wars with Apple. Lost or win, right or wrong Apple wanted to shutdown Samsung mobile business.

That's why Samsung need to recruit more skillful designer... I'm sick of these design now... I would rather have rim playbook or Sony tablets instead of these...

APPLE is making it obvious that they are afraid of competition! Don't act like loosers....after all phones design gonna look similar anyways! Get over it and lunch an iphone 5 that beats Samsung galaxy s3 hand down. It appears to me that Apple is agreeing that Samsung is better, though they are! after all they produce more that 60% of iphone's parts...

Actually Samsung is afraid of competition so they just copy Apple instead of coming up with their own designs.

Any other company would sue Samsung as well to protect their hard work

People may have different opinions about this case, but 1 thing is clear: customers (including iPhone users) are the winners when SS bring the fight to Apple, SS products are much more powerful and cheaper too. Those who value refined experience can always choose iPhone.

Actually, typing actually in front of every stament you make doesnt actually make your actual post sound any smarter. If anything it actually makes you come across like a tool. Actually.

I find myself clever enough to tell the big differences between Samsung and Apple phones. Rounded rectangular design patent is too vague.

The funny thing is, while they're complaining about stealing ideas apple is moving the iphone 5 up to 4" inch mark... That is an android idea coming from apple fans themselves! Im not saying apple is wrong because even the article implies that google tried to warn them......So that is saying alot and sounds like its in favor for apple here. BUT apple can not act like they're aren't doing any "idea" stealing as well.....Android is so creative and customizable that it is very hard for even the dedicated apple fans to not ask for a bit of what android has been doing for years now. A bigger screen is something obvious and something EVERYONE requires these days, the only thing is if apple fans see the other stuff they are missing out on,(no restrictions, customization, Jellybean lol) then it is going to be tough for apple to stay in the game. Apples move to the 4 in mark is clearly a way of surviving the onslaught of what android is bringing and continues to bring.......To put it simple, android is only going to get better and better as time goes on and it will be really hard to keep up with them without copying there style in one way or the other...
