Not to be satisfied until all Android tablets are barred from every store on Earth, Apple has seemingly also filed a complaint in Germany against the Motorola Xoom although the details of the complaint are not readily apparent...

These guys are just total assholes who can't stand to not have full marketshare.
I was about a second away from an iPhone on my last upgrade, glad I didn't.

These tablets look exacty the same from the ui to the design. It is so blatent. Apple is defending themselves this is a good thing. Moto come up with a orginal tablet copying apple wont be the answer. Same thing to you samsung. On the other hand moto and samsung should look at htc for orginal ui and design. They do a much better job then the others. From now on i might just only use htc asus and apple the people who can acctually innovate!

Honeycomb looks like iOS....really...no, really it looks like iOS?
The Xoom has pure Honeycomb on it. I went over this a few months ago: icons and homescreen layout doesnt make up the entire OS.
Look at pics of the oom and iPad. The backs look different. the side views look different. Only thing Apple can be mad about with the Xoom is the borders and the color black, and using icons.

Touchwiz is the worst and so is the galaxy tab as far as copying goes. The xoom is bad thoughhttp://zollotech.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/xoom-and-ipad-ui-comparison.jpg. A bad one at that. I never said the back looks alike the xoom is so ugly it hurts. Htc and asus make an orignal tab why cant moto. There pathetic moto copy apple and sue them come on. Copying there features such as the app store i dont mond but the ui and design is not cool. Take a page frim htc and asus moto and samsung. Not only that but their tablets are better.

Look up the Modbook Pro and see who is copying who? Modbook is in fact fatter but beside that it look like an ipad. It was in 2009. Look up the HP Compaq TC1100. If you remove the color and the keyboard attachment it look like an ipad. It was in 2007.

The mod book is just a 15 inch macbook pro that was chopped upped. And yes i get it the hp had a touch screen. We aren't mad about the fact people had touch screen its about the fact of the design. They literally just copied apple and did a poor job at it.

You are saying they copy the design but clearly the design was standard for button less touch screen.

all iOS tablets look the same. you don't see them complaining do you?

Everyone should just stop copying apple, and that will solve everyone's problems.
38. wassup (Posts: 565; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)
or maybe apple should stop copying the designs of other companies, i suggest you look at the LG Prada, the first capacitive touch screen, and the first with the so called 'black slab design'.
They also copied off a design from a GPS unit that came out BEFORE the
iDiotPhone4 came out.
maybe apple should stop sueing other companies for copying, when THEY are the copiers in the first place.

You blind the prada is a brick. Yes i understand you think we are mad that moto used black. Its the design of the thing from its material to its proportions to the edges.

O yeah were not mad about them using a touch screen. Android did follow apple as most of their phones are touch screen which wasnt very popular pre iphone or very good. Apple is a trend setter. That being said its not copying them it just they are following apple's trend. They just sit around and are seeing what technologies apple is using and they used a touch screen so they used it to.

Its a brick the iPhone is work of art. Why do people assume we are mad about using the color black. That isn't it at all.

Like the front facing camera too right?
Who did Apple follow by using a front camera?
Who did Apple follow by using a touch screen? A capacitive one?
Who did Apple follow by making a phone?
Looks to me like Apple does it own share of following...

i agre with you biophone, on apple made touch screens popular, but it doesn't mean they should sue the heck out of anything that is challenging them in the market.

I'm really getting tired of Apple. There the p*ssys of tablet making. Eithier Steve Job needs to get laid or he is being a greety *sshole.
32. pete7625 (banned) (Posts: 86; Member since: 01 Jul 2010)
Apple defined the tablet, I think they have every right to get upset. Everyone needs to stop copying them.
39. biophone (Posts: 1962; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
Yes they do need to stop. Moto headquarters gameplan is copy apple and sell it to people who hate apple but wants the ipad. So they get the ipad copy the xoom.
33. jroc74 (Posts: 6013; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
Ok pete, I'll bite: what do you think other manufactures should do to not copy Apple? How would you design a tablet thats not a copy of the iPad?
Maybe you think they shouldnt make tablets at all? I wonder why Samsung doesnt sue LG over HDTV's...or sue ASUS over flat screen monitors...
The back of the Xoom looks....nothing......like an iPad...at ...all...
How come Apple are the ones right now suing over looks?
HP Touchpad....looks like an iPad from the front. The Xoom gets sued for I assume the front of the tablet...where's the Touchpad lawsuit?

Are you stupid? A 7 in vs a 10 in? Please look up the Modbook Pro and see that all touch screen tablet look the same.
59. biophone (Posts: 1962; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
No they don't look up the flyer and transformer. You just think we are mad about the fact it had a touch screen again as i just said not all tablets look the same the design of a tablet can alter tremendously. From the proportions to material to the edges to the shape to the ui. I wasn't even talking about screen size i said design are you stupid?
