Facts don't matter to these guys. In their twisted minds no matter what Apple does it sucks and Apple is always wrong.

What I say stands. Android had zero tablets on the market before the iPad. Samsung just shamelessly copies Apple

Thats nonsense...an iPad is just a bigger iPod Touch, and an iPod Touch is just an iPhone without Celular bands, and an iPhone is just a phone with a touc screen... And Apple certainly did not invented cellphones, Apple did not invented touchscreens, or cameras, or cellular bands, or galleries, or music, or apples... The iPhone wouldn't exist if there were not other cellphones at the moment...coming from Nokia, Ericsson, Motorola, etc. It's just a chain and nothing more... At the end it is not about who created what... It is about who implements the creation in a better way... That's why Apple is totally scared of Samsungs' size, power, and technology.

And let's not forget that Microsoft and Blackberry have had smartphones out for years before Apple decided to come along. The Windows ones had touch screens.

Guess Apple decided to copy Microsoft. :D

I didn't realize stealing was required when you manufacture it...
I guess if I were to own a large manufacturing company that produced glass windows and sold it to a wholesaler, I must let the wholesaler know that I will also be selling the glass windows? lol...
Also, before you get start typing away, software can be done by anyone. It's why people buy hardware and not software. Software is an intangible. Owning rights to a "software" doesn't really mean much as it can be easily distributed and altered through technology. Only way to actually own it is to keep it for personal/private use.

if you look it up android was bought by google in 2005 so in all reality the iphone is copying android.

and where would the world be without stealing things anyway? video games steal from each other, cars do, tv shows do, clothes do (they all use cotton or polyester or silk dont they?) all things steal from something else at one point or another

Let me try to understand this fandroid logic. Android development started in 2003 I believe. So anything that came out after 2003 was invented by android?

And how could iPhone copy android in 2007 when there were no android phones to copy?

under development? yes, but what could they have stolen if there was nothing on the market to steal ideas from? o i know, a magical apple fairy broke into the HQ where android was being developed and stole to prototype plans right?? a lil Cold War action going on yes??? this discussion is just getting rediculous

The Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 is an outstandingly beautiful device. One of their tablets will be on my list in the future.
I played with my friend's iPad (because oddly enough majority of my friends are iFans) and it was nothing special. I didn't want it and I didn't want to keep it.

Galaxy Tab looks EXACTLY like an iPad. What impresses you about it if the iPad doesn't impress you?

Yeah, because if it's a blg rectangle and black, it MUST be a copy. :rolleyes:

Funny, I don't remember seeing arguments like that when Apple Powerbooks were black and looked like PC laptops. I guess Apple didn't copy that. Now if one says you can't really copy a form factor, then I'd agree and you'd have no argument against other tablets. :p

I'm mainly speaking about the UI. If you've used apple before you'd know they have the same UI which is a screen with apps filling the entire space, nothing special about that. Other tablets give you the option of placing both apps and many different variety of widgets to make personalization a focus. I think that's awesome... but maybe that's just me. But there's also a difference in design as well. Slightly bigger screen with better resolution and the shape forms more rectangular with slightly more curved edges while the ipad is closer to a box. Subtle differences? sure but I notice these.

Not to mention expandable memory with sd

Widget is same as an app just a little larger and loads in the background sometimes. Don't see a big difference there in look or functionality.

uh... no. You obviously have either not used a widget before or don't know what the purpose of widgets are. You can do so many tasks on your home screen without having to click a single app. Why would I put an oversized app to fill up the space of my home screen... I don't think so. There's a huge difference.
and sorry if you don't see a big difference in design, I am a rather strict critic when it comes to design in phones and tabs. of course all are mainly opinions so that shouldn't matter to anybody much, just me.

Troll? Can you define what you mean by that? Is stating my opinion about a products design provocative, inflammatory, or off-topic? no. And I don't post comments in every thread stating negative comments about android OR apple everywhere I go unlike some.

My cousin has a Samsung Galaxy Tab too, gotta say its abit better than my Asus Transformer. When I pick up people's ipads and turn it on, they all look the same. Theres the safari icon there...and video icon here, theres just no sense of individualism whatsoever, this goes with the iphone and ipod touch aswell. This was ultimately the reason why I bought theTransformer. When I look at my friends android phones and tablets, they all look different. They have widgets, themes and backgrounds to go with their personality. Once Im bored I can completely change the layout to my liking, I think its great to have choice.

the ipad is nothing but a glorified app launcher. why do you think it runs so smoothly? it doesnt have to use any real processing power.
