Apple is copying samsung ----- It took 4 years for apple to catch up to the I9000 Samsung Galaxy S.

Yes, it took them 4 years to lower their quality to Samsung's grade of plasticks.
But Apple still haven't reached THAT level. Never will. No one will :P

Samsung made affordable but good phones out of plastic.
Apple is making CHEAP but Crappy phones out of plastic. So i agree with you, It will take them a long long long time to reach samsungs level.

The millions of people who bought the Galaxy S series will agree. I got my I9000 back in the day for only $6 per month on a 24 month contract. Thats $6 for the phone + 20min Talk time + 100mb of data and 25sms. In my country, Nobody even considers Apple.

Oh I see.. the C stands for color of iPlastic, but the boxes looks much cooler than it. I think this iPlastic would not electrify people like aluminium does.

"Accidentally" I think Apple encourages product leaks to draw attention.
