Still dont see why on earth sony wanted to make a iphone. Apple wants to DESTROY ANDROID yet they still make some parts for them while Apple BANS the competition. They won't even get the sales if they actually design the iphone. Sony makes one of the best looking Android phones.

Wait a minute.... Didn’t Sir Jony Ives get a design award for the iPhone 4 with this exact design? Shouldn’t they take back the award because it is obviously clear that he didn’t really come up with the original design?

@ A-P-P-L-E

You know what?! I am actually ROFLING on the floor in real life now, after seeing all of your comments. WHY?

YOur comments make no sense.

Nonsensical sentence to defend apple.

Apple addict.

NO ONE WILL GIVE A DAMN ABT YOU AND PLEASE GET A LIFE!

shameless sheep. Must be the black sheep amongst the white sheeps (meaning odd one out)

Talking to apple fans like you is just like teaching a cat how to drive a car. You just force the reasons.

G E T A L I F E !

Wow.. you cant get more direct than this evidence. Even judge koh would have a hard time saying that samsung should be punished for copying apples look when its obvious it wasnt apples look at all. If/when tyis case comes down on samsungs side, sony shoukd use the same evidence to take apple to task. If aple thinks "looking similar" is worth 2 billion in fines, then sony should sue apple for 10 bllion for a complete rip off.

you cant sue samsung for copying sony when apple is trying to prove they copied them. If samsung knew any of this before hand, they would have brought it out the first time Apple tried to take them to court over rectangles and stopped the whole thing. Sony can only sue Apple for the direct rip off. They cant sue everyone else that looks a little like apple. too many degrees of separation.

No no no..

You have to remove the as well....

How in the world could Apple sue based off this Sony design? If anything, Apples lawsuit would get tossed and replaced by Sony.

Apple looks stupid right about now.

Look at your s**tty comments. Does any of those makes any sense? Why do you have most dislikes? You should have learned by now that you are the one with only 1 neuron in your brain.
