Samsung says its new smartphone designs now part of a 5-year plan, not affected by Apple's lawsuits
There have been rumors that the Galaxy S III design is this exact way in order to fend off any potential lawsuits by Apple regarding its chassis, as the grandfather of the Galaxy S line is experiencing.

Samsung's Vice President of design Chang Dong-hoon, however, seems to be pretty entertained by that idea. Speaking to reporters at the 2012 Seoul Digital Forum, he stated that Samsung's smartphones form and shape have not been influenced by the ongoing lawsuits with Apple.

"Our change in smartphone design is part of a five-year plan, not a sudden turn-around," claimed the executive. He reiterated once again that the soapy shape of the Galaxy S III has been decided on after trying out hundreds of possible scenarios (and sticking with the home key in the last minute, we hear). Well, if those Galaxy S line designs are now part of a 5-year plan, we are curious what's in it for next year.

Whooppieee, Unfortunately with the price of data plans skyrocketing and capping and tiering by cell carriers, the promise of smart phones is now dead.

Why do you keep saying that? Smartphones aren't going anywhere. In fact they're growing like crazy in market share.

I predict that in 5 years Apple's share of the market will be similar to Rim's today...

After the lawsuits Samsung has had to change around their gameplay of making their phones iPhone replica's.
