Samsung’s designs from 2006 were similar to the iPhone but well before Apple released it

Samsung and Apple are going head to head this week and we’ve shown you trial briefs from both companies (Samsung / Apple). The bottomline in this case is that Apple feels Samsung copied them. The bottomline to me is that it’s really a joke that they are spending all this money to “fight over rectangles” as quoted by Samsung’s Chief Product Officer Kevin Packingham.

Furthermore, Samsung will show the court the designs above, which were possibilities for the Summer of 2006, well before the iPhone was released in 2007. In fact one of these ended up being the Samsung F700, and believe it or not, Apple went after Samsung for it only to retract when they learned it was designed before the iPhone. Then there is the whole discussion on if Apple copied Sony. This is all one big joke and the attorneys are laughing all the way to the bank. Hit the break for another image, but this time it’s Samsung’s proposed OS. Look similar?

    Damn dude, that thing looks almost identical to a modern iPhone, yet existed before it. Apple has some explaining to do themselves…

    Can sammy prove they designed it in 2006? If so, why didn’t they release anything with touchscreen until after 2007? Interesting.

    Really? You deleted my post? Was it because I was right? This is why I will always say this site is not real journalism. I only stick around to bust you every time you are wrong. Pathetic.
