Re: Don't you get it?
So they took the 3" screen of the LG Prada and put a 3.5" screen on instead. The Prada has a capacitive touchscreen (you know to allow for multi-touch and smooth scrolling), The Prada had an SD slot, it had MMS,
As for putting a faster chip in it, and that they had "full time internet" - they didn't even have 3G!
So by Samsung putting a 4.3" screen and Dual Core processors etc with an OS that can have widgets, desktop effects, notifications etc then Samsung are also making another leap ahead.
That is the point - each device comes along take cues from what has gone previously and leaps ahead with new ideas.
TVs look similar, cars look similar and have similar features, photocopiers look similar it's the same in all industries. It's not copying (apart from the photocopier, hopefully), it's evolving.
Would you want Apple to not be able to play video or music on the iPhone because someone else had done it first (innovation in platform and user experience) or allow them to send SMS, or MMS? Or do you think Apple shouldn't have been allowed to have apps, or icons, or e-mail or internet access on its device? Do you think that Apple should have been forbidden for having a slate type phone, with black border, a built in loudspeaker, a camera on the phone? Should Apple have been told that the can't have music playing in the Background tasks, that the phones shouldn't connect to WiFi?
No.. they shouldn't but by their (and your) reckoning. Someone has innovated and been the first to have those items in their devices before Apple and so they should be stopped.
All the industry benefits that Apple have received in software, design and facilities are/were welcome to them. Why can't they show the same courtesy to others? Because, for one simple reason - there is a war of attrition, an arms race of patents and money pots. Wear down the opposition by using the legal system and the pots of money.
It's wrong - no one wins. Nobody, not Apple, not the customer, not the legal system, No-one!
...Oh, apart from the lawyers.
