Even CNet said it was a sorry excuse for the next iPhone. And they are pretty high up there in tech reviews.

Idc what anyone gets. But getting an iPhone cause everyone else has it and says its great, isn't how I look at things


Also I just shit, it was in the shape of an apple, am I getting sued?

Hopefully...and not for money, but for not allowing you ever again type out the words "Apple, iPhone, Cupertino, iPad, iPod" ever again lol.

If that's the scenario, what do you think *could* happen here:

Let's not even get started on that one. lol. I don't know if Apple has any beef with Nokia, none that I've ever heard, but if a lawsuit happens, pretty sure that Apple would win that one, too.
I just think they're taking advantage of the flawed patent system because they are having a hard time competing. It's perfectly legal,it's business, but it's distasteful.

Most of the lawsuits against apple are in response.

As for the phone itself, it's all right but it's just not anything revolutionary or special. Slightly bigger screen, faster processor, 4g. Eh. It's an upgrade from the iPhone 4s but they are playing catch up. Not leading like they used to.

I disagree about being a leader in the industry. Everyone wants a piece of the pie that apple owns. Everyone wants to be more like apple. It's the honest truth.

You say it is distasteful that apple is using the patents system. Disagree again. Why do you think all of these companies are frantically battling to buy every single patent from Kodak and other companies? Because they know if anyone uses them and they own them, they can now sue and make money.

Essentially, if Apple does win the money and other crap against Samsung, what will happen, aside from the lump sum of $ owed, Samsung, possibly Android as a whole, would have to pay a portion of their phones' price/profits to Apple for the patents the violated. If they cease, and make their own versions of said patent cases, they'd get just the lump sum.

Ideally, Samsung/Android would develop their own version of the 'bounce-back' feature and a few other things that were the source of the lawsuit in the Android OS.

...and as far as the Nokia Lumia, if I were a judge or on a jury, it's clear where they got almost the complete design of that entire phone line, esp when put side by side to the Nano. Just another example. If you developed that design, wouldn't you want to make money on it?

Now, Apple get ideas and designs from other companies as well, no argument there, but their designs aren't almost exactly like others. That is the difference. All these companies get ideas from each other (human nature), but Apple has been much less likely, I think, to blatantly copy the complete design of any other phone. they usually get a few design cues, if that, and then make their own version of the device.

Here is an example: how many companies are blatantly copying the MacBook Air? --> Acer, Asus, Samsung, Toshiba, etc. Seriously, the samsung is a 90% literal copy of the air. up to the bolts they use on the bottom of the metal case. I'm serious. I looked at them. Same bolts. Same hinge design that Apple has been using for 5-6 years already, same bezel on the screen, same keyboard, same clamshell screen, same taper on the edges, etc.
