Red face Apple Sues Samsung Electronics Over 'Galaxy' Phone, Tab

Quote:
SAN FRANCISCO (Dow Jones)--Apple Inc. (AAPL) sued Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (005930.SE, SSNHY) claiming the Korean electronics giant copied the look and feel of its popular iPhone smartphones and iPad tablet computers.

The lawsuit, filed on April 15 in the Northern District of California, alleged that Samsung's smartphones, such as the "Galaxy S 4G," "Epic 4G," "Nexus S" and its "Galaxy Tab" touchscreen tablet, violated Apple's intellectual property.

"Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple's technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products," the lawsuit said.

Representatives of Apple and Samsung did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The lawsuit is sure to complicate the relationship between the two consumer electronics giants. Samsung makes microchips that are used in some Apple products.
So it seems like Apple can't fight Samsung popularity in Android, and now is deciding to use dirty tricks in court, LOL

and Since when TouchWiz seems / feels like iOS? it has nothing alike

Apple is playing the cry baby now, as 2010 sales of android jumped like 200% way over taking iOS, and mostly was thanks to Samsung and all of its like of Galaxy S products.

way to go Samsung


This is what i'm referring to, check out the android activation video

Oh for the love of...

Well, at least they didn't copy teh suck aspects.

Wall Street Journal: online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20110418-711262.html

Engadget: engadget.com/2011/04/18/apple-sues-samsung-over-for-copying-the-iphone-and-ipad/

I hope this is sorted out by the time Canada is supposed to get the S2.

The WSJ source article is pretty flimsy, probably just temporary until they get more details, but this is a bit bothersome.

Cool, but it wasn't there before I looked. (edited post?)

I can't post any links (I guess my original post just fluked b/c there were not HTTPs in them), so we can have this closed on moved there if you want.

Thx for the details.

BTW, Engadget's article has been updated with more details, too.

Aw for the love of Pete.... Really?

Hmm... so Apple invented the icons then? or was it tapping on icons? Maybe they invented the idea of having icons on a desktop environment? Uh... uh... got it... having them lined up in a square grid array...

How can they claim the Nexus S is similar to an iphone? It has no features similar other than being a touchscreen, even that is different as it is curved. Are apple going to sue all companies for making phones? Hmmm, who made the first touchscreen phones...

The first touchscreen phone (that I can think of) was the Ericsson R380 - http://www.gsmarena.com/ericsson_r380-195.php
