    The TIRFOLD cover is not apples at all, its been around long before apple came up with the idea, yet another idea apple *Stole* from other companies. Apple is just to ******* scared and worried that they are failing, yes they are failing they haven't come up with anything new they are selling you the same old **** over and over again.

    ^^ This is what is called logic, sound reasoning and fact. Everything else in here is nonsensical BS from fans.

    If you think Apple is "failing" you're an idiot
    If you think that Samsung's Galaxy phone sucks you're entitled to your opinion but, you're an idiot. May not be your preference, but it certainly doesn't suck.
    If you think these are the only 2 companies that do this, you're wrong.

    Conclusion, why do you care what phone someone else uses? Why do you care who sues who and what the motives are? Fact is that these products are available and if they are worth owning, have one and stop crying about what everyone else has.

    Here's the Apple store selling it.

    [QUOTE=khaf;6339719]I just had a thought Apple if you are worried about little Samsung's tiny market share in the tablet space stop giving them free press. I didn't check the Galaxy Tab out until all of these court battles started. I thought if they want to sue over broad patents the Tab must be good so I checked it out and now own one.

    Its nice that you own a Tab 10.1 as do I., but I have to ask you. why did it take lawsuits and publicity for you to even look at an Android tablet? I have never purchased a phone or tablet, Apple or Android without doing mega-research on the product, reading reviews and finally hands-on. I had already rejected the iPad 2 and all other Android Tablets and didn't buy until I had a chance to see the tab 10.1

    My decision was based on my own due diligence, not waiting somebody else to make up my mind for me.

    Samsung made their first tablet in 2006, 4 years before the iPad (many other companies years before that) Smart Phones have been around since the 90's. "App" Stores have been around since the 90's. mobile media players have been around since the 90's

    Everything apple does, was already done by their current competition as recently as 5yrs ago and as far back as 15yrs.

    So what if apple didn't make anything for 5yrs, these companies will continue to do what they've always done.

    Its really annoying, and kinda sad that there are still people like yourself that think that none of these things were around until apple made them and then suddenly everybody jumped on the apple bandwagon.

    You probably think that way because of your age, you yourself was probably born in the 90's so your ignorance is understandable.

    apple stole the iPhone name from Netgear/Linksys they stole the idea for look of their iDevices from a company called Braun. they stole the idea of an app store from Handango and Microsoft, EVERYBODY made a smart phone before them, LG is the company behind the capacitive touchscreen phone and their Prada phone hit the streets before they iPhone also the Samsung F700 was on the street before the iPhone.

    No need to be an *** and insult the guy. Not all of us can have a PhD in English like you professor genius.

    How so? This is a complete case with a back and foldable front cover.... how is this anyhting like the smart cover less the foldable front (that was available BEFORE smart cover was made. So you care to back up the BS you spewed or are you going to go with what you wrote?

    As said above, please show your proof to back up your claim of a "blatant rip". Seems to me YOU are the one that is blind as you can't tell the difference between a complete case and a simple cover for the screen.

    I would be if that was the case here but the two look nothing like one another. One is a case the other is a cover. put them side by side and if you can't figure out which is which you're a tard.

    iPad's smart cover which is produced/sold by Apple, the cases in the picture were not even produced by Samsung. I also wonder what specific patents Apple has for phone cases? Does it even has any phone cases in a first place or are they just patent trolling as usual?

    We should expect that for the next lawsuit Apple will produce iPad-style smart covers for Galaxy Tab and then sue Samsung for them!

    For those of you whining about Samsung ripping off Apple......they didn't. Looks to me more like they ripped off InCase considering they had the Convertible Magazine Jacket on sale BEFORE Apple created the "Smart Cover" and started selling it for the iPad.

    Wanna piss and moan about "this" company ripping off "that" company......Apple is just as guilty as anyone else. Reality check!
