    There aren't many ways to make a slate device but when it comes to ui touchwiz sure looks very similar to iOS in the menus

    I know they do. Just funny how they go at it. Then Samsung will sue them next to even the law suit.

    Apple is all about design, innovation and usability. Yeah they have the right to be "butt hurt", other companies are just ripping off the ideas apple works hard on and pays for. The innovation and design are a big chunk of what makes apple great. Samsung and the others need to innovate Their own ideas. They want to have an idevice killer, then they need to try to design an original device because making cheap carbon copy knocks offs isn't going to do it. Why does everything you post have to be so stupid? I swear your a 16 year old kid who hasn't learned to use his brain.

    I hope this means supplies from Toshiba, Sharp and other Japanese companies. Screen from LG and memory from Toshiba or Sharp.

    Also have you guys seen the Samsung D8000 TV remote? It looks like an iPhone 4. The Samsung Galaxy S is a total rip off the iPhone 3GS, even available in black or white.
    The normal Android UI is ok as it's icons aren't squares so resemble Symbian layout.
    As for the Galaxy Tab, well that's just a big iPhone 3GS but Galaxy Tab 10.1 isn't a copy, Honeycomb looks nothing like iOS and the design isnt like the iPad.

    Ya, Sony, Philips, Samsung, LG, Sharp... should all go to court against each other because all their LCD/LED TVs have strong similarities.

    They all have a display that look exactly the same, a thin bezel and a remote, not to mention a power cord ....

    Nothing amazing. It's business. If one business does it, EVERYONE has to do it.

    Yes i find similarities but i also noted that the iPhone 4 looked like an HTC inspired Droid phone...yes/no?? The 3GS was original in its shape and feel but the iPhone 4 looks like an HTC phone. I have owned all iPhone models and will continue to buy them based on the iOS not the cosmetics..that is all for now :]

    I'm so tired of Apple and their lawyers!
    Before iPhones a lot of phones looked pretty much the same, flip phones especially.

    Even though they'd never do it, I love Samsung to take all their component for iPhones and iPads and say bye bye.

    well all that may be true (samsung stealing the iOS layout) but Apple stole the App Store concept from the ripdev app installer which later became what's known today as Cydia. They're no different than anyone else.

    Who made the first flat screen? They should sue all manufacturers because all flat screens look similar.

    This lawsuit is dumb.
