Spot the iPhone
Apple says that the external design of these phones will confuse people, and make them think it's an iPhone.
Yes, these two phones included.
And no, I'm not kidding. You can read their complaint for yourself, where the GEM and the Nexus S are both mentioned. If you think either of these is an iPhone, please say so. I promise the rest of us will point and laugh. A lot.ಠ_ಠ

So according to Apple, all other smartphones are supposed to me triangle-shaped abacuses?
Yeah, the Galaxy S looks like an iPhone. And yeah, Touchwiz looks just like iOS when you open the app drawer. However, Apple, when you included the Nexus S in this lawsuit, it lost all validity.

I will admit, my Galaxy S Vibrant has been confused for an iPhone. My Nexus S? Everyone tells me it's " a HTC" , apparently Android can only be HTC or Motorola, I think Apple got to people they don't realize that Android devices could even be made by Apple ( hell Google wouldn't sue xD). Anyways, I think Apple has a slight point on the Vibrant but not about the Nexus S and this other device, the touchwiz interface has been around longer than the iPhone( I believe, please correct me on that). Also how can you own this style of managing applications? Hell WebOS does the same thing. However, the difference between the Vibrant and the iPhone 4 is that you won't see productive widgets on an iPhone. You will see em on a Vibrant for sure, cause the home screen ISN'T THE APP DRAWER.
Sent from my XoomDevices: Samsung Nexus S 4.0.1(alpha, of course), Samsung Vibrant 2.3.5 CM7 w/ Glitch Kernel v13, broken HTC Dream, and a Google Cr-48 with Ubuntu 11.10

Re: Spot the iPhone
This is a comparison between an (you know which phone and that phone which will not be named) - ok its an iphone from 2008 and an LG prada that was released in 2007 January.
Rather similar dont you think ?...looks like LG built a time machine and traveled to the future to copy the iPhone so they cold release a similar looking phone One year earlier...
(please tell me you got my sarcasm ?)
And all this time I've been wondering why Apple hasn't filed a law suit against LG.
