Looks like it could be a solid device, although I do question it's extreme similarity to TouchWiz...

Well, if Apple hasn't said anything about Samsungs blatant taking of the iOS UI (especially since Apple is lawsuit-happy), Samsung may very well keep mum about it too.
Either way I really wish companies would stop trying to be like the iPhone or mock it. If I wanted the iPhone, I'd have an iPhone.

Is anyone else having troubles getting the stills at the bottom of the page to load? I click on them and all I get is a mashed together version of the x and right arrow, but no image.
But in reference to the phone, I think this thing looks really good, so now we just need to hear if/when it's coming to the states.
Oh, for the love of ... Yes, the launcher is a grid of icons and words. Just like the iPhone -- and just about every other Android launcher. Actually, I like LG's a lot from when I had the Optimus Z.

Apple won't say anything about Samsung because Samsung provides them with hardware components, if Apple did then no more support from Samsung.
I can however see them going after LG, but I don't think Samsung's Touchwiz is the original Apple UI copycat.HTC Desire / CyanogenMod 7.1

But I think you're right about the Samsung thing, and even I don't think Apple is THAT stupid...

I think you are right on the money with apple and Samsung, but as far as LG goes i think that they did it because people myself included seem to like that particular setup. they don't do it to mock the iphone or try to copycat the iphone, but because it is well received by consumers. Apple was just the company that thought of that particular setup first, that doesn't mean anyone else who uses it is trying replicate it tit for tat, if anything it is a compliment to apple. And really how much more can they change the dock and four buttons aside from putting them up the right or left side of the screen or the top of the screen, and unless they make the dock slide diagonally how will they change that? its either gonna go right and left or up and down. you guys should really consider these things before you go bashing LG for copying apple when all they have really done is create an amazing device.
