Why would I bring up the shapes copyright? Is that a serious question? They're all afraid of competition, they went out and copyrighted shapes...

They sued Samsung for a rectangular phone with rounded edges. They can quite literally sue every phone maker on the planet if they choose to. And I'm the one who has no grasp of real world business....

You're not very bright are you?

Let me make it easier to understand. How often do you see Sony sue Panasonic for making rectangular flat screen TV? Never. Is the shape and dimensions of Sony's TV patented? Yes it is (OMG THEY ARE COPYRIGHTING SHAPES?!) but so are many other components of the TV like the antenna, RF input, display etc which all contribute to the OVERALL functionality of the TV. Now if Panasonic were to design a flat screen TV that had the same shape, dimensions and functionalities to the exact degree as the Sony TV, then Sony would have a right to claim patent infringement because their Panasonic is making money off of Sony's copyrighted product.

Apple's legal claim isn't on a rectangular touchscreen phone with features like pinch to zoom, but on how their features on the their touchscreen phone such as how their pinch to zoom reacts as well as how fine-tuned it is. And that is what Samsung infringed, and that's why Apple was able to win a billion dollar lawsuit.

Apple doesn't OWN the patent for a rectangular rounded touch screen phone....or if you want me to dumb it own for you even further, Apple down't OWN the shape known as a rectangle. They own a patent for THEIR rectangular phone DESIGN and it's SPECIFIC functionalities.

It's HILARIOUS that you actually believe they can sue every other phone making on the planet for rectangular phones. Because every car company can sue each other for designing body frames that support circular wheels right? Muppet.

Christ, please don't ever consider going into any occupation involving patents.

Gentlemen, if you lose today you will continue to be the best in the world but if you win today you will be eternal.

Re: Apple iPhone 5 + iOs6

Gee, I wonder why the thread is getting rattled?... A strong essence of illogical stubbornness reigns down upon us.

I don't fully understand how so many parents go out there and buy such phones for their kids. Especially in the area I live. I understand their marketing schemes are fantastic, and if anything that's an understatement. However, what kid is going to require a 600-700 phone so much so that an 80 couldn't do? iOS6 looks good though. Really good. I'd be happy to see such an update to an aging 3GS if I had one.

The design of the SII is absolutely ridiculous. I've seen them regularly and honestly still had to glance three times from the side (couldn't see logo) at a colleague's phone of mine during lunch to finally notice it was not an iPhone, so he could buy this app I showed him.

Re: Apple iPhone 5 + iOs6

It's cheaper by quite a bit, iPhones have the highest mark up out of any other phone in the industry, they make something like $700 from every iPhone sold that is crazy.

Re: Apple iPhone 5 + iOs6

Apple should be embarrassed for releasing this phone. Its a 4SXL, half inch bigger with 4G, real innovative. Galaxy S3 and Lumia 920 blow this thing out of the water.

DID YOU NOT GET THE MEMO SON?

Re: Apple iPhone 5 + iOs6

In terms of screen size? Sure but I prefer holding the iphone 4s in my hand rather than some giant slab galaxy note.
