New Blackberry looks like iPhone5!

I can only see one tiny picture so can't really tell what it looks like. Looks a bit more rounded on the corners, looks thicker and it's black and white but on my device the picture is tiny and won't enlarge so, with my shocking eyesight, I am none the wiser, lol.

If being rectangular and having rounded corners makes it look like an iPhone. then yes I guess it does. Otherwise I don't see the resemblance.

So, yes.

Or did you miss the essence of Apple's vast lawsuit against Samsung!

I glossed over it. I try not to waste my time with things as ridiculous as trying to patent a shape. =/

geek_suicidemonkey, Dec 16, 2:09 pm

yeah well, they cant patent the shape, so dont know why samsung lost in this case.

geek_nzoomed, Dec 20, 9:32 pm

that looks nothing the an iphone.

Looks like an iP5 to me without the home button, just as the article says.
I think Apple need to get a life if they think that everyone is copying them, all plasma TV's look the same too at a distance.

It's not just about individual elements, it's about hte whole look and feel of the user interface.

Funny, we've been here before too;

Think of the shit we'd be in if Pythagoras patented the triangle.

I wonder if RIM like Nokia have truly missed the boat.! Time will tell.!
Am thinking of the solid presence of Samsung now surpassing Nokia in Cell phone sales let aloneApple and smart phones ,with Android dominant.
Then there is Huewai still hanging in there and a future force to be reckoned with. And what about Google who now own Motoralla.!
Interesting times in a crowded market.
