Can We Be a Little Realistic With Sammy and Apple?

I keep seeing this picture posted in Samsung/Apple articles and its driving me nuts.F700-iphone_medium

Never mind that the date is wrong and that the F700 we see there is from 2007. Regardless, they must've done most of the development before the iphone was shown off, so its really a wash. What really matter is this:


Before the iphone, samsung had something original and kind of cool. After the iphone, samsung had something that looked very similar to an iphone. Its not about rectangles, or who did what first, its about copying. No one bought the F700, lots of people bought the iphone, so instead of making annother F700, Samsung tried to make annother iphone. So if you're on Samsung's side, don't post the F700, because it doesn't agree with you.
