Further 132 page report shows that Samsung did copy the iPhone

In what is most likely the most damning evidence against Samsung’s copycat-ism, Apple has revealed an internal report created by the Galaxy makers that virtually proves on its own that the Korean tech giant did copy the popular iOS device.

Having compared an early version of its Galaxy user interface with the iPhone, Samsung wrote a huge 132 pages comparing every aspect of the two different platforms. In virtually every aspect, there are “directions of improvements” written at the bottom which virtually all state “do it like the iPhone.” It’s clear proof that the company wasn’t satisfied with its own design work and instead wanted to copy Apple’s way of doing things.

There’s a lot more of this, covered in excellent fashion by Ina Fried and John Paczkowski over at AllThingsD. The site has been covering all the action from the court case all week. The link in the previous sentence leads to a document that contains all 132 pages. Before making a decision on whether or not you think Samsung did copy Apple after all, you should definitely check it out. To me it’s plain as day that Samsung ripped off the iPhone in more ways than one.

    Honestly, I couldn’t care less about Samsung unless I’m discussing Apple.

    like any company you compare you device to the capabilities of the popular device, saying the device is copied is wrong, they compares their device to the iphone to see what they lacked and what they needed. The user experience as they say was important, amny companies do this they compare popular devices or popular products and try to make their devices better in terms of user experience.

     @Tuliomesa82 Like Apple did with NC, which is a sort of rip-off of Android’s system.
    Someone who says Apple did that is a jerk, but they changed – for the better – some stuff.

    Do you know what’s funny? Everything Apple did was perfect for Samsung. So, why are they trying to sell their fish? I mean, they don’t even believe that what they’re selling is better, and this is a proof.

     @PedroCst Nope. NC is actually software Apple licenses (indie developer). The project was originally a Palm project that was not patented. The original Palm developers work for Apple now btw. This is a common misconception that Apple “stole” NC from Android. Android stole it from Palm if you really want to get technical. But if its not patented, there is no “stealing”.
