With regards to Apple's lawsuit legitimacy, if anyone has any doubt that the modern smartphone market is a giant iphone ripoff, I propose to you a graphic showing what phones looked like before (when everyone incl Motorola and HTC, insisted that a smartphone without a real keyboard would NEVER work) and after the iphone. It's no one's business how much money they are or aren't making. Bottom line is the design is their patented IP and it's being ripped off harder than the lightbulb.



Also, before/after ipad

you think everyone is ripping off the iPhone, guess you never seen the LG Prada phone that was introduced in 2006 & then sold in Janaury 2007, before the first iPhone was even for sale, it was a large display touch screen phone http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LG_Prada and that isn't the only one, there were large touch screen phones back in the early 90's as well, just not practical & affordable at that time.

also the pic comparing tablets, you choose pics of PC tablets, even PC tablets today are still bigger than normal tablets, and besides Apple didn't invent tablets that are small, haven't you seen 2001: Space Odyssey, they had flat rectangler tablets in that movie, what about Star Trek, the list goes all.
