Apple v Samsung: Make It More Like the iPhone

Apple, iPhone, Technology

An internal Samsung document clearly shows that the Korean company systematically copying the the Apple iPhone.

The burden of proof in Apple v Samsung is increasingly lopsided. A new Samsung document submitted into evidence paints a damning picture of the company’s product review process, which compares their S1 smartphone to the iPhone and provides direct, Apple-design-specific recommendations for making their Galaxy handset better.

As you can see in the screen cap above, among other things, Samsung compares browser functionality in its 2010 S1 — Galaxy S, one presumes — with Mobile Safari on the iPhone and makes specific — make it more like Apple — recommendations. Moreover, it’s a long document that offers up page after page of such comparisons with the same conclusion again and again — make it more like the iPhone.

And, this latest damning Apple v Samsung news builds on and expands on an earlier revelation that the iPhone caused a “design crisis” at Samsung.

Things are looking increasingly bad — or funny (Conan mocks Samsung) — for Samsung in court as their own internal documents codify in words what we’ve known all along — Samsung blatantly and systematically copied the iPhone
