    Samsung's New Attempt at Craftiness is to Patent a Phone That Looks Like an iPhone


    We aren't sure what to make of this new patent from Samsung. We can't figure out if they think they are being clever, or if they are just hoping it will somehow sneak under the radar at the patent office. Ultimately, it could end up being a colossal waste of time and resources for both the patent office and Samsung.

    As you can see from the pic above, Samsung is trying to patent a new smartphone design, but there isn't actually anything "new" about the design at all. In fact, it's obviously a facsimile of the iPhone. We can clearly see the sharper and more defined edges. The round home button is also a dead giveaway. If you stuck this into an Apple story, no one would think twice about it being an old Apple patent for their earlier generation iPhones.

    To be clear, Samsung actually applied for a number of new patents on several devices. This one in particular stood out for its obvious chicanery.

    Sound off with your thoughts on this baffling move by Samsung.

    Samsung should drop crazy acts like this and simply fire Apple as a customer. No more glass for their phones unless they pay five times as much as they used to pay. Take it or leave it Apple. The increased cost will send a message to Apple and their customers.
