Apple lawyers reveal massive 132-page internal Samsung document as proof of ‘slavish copy’ claims

“Apple presented a massive 132-page internal Samsung document that showed the South Korean firm comparing every inch of the iPhone with its early Galaxy S phone in its patent ruckus yesterday,” Brid-Aine Parnell reports for The Register.
“The internal Samsung report, translated from Korean, goes over every aspect of the iPhone and looks at how the equivalent feature of the [Galaxy S phone] matches up,” Parnell reports. “Unfortunately [for Samsung], it also says none-too-subtly that the S phone would really be a lot better if it was more like the [Apple iPhone].”

Parnell reports, “At every feature discussed, recommendations for improvement are given with reference to the comparison to the [Apple iPhone]. In the comparison of both phones’ icons, there’s also the direction to ‘Remove the feeling that iPhone’s menu icons are copied by differentiating design’ – which Apple is pretty much reading as backing up its allegations.”
