» Jim Dalrymple on the Apple/Samsung trial

The cell phone and nascent smartphone industry hadn’t changed in years when Apple showed the iPhone in 2007. If developing a new way of doing things was so easy, why didn’t Samsung do it earlier? Why did they wait until after Apple showed the iPhone to develop their phones?

Apart from the legality of Samsung’s “homages” to the iPhone and iPad, this fundamental truth — that Apple reinvented the smartphone market — drives Apple’s critics absolutely bonkers.
