They will be if Steve Jobs (from the grave) has anything to do with it. A very good read on the ongoing litigation between Apple and Google over Google using stolen patents to produce Android phones.

How Steve Jobs could haunt Android - Therese Poletti's Tech Tales - MarketWatch

Couple good quotes from Steve Jobs from the article:

“I’m going to destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product,” Jobs told Isaacson. “I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this.”

“I don’t want your money. If you offer me $5 billion, I won’t want it. I’ve got plenty of money. I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, that’s all I want,”

“Our lawsuit is saying ‘Google, you f---ing ripped off the iPhone, wholesale ripped us off.’” He also said he was willing to spend “every penny of Apple’s” then-$40 billion in cash to “right this wrong,” and he vowed to “destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product.”

I don't get what they stole? They made something similar to another product, who cares? Guess all the knock off cereal brands better watch their butts.

This has been going on for a while now. Apple threw the first punch against HTC over a year ago. They even tried this a LONG time ago against Palm. But Palm basically said "**** you, have you seen our 20 year patent history? We've been making patents on touchscreen devices since before there were touchscreens."

The same thing is happening with HTC and Samsung now. Apple has violated just as many patents as Android has, so the lawsuits aren't going anywhere.

Many many companies have cases like this. nothing will come of it. HTC, Google, and Droid will continue to make there product and so will iphone.

Nike and under armor have there compression products almost 100% the same yet nike isn't suing under armor.

Yep. Even their name, Apple, was stolen and they got their asses handed to them for it. What's original about the iPhone anyway? Pinch to zoom?

and what you have there is a man scared of competition. this has been going on for generations. someone does something that works and other use the idea to come up with something better. its just a matter of time before people realize apple makes the exact same phone with the exact same software every single time they say its a 'new" iphone and get bored with it.

iPhone created the smart phone and everything that they are. So, to answer that question. They are the original.

Not really scared. The man had a dream to create one phone with one button and he did it.

Incorrect IBM actually created the first smart phone back in 1992.

And yes jobs was scared of competition. It meant he actually had to do something new with his product other then make it faster.

I wouldn't say collectors. How many androids are on the market? They roll them out by the Pallets.

and they have not done so. in a age where people want bigger phones they made a smaller phone. the only new great thing they have done is siri. which is neat until you realize anyone can use your phone with it even if your phone is locked.

iPhone 4S Release Date: Siri Poses Security Risk - How to Secure Your iPhone 4S? (VIDEO), Christian News

oh but way theres a way around it. just turn siri off lol. what a joke
