It seems that LG's not taking all this "iPhone clone" talk lightly. LG's Head of Mobile Handset R&D, Mr. Woo-Young Kwak, had this to say when the press uttered the painful phrase one too many times:

We consider that Apple copycat Prada phone after the design was unveiled when it was presented in the iF Design Award and won the prize in September 2006.


Let's just say they were both developed at around the same time and neither of them took significant design details from the other, shall we?

Come on, folks. The important thing to note is that clearly the models holding the respective phones are significantly different from each other, and I know which side of the photos I am looking at. (Sorry, Steve!)

Joking aside .. Who cares who copied who? Whether anyone would like to admit it, all technology is copied from others. That is part of the evolution of technology, and it happens on fashion, software, automobiles, cell phones, and just about everything else. It is this constant 'they copied that from so-and-so' nonsense that is absolutely ludicrous.

Everything in the technology world is copied from something else. There really are no 'original' ideas. Not even from Apple.
