This changes everything. Again.

September 11, 2011

Pun intended on the title above.

J.D. Power and Associates once again ranked iPhone as the top smartphone, saying that “Technology advancements also impact the experience of mobile devices in a number of areas. For example, touch screen-only smartphones generate considerably higher satisfaction with ease of operation than either QWERTY-only based devices or those that have both a touch screen and QWERTY functions.”

So tech industries and analysts finally get it; that touch screen only smartphone is better than a touch screen and QWERTY smartphone combined  (yup, we’re looking at you RIM, with your new BB Bold 9900), but how long has it been since Steve Jobs introduced the first iPhone? Seriously, what took them so long to figure that out.

While on the other side of the pond, Fox News posted a brief article of Samsung new Galaxy smartphone titled: “The Galaxy S II: Samsung’s iPhone Killer Has Finally Arrived”, my eyes got hurt a little when I read it, so be warned of what you’re about to read. It boasts that people are buying the Galaxy S II because it’s the new cutting edge Android smartphone available out there with the most kicking-ass specs inside, but the article didn’t even once mention about the ‘ease use of operation’ those Galaxy smartphones are. Odd.

If what Samsung bragging is true, according to that Fox News article; “Over 5 million people worldwide have already bought the flagship Android phone in the 85 days it has been on the market — that’s one sold every 1.5 seconds”, then perhaps the Korean company can’t smile for long because Apple win over Samsung in Germany. Quoting from Judge Johanna Brueckner-Hofman who oversee the legal fight:

“”The court is of the opinion that Apple’s minimalistic design isn’t the only technical solution to make a tablet computer, other designs are possible. For the informed customer there remains the predominant overall impression that the device looks [like the iPad].”

Boom.

That gotta hurt, so bottom line Samsung is copying Apple design and now everybody can say that out loud since it’s been legally proven. That doesn’t look good for a big company like Samsung, and it’s going to be mentioned almost every time  it introduce a new device.

And it’s not just for Samsung, it’s also applicable to other tech companies too, depending on whether or not Apple will pursue a legal fight. The ruling from German court is important for Apple, and to quote the famous iPhone 4 ad; “This changes everything. Again.”
