A real tongue in cheek answer – at least Apple can’t claim to be the first victim. You definitely can’t accuse Samsung of not keeping with the times or latest trends.
Before Apple, Samsung did not copy the Blackberry either.
This is the Samsung Blackjack II. Notice that the name Blackjack sounds nothing like Blackberry.
And before that, when the Motorola Razr was a top seller. Samsung definitely did not copy it with a phone called the Blade. The word Blade and the word Razr don’t even start with the same letter.
