Shin Jong-kyun, Samsung mobile chief on the just announced Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Google’s new Android flagship device:
The Galaxy Nexus smartphone, the first handset built using a new version of the Android system called “ice cream sandwich,” is designed to bypass potential legal attacks from Apple Inc.
He’s basically admitting openly that they copy Apple and that they are trying to bypass their patents instead of being original and come up with their own stuff. Shame on you, Samsung. Shame on you!
Interesting rhetorics, Shin. Like Ben Brooks at brooksreview.net puts it:
Interesting choice of words here: “bypass”. Whereby “not infringe” would be the correct thing to do, bypassing patents is more like: “sneaking around patents”.
Exactly. I can just see the tagline of a Galaxy Nexus ad:
“The new Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus: built to avoid Apple patent lawsuits”.
