    Wonder how many of these Apple will sell before Samsung wins their (maybe upcoming) lawsuit?

    Except Apple's already got that basic design in their back pocket from long before the Samsung player, revealed during the lawsuit:

    If they kept it in house and didn't patent/trade mark it, and didn't show it off, it doesn't mean squat.

    I think. I didn't think you could own a rectangle either though.

    The fact they had their own design like the Samsung one before it came out is a sign they didn't copy them.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Apple sued them.

    And won.

    They patent all sorts of stuff they don't/haven't yet released don't they?

    i guess Apple products take time to develop, but Samsung ones just pop out of nowhere without a development cycle.. Hmm, makes sense!!

    Sorry, but these devices don't look alike.

    I will still buy the Nano over an MP3 player that Samsung makes. I do have other Samsung products like a Microwave and a 24" Monitor for my MB.
