Wrong Reuters, the iPhone ripped off the LG Prada which has the same design as the iPhone yet started development well before the iPhone and came out before the iPhone. It was not until the design of the LG Prada at the iF Design conference where it would win the prize in September 2006 that the iPhone design started taking shape.

i) Apple could not come up with anything new. Referring to iPad’s statistics while presenting a new iPhone is simply pathetic.
ii) Fortunately, they managed to catch up with competitors… to some extent. Lumia looked more interesting,though.
iii) But we still should buy it. First of all, “why not?”. Also, they invented the widely used design (I wonder who invented the design of the chair I am sitting in). Besides ,they are protected from competition by the US government which is kind of nice :)
