After the release of the iPhone, it's time to smile a little. As we know, Apple is suing whom it can, alleging copying products. After the presentation of new iPods at once there are voices that Apple is also not a prude...
The device, which apart from a new iPhone sparked yesterday a lot of (not always positive) emotions is the new iPod nano. The next incarnation of the popular player has grown... and became dangerously similar to Nokia Lumia 800! Internet users immediately took up the subject, dividing into two camps. Some argue that Nokia copies the design of the Apple, others condemn Californians, arguing that the new iPod was modeled on Nokia. There is also a third group which is a completely inert, and any resemblance - although perhaps noticeable – is a coincidence. In fact, I was not going to write about it, but when a man named Casey Chan began in the pages of Gizmodo to prove that in fact Nokia copies Apple – I could not stand it.
Comparison iPod vs Lumia
Strength of evidence is shocking. I laughed to tears. Chan showed us a picture comparing the devices in question and the date of their presentation. If we compare only Nokia and the new nano - the resemblance is noticeable, and the Finns, whose styling is a year older, win. But when we show next to the devices the previous nano (from 2010) and we show another one, identical player, it turns out that the verdict will not spoke so obviously for Nokia
. The question is whether lawyers join the Internet users... I hope not, because in my opinion - the devices are different, and the only common element is a rectangular screen surrounded by a narrow, coloured frame. On this basis, we show similarity of 90% of currently offered smartphones and a large part of players, and this could lead to the fact that companies - in order to avoid inter-actions start to offer devices in the shape of a cylinder or ball! Look at the picture and judge it yourself: who copied whom? Or do you think that this discussion does not make sense?
