DHAKA: An attorney for Apple told a jury that bitter rival Samsung faced two options to compete in the booming cellphone market after Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone to critical acclaim in 2007: Innovate or copy.
Samsung chose to copy, making its smartphones and computer tablets illegal knock-offs of Apple’s popular products, attorney Harold McElhinny claimed, The Straits Times reports on Wednesday.
Samsung ‘has copied the entire design and user experience’ of Apple’s iPhone and iPad, McElhinny told a jury during his opening statement at the patent trial involving the world`s two largest makers of cellphones.
In his opening statement, Samsung attorney Charles Verhoeven countered that the South Korean company employs thousands of designers and spends billions of dollars on research and development to create new products.
