Samsung Galaxy SIII – Designed by lawyers

Samsung finally unveiled the Galaxy SIII & the immediate reaction has been pretty meh. For starters, it doesn’t look at that great, has generously borrowed features from other manufacturers (S Voice is obviously based off Siri, Image enhancements borrowed from the HTC’s tech from the One series) Android Police has an interesting article on why the Galaxy SIII came to be what it is?

The combination of those trade dress attributes got the Galaxy S and SII in legal hot water, so for the S III, Samsung made this list their “Hey, don’t do this” design guidelines. That’s right, the entire phone design revolves around not pissing off Apple.
