    Chinese company copies Iphone5, patents it in China, set to sue Apple for infringing

    You can't make this stuff up! Karma at its finest(funniest).

    Chinese company copies Iphone5, patents it in China, set to sue Apple for infringing-goophonei5-e1346844941772.jpeg

    Android fans, especially those of you who love your Samsung devices, might have something to cheer about today as it looks like Chinese Android phone maker GooPhone have already patented the design of the new iPhone 5 before Apple have had chance!
    .

    In recent months, tech blogs all over the world have released leaked photos and videos of what is rumored to be Apple's iPhone 5. The pictures show what appears to be a longer, thinner, but altogether similar version of previous models of the best-selling smartphone in the world. The Goophone I5 will run a version of the Android operating system that mimics the look of Apple's IOS. Goophone claims to have already patented its phone in China and vows to sue for patent infringement should Apple try to release the iPhone 5 in China as well.
    The most intriguing part of the GooPhone i5′s design is the fact that it could effectively block Apple from selling their next generation iPhone in the Chinese market, and may even mean GooPhone have the right to block iPhone 5 exports completely!

    The GooPhone i5 is expected to launch a little after the genuine iPhone 5 later this month and is said to feature an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core 1.4Ghz CPU, 1GB RAM, Android 4.0 ICS with an iOS 6 theme, 8 mega-pixel rear camera and a 4 inch screen with an impressive retina display resolution of 1280 x 720.

    What goes around, comes around...

    As much as I despise theft, I feel a certain level of satisfaction with this case’s circumstances. It seems that the manufacturer is making a statement in direct retaliation for the bullying that Apple has been perpetrating.

    May ye reap as ye sow.

    Baaahahahahahahahahahaha..

    Now the serious part... I hope apple has some ice for the black eye that they may get for this one.. however..


    Why don't they already have the i5 design patented? I ask because they've applied for and receive patents for tech that's nit in production yet..

    I'm not patent expert, but though you can't patent an idea(so I'm told) apple has found a way to do so... so why didn't they do it for the i5? Caught sleeping perhaps?

    If I were sitting on a jury here in these Apple suits, I wouldn't let Apple get away with some of the nonsense they claim having a patent to.

    You and the rest of the intelligent and responsible members of society. This is why it's happening...the one who is perpetrating the ludicrous claims (AKA Apple) is the favored son of the fanboy world, so they can do not wrong. Fortunately not so in the eyes of China! I'll bet China would love to "de-throne" Apple.

    Intelligent people are not the ones who get selected for juries. The ones who get selected are the ones who the attorneys feel are the most easily swayed to their position.
