    They probably wouldn't even have to take off TouchWhiz... If this is just over how the interface "looks", all they have to do is create a different "theme" and ship the phone with that. You can always install whatever themes and icon packs you want later, including one that has all Apple iPhone icons. They wouldn't have to change the menues and features of Touchwiz, if it's just about looks, all they have to do is pick another theme and push it to the phones, problem solved.

    I think it is a bunch of BS. Samsung should just stop building anything for apple.

    It's funny how everyone gets up in arms about someone making changes to and rebranding a ROM as their own without giving credit to the source but everyone is OK with one company blatantly ripping off another's form factor and potentially their IP as well

    Apple is acting like a spoiled baby in a big way.

    From what I remember, that relationship was severed just before all of the litigation kicked into high gear.

    This x1000.
    Remember Blackdroid v. Cyanogen? (Kang-gate)

    The truth is that Apple could devise a cure for cancer and some people would try to find a way to bash them, no one seems to be able to admit that TouchWiz is a blatant rip-off, and no one seems to give them the credit they deserve. Hell, Mr. Jobs seemed like public enemy #1 for a ton of people.... That is, until he died.
