Ok guys this is getting beyond a joke.
There is competition and there is innovation.
I think that many people who reply with the above comments don't know the difference.
Competition is when you make a product that is the same as everyone else's and hope that yours stands out from the crowd enough.
Innovation is when you create the same product and then everyone copies your ideas.
If these other companies really want to move the industry forward they need to innovate, not just copy but bump the specs (eg you have a 5MP camera.... we have an 8MP one etc).
If this wasn't the case then why do all the smart phones post iPhone launch look like mutant clones of the iPhone?

YES.... They learnt to use the photo copier before all other companies.

Yeah its getting annoying that people can say things like the iPhone has sold only 3 million and the Android has sold 23 million, instead of apple phone has sold x million and samsungs android phones have sold x million.
Its the same as how they compare iOS devices to android and conveniently forget the touch or iPad in their figures.
