Yeah, sure, they look EXACTLY the same
You're kind of missing the point here.
It's not that this or that particular feature or knob "looks exactly like" the iPad one, it's about how overall
, Samsung has generally copied the design. It's not about comparing one particular product to the iPad, it's their whole range.
It's also not about saying Samsung does it and no one else does. Apple is arguing that lots of people are copying, but they are going after Samsung as the most egregious example of this.
If you look at Samsung's entire product line instead of picking and choosing, you can easily see that the earlier products were almost exactly
similar. They were the first ones to copy the single home button, the chrome ring trim, the curved back, and the home screen layout and icons.
Sure they've moved away from these designs since they caught wind of the lawsuit, and sure there are other companies and products around today that infringe as much or even more. Apple has to start somewhere though.
They picked their biggest competitor and the one that was (at the time), copying them the most. Where else would they start?
