To license round corners with a over-price is like to steal. Rectangular devices with round corners existed before Apple.
Apple is very scared about how fast is going Samsung.
Check this video, keep it until iphone5 appear and compare it. If you are very sure about Apple, why dont do it?
Sorry for my english. It is not my native languaje and I am a bit tired to try to write everything correctly.
Why do some idiots keep saying Apple patented rectangular corners and round corners. First, the lawsuit was about a plethora of patents. Tap to Zoom, one finger scrolling, pinch to zoom, bounce back, iOS device home screen lay-out, iPhone front design, iPhone back design, and the iPad design. Apple won for all the patents except the iPad design patent.
Apple never claimed it patented the rectangle or rounded corners. Those elements when taken as a whole with the over all look of the device are however patented. It is indisputable Samsung's devices changed over night to account for the Apple's devices. Further, Apple lost on the iPad design patent, which concerns the so called rectangular device with rounded corners patent.
Moreover, Tap to Zoom, bounce back, pinch to zoom, and one finger scrolling were all born out of Apple doing away with the key board, which now seems obvious but at the time was controversial. Further, Microsoft has shown that it is possible to design a home screen that looks different (and is pleasant) than Apple's.
