What does this prove? I bet somewhere in apple hidden away there are similar documents showing how Johnny Ive design comparison to android when he designed iOS7.
Original iphone was a runaway success. As apple competitors they would have to response to the new competition by dissecting iphone and how to respond. Just like now Apple has to copy the strong points of Android to fight it.
I thought we are talking about OS similarity (not design).
Anyway, if you take a look at this filing by samsung, it was a completely different story. Samsung released F700 6 months before iphone. The iphone looked remarkably similar to F700. Maybe apple copied this design.

The F700 was still a blackberry oriented design with a full physical keyboard, Appleinsider as already addressed this in a previous article:
Games and third party apps on Symbian was mostly Java apps:
