A few days after Apple unveiled the first pictures of its iPhone, Korean cellphone maker LG rolled out its Prada phone, a touchless candybar that according to Telecoms Korea, some Internet users argued that the phone has many similarities with LG Prada phone and LG, then, remained silent.

LG’s position on the iPhone changed. It now accuses Apple of ripping off its design. Mr. Woo-Young Kwak, head of LG Mobile Handset R&D Center said “that Apple copycat Prada phone after the design was unveiled when it was presented in the iF Design Award and won the prize in September 2006.” For the record, Apple presented the iPhone at the MacWorld conference in mid-January, that would make it copy the design in just three months.
