Microsofts Cellphone looks like iPhone

See some resemblance?
Microsoft apparently filed a patent for an "easy to use touch screen interface". This is almost like the iPhone's interface.

Although seeing how crappy the iPhone was, I wonder if M$ actually has a chance at beating it.

Lol, have to agree. To me, it looks like a reasonable evolution of Windows Mobile, rather than a copy of an apple interface.

If you look at the picture thing, tho, you can see M$ made a sad attempt to copy the Cover Flow.

I agree, it looks more like the WM interface than the iPhone interface.

Maybe Microsoft should come up with their own innovative ideas instead of stealing them or buying the companies who came out with them.

Or maybe everyone should stop being so synical to Microsoft?

Touch-screen is the way forward. My 3 year old phone has heat-sensitive buttons, which are great!

When I renew my contract I'm definately looking for a phone with capabilities like the iPhone has.

Although I'd much prefer to run one made by Microsoft than Apple, so good luck to 'em!

I'm not being cynical tword MS for using a touchscreen, I think its great. However, they are obviously copying apples interface, which is what I think is bad.
