I have no preference to mobile eco system, I (unfortunately) have to use all the four major ones to a certain extent. Can you explain your argument in this article? In the 'lets see' section, on the first point, auto responses as texts were around before Android, I think I remember it on an old Nokia 'Smartish' phone. Facebook contacts is a Facebook API that is Facebook owned, not Android, nor Apple - they would both likely be paying Facebook for the use and integration. The last three points aren't owned or even created by Android. These last three were built into windows mobile 6.5 and earlier. Apples case against Samsung would be the same as if someone decided to create a mobile platform with large square tiles filling the whole screen which displayed current information on them.... almost as if it were 'live'.
