The news we’ve all been waiting for, which we’ve covered in a couple of posts the past couple of weeks. LG has finally stepped up and said they’ve been robbed by Apple for the look and feel of the iPhone, saying it’s too damn close to their own new device coming out with Prada. Here’s a bit of what’s sure to be an interesting, developing story:

However, the handset maker announced its official position on Apple phone at press conferences with the presence of Scott Ahn, CEO of LG’s mobile phone business division held on February 12 in Barcelona, Spain.

Mr. Woo-Young Kwak, head of LG Mobile Handset R&D Center said to the press, “We consider 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.”
