mrspoonsi (2955715) writes with word that Samsung is hopping on the metal case and rounded corners design bandwagon. From the article: Samsung says a metal frame and curved corners give the Galaxy Alpha a "sophisticated" look. The South Korean company describes the Galaxy Alpha as representing a "new design approach". The firm has previously been criticised for the plastic feel of its handsets at a time when other firms have opted to use materials marketed as having a "premium" feel. Samsung Electronics saw a 20% year-on-year drop in its last quarter's profit. The phone features 2G of RAM, a 4.7" AMOLED display, and either an 8-core Exynos 5 or 4-core Snapdragon 801.

    A metal frame with curved corners? A new design approach? Yeah. A new design approach, assuming you've never seen an iPhone from the past several years...

    I know, it's wacky to accuse Samsung of copying Apple. That would never happen.

If it's worth hacking on well, it's worth hacking on for money.

Working...
