Apple Suing Samsung Over Galaxy Handsets and Tablets

I think it's safe to say that there is an official craze across the nation for iPhones and now even iPads.  

Apple has made innovations that have changed the cell phone industry, so it's no shock that other companies are going to try and replicate that success by releasing similar devices.  Apparently Apple isn't flattered by the imitation, and is actually suing Samsung over their Galaxy handsets and tablets.  Their lawsuit states: "Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple's technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products."

There was no doubt there would be alternates to the iPhone and iPad once they became so hugely successful but the question is, is the Samsung Galaxy series SO similar that it is a direct rip off of the Apple products?  From what we conclude there are some slight size and weight differences between the two, as well as some small details that are different, but we turn to our readers who may have used both phones.  Is the Samsung Galaxy a great alternative?  Or just another dressed up iPhone?
