They hit Samsung, because they were doing everything they could to
copy Apple's look. Look at the billboards here in Poland, and you
couldn't tell if it was an ad for Samsung or Apple--it was for
Samsung, btw. Samsung has been the most slavish of all the Android
manufacturers trying to coattail on Apple, so they got hit. End of

As to "running whatever OS I want on my "device"... well, nobody is
really stopping you. Go ahead and try. Apple's just not going to help
you. That said, I can't imagine spending top dollar for an iPhone,
only to load some second-rate OS onto it. Just buy the cheaper phone!
