GooPhone i5 Maker Might Sue Apple Over iPhone 5's Design

GooPhone, the manufacturer behind that Android phone that looks like it was built based on leaked details of the next iPhone now says that it will sue Apple if the iPhone 5 goes on sale in China.

The Hong Kong-based manufacturer is said to have designed the GooPhone i5 Android phone after the alleged Apple iPhone 5 parts leaked. But it has a very rational argument: it released its phone first, so any similar-looking devices released going forward must be a copy. So since GooPhone's i5 was released first, that makes it the original and Apple's iPhone 5 a clone.

Make sense? Of course it doesn't. It'll be interesting to see what happens once Apple's new iPhone is revealed a week from today. [Goophone via GizChina via Cult of Mac]
