BlackBerry Bold’s Similarities to iPhone Purely Coincidental, Apparently

RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis, regarding the glossy-black-front-with-silver-bevel-edge BlackBerry Bold:

This is three years in the making. So I’m sorry but this wasn’t a response to another device. Either that or we have a time machine somewhere, or some kind of magic crystal ball or something. This was actually designed three years ago and the actual physical design of this product — I have the original models from 2006.

Perhaps Apple copied the iPhone design from them.
