[Update] Samsung’s ‘Smart Case’ is a Blatant Smart Cover Knock Off

by on July 18th, 2011

Update: Samsung has spoken out about the Smart Case via their blog:

As a general practice, Samsung Electronics reviews and approves all accessories produced by partners before they are given the “Designed for Samsung Mobile” mark.
