Like I wrote before, Tomi Ahonen insists that LG Prada outsold iPhone, which is a fallacy, nothing less. I also pointed out that Tomi thinks LG Chocolate non-touch phone is somehow of the same design as iPhone, which also is simply delusional.
Now we got a rock bottom from Tomi:

So then there must be the single-button simplistic large screen touch-screen device FORM FACTOR. That is as iconic Apple design as possibly could be. It is the very ethos of Apple-ness. Simple, to the point of eliminating aspects others consider vital to the functionality (a physical keyboard) and then super-slim, with that magnificently HUGE screen of 3.5 inches in a world where Nokia’s N95 flagship only had a 2.8 inch screen. The form factor we now call the ‘slab’. This is clearly an Apple invention, isn’t it? It must be.

No it isn’t. You may think it is. Most of the idiot writers may think it is. I don’t go by myths, I go by the facts. These are the facts. LG released a phone design in 2006, which they were setting up to be manufactured from 2007.

That phone design by LG became known to us as two LG phones, the LG Prada branded luxury phone, and the LG Chocolate consumer phone. Both were the true prototype of what the iPhone looked like. So much so, if you see a black-and-white picture of an LG Prada or LG Chocolate without the logos, and are asked what phone is that, you’d say its the original iPhone.
