The Nexus 4 Bumper: Google’s Latest Shameless Apple Ripoff

The Nexus 4 Bumper: Google’s Latest Shameless Apple Ripoff

Two years ago, Apple released their Bumper case for the iPhone 4 – a simple case to protect the edges, but leave the face and back exposed. Google has now revealed a brand new and completely original case for the Nexus 4 that just happens to copy not only the same function and almost exactly the same design, but features the same name as well: the Nexus 4 Bumper.

Clearly Google’s idea is completely original. Almost everyone was selling Bumpers for smartphones, View-Masters, hamburgers, and even small dogs way before Apple was selling them for the iPhone 4. Just to be clear: Google is absolutely, plainly, quite clearly NOT copying Apple.

At least that’s the mantra they recite to help them sleep at night. Nice work with that little innovation there, Google!

As usual, Jim Dalrymple of The Loop captures my sentiments on the matter quite well:

What a great idea Google. A case for your smartphone that protects the edges, but leaves the screen free. And calling it a bumper is simply genius. Why didn’t Apple think of that a couple of years ago.
