Google seems to have copied Apple with their Nexus S phone webpage. Unless I have a serious eye sight deficiency, I am sure each one of you will agree with me. Be it the color combination, font usage or the basic design, everything about Nexus S webpage looks heavily inspired.

Have a look at the Nexus S website (features page) yourself. Now check Apple’s iPhone page. Now you understand what I mean?


Just as in iPhone page, each of the features are mentioned in headlines, with a brief description on what it’s about. You will see the high quality image (with reflection) alternating right and left which is typical of any Apple product. “Learn more about…” link has been replaced by “Watch video”. Other than that there isn’t much difference you can point out.


Many Apple fanboys are already screaming about Nexus S, as a phone, being a failed take on iPhone 4. Not that I approve that, but then, every new smartphone in the market is bound to be compared with iPhone 4 these days. But Google has gone a step further by emulating Apple’s web-design for their official Nexus S page.

I wonder if Google wanted to make it obvious through their web design that they are taking a swipe against iPhone, or just a mere co-incidence? Pour in your thoughts!

Update: Stumbled across a couple of posts which talk about the same. This post from Brad Wallen and this one from Tuhin Kumar.
