Well, I guess when major companies decide that "Gold is good" (sorry, Gordon Gecko) and send film crews to your flagship store to try to figure out why people camp for one particular phone, you're doing something right. :D

Copycats.

It's fine to introduce a gold smartphone, but the timing is very much a coinkidink. Right, Samsung? Right, HTC?

Furthermore, if Samsung had held a keynote and announced a 64-bit CPU in their latest phone, Apple wouldn't have felt compelled to say a word. But, that's not how it went...

Apple didn't make the first gold-colored phone, but for two competitors to have gold-colored phones in the works immediately after the introduction of the highly sought-after gold iPhone is the sincerest form of flattery.
