Samsung Android Live Tiles

At CES, Samsung announced four new Android tablets which will include new UX Samsung has built on top of Android. The Magazine UX is basically a tweaked version of Windows 8 Start experience. You will have large Live Tiles for different apps which you can arrange on your home screen similar to what Windows 8.1 provides to users now. Today @evleaks posted a screenshot of Samsung’s Magazine UX for Galaxy devices. Yes, Samsung is bringing the Live Tiles experience to Android devices. As you can see in the above screenshot, you will have information overlayed on images similar to Live Tiles and you can rearrange them on your home screen.

Do you think Samsung is crossing the line between inspiration and copying with this Magazine UX? Should Microsoft defend their Live Tiles implementation from Samsung?
