Every Android device now infringes Apple patent: Slide to unlock | ZDNet
Whatever your position is on patent infringement and the never-ending lawsuits in the mobile space, the fact is until the system is overhauled it is the law. I hate that design elements can be patented, instead of actual devices which makes more sense. Apple has been riding the patentability of design elements for a while, and has a number of Android device makers on the ropes as a result. A patent awarded today to Apple guarantees that every Android phone and tablet ever made infringes Apple’s design.
