    Seems to be updated with much more many features.

    Blogging Module
    Video Conferencing Module
    GPS Module (Who needs cell tower and wifi hotspots now? Haa! )
    Dictionary Application
    Alarm Clock Application
    Flash ( Saw that flash logo? )
    Inline Multimedia Content ( Meaning we're able to view video directly from the youtube site an not using the Youtube module? Suprisingly, the youtube module isn't presented on the application section on the left. )

    What's your view?

    My view is, Apple has boatloads of patents for all sorts of things, some of which materialize next week, some of which get used months or years later, and most of which never make it to actual products.

    So while it's an interesting patent, it doesn't show anything people haven't already thought of and it doesn't mean any of it will get implemented.

    It's just examples of what such a device could do. Doesn't mean it has or will have them, or that it's a complete list.

    You see this kind of "throw in the kitchen sink" fairly often in patent applications.

    Nothing to do with the 3G iPhone, this patent was from before the first-gen iPhone was released, patenting all the technology they could so nobody else could copy them by just adding a few features.

    Nope, it was a newly filed patent.

    No... it was filed on September 5, 2007. It's right in the header of the actual patent application, sheesh.

    In June of 2007... So, a 10 month old patent qualifies as "newly filed" because it came after the original iPhone?

    Well you claimed it came BEFORE the v1 iphone.

    and yes, a new update has yet to come out since that patent so it is still 'new' because there have been no revisions to implement or not implement this new design.

    I was just being nitpicking because your defense was that it came out before the original iphone, and then in ur next post defiantly claimed that the patent was filed in september of '07. sounds like somebody is using fuzzy math ;)

    A poster just above you did, and I assume he got the two of you confused.
