You should check out the images in the patent. It is a patent stemming from Desktops, using OS 7 or 8 type art. I feel this patent should have been granted as it was, but I don't think it applies in this case. Maybe it does as they have more information of HOW Samsung applied it than I do. Edit: I take that back, it's OS 6 type art.
