That repositioning is going to lead to a increase in drops, especially with a metal back with sharp edges. I'm definitely very curious to see Apple's take on a bigger phone whenever it happens.Btw where's @pedromartins when we need him? He'd be elated with the results of this survey.
How do you find this stuff?Btw the patent was applied for back in 1996.http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=5,946,647.PN.&OS=PN/5,946,647&RS=PN/5,946,647
Clever indeed. Apple was able to get an injuction against HTC for the very same patent in 2011.http://appleinsider.com/articles/11/12/19/itc_grants_injunction_over_apple_data_detectors_patent_against_htc_android_phones
