Hey Motorola, slide this:
I don't think the Neonode's method is quite the same. Apple's patent states:
"The device displays one or more unlock images with respect to which the predefined gesture is to be performed in order to unlock the device. The performance of the predefined gesture with respect to the unlock image may include moving the unlock image to a predefined location and/or moving the unlock image along a predefined path."
The patent could sort of describe the Neonode method if you cut out the conditionals but it doesn't use an identifier to perform the unlock, you just slide across the bottom of the screen. There's no interactive animation to the unlocking.
Still, I'm sure Apple wouldn't like if someone else held a patent on keycode entry that would prevent them using a pin unlock system. They could have let this one slide
but in light of the blatant plagiarism of Apple's unique designs, these Android device manufacturers and Google deserve to have at least some lawsuits go through protecting Apple's uniqueness.
