Samsung UI patent filing reveals new folder features

0. phoneArena 23 Jun 2012, 01:27 posted on

A patent filing made late last year by Samsung and newly discovered by Patent Bolt reveals a new UI that focuses on how Android users interact with folders on the screen; the folders stack like a deck of cards and can be pulled like an accordion to display the contents...

Let's hope they're not using iOS for the navigational software, or they'll think they're in the Antarctic Ocean when they're in the Pacific.

Oh, and they may hold it wrong.

Wow you guys are crying about them having to get a patent because of apple. This is the main reason why apple sue Samsung. They take something that's already out and add something a little different, like making folders and make the icons look like a deck of cards. Give me a break

Take something someone else did and make it a little different?

Like the grid of icons on a smartphone that Apple took from Palm and WinMo? Like the notification shade Apple took from Android? Like the design of the Prada that Apple stole from LG? Like the swipe to unlock Apple took from Neonode?

Gosh, Apple are such innovators!

I know you're not talking about palm pre. Ok they copied notifications. What did it copy from lg prada? The shape lol. Dude I bet you never seen a neonode in person, and I know you would've bought one. Plus they didn't have a patent for it

Um, there were Palms before the Pre, you
know that don't you?

Since Apple has no problem claiming copying ivepr shape, its ok for me to also.

What does it matter if I bought a Neonode? That doesn't change the fact that Apple stole the idea, and now want to sue others for the same thing.

You're missing the point - you claim Samsung takes ideas, changes them a little, and that is wrong. Meanwhile, that's Apple's modus operandi.

Samsung takes ideas and tries to make them exactly like Apple's.

Example S voice interface looks just like Siri. If Samsung would try to implement things their own way instead of going out of their way to copy there wouldn't be issues.

You won't admit Samsung copied when it's plainly obvious so you're opinion is invalid.

Their not going to admit it even those the evidence is in their face. Samsung is a great company but they have always copied designs. The first copied design I saw was that Samsung vibrant. I swore it was a iPhone on the commercial. The second thing I saw wasn't a phone, it was a all in one pc. The thing looks just like a ps3 with the disc slot and the surface buttons

S-Voice interface looks just like V-Lingo interface, which came long before Siri.

You won't admit you were wrong about the screen resolution of the iPhone being lower than the 720p Android phones, or that you were wrong about user agent spoofing affecting browser statistics, or that the Phone Arena review of every ICS phone so far says ZERO LAG.

Trust me, my opinion, while not a great barometer, are seen as far more valid on this forum than yours.

Tap syncing wow it's been out for two whole months

1.Turn-by-Turn Navigation
2.The new Safari features: it mirrors what HP with Touch-To-Share on the Palm Pre 3 and HP Touchpad.
3.Apple-Do Not Disturb feature ; it’s not a core Android feature, but it’s built into Google Voice.
4. Apple’s inclusion of Notification Center in iOS 5.

Just to name a few, need to re-read all their 200 feature...lol

Apple did not invent smartphones, the candybar form factor, the touchscreen, icons, swipe to unlock, popup menus to choose which program to use if there are more than one, voice commands, or tapping. That doesn't stop iFans from screaming about copying when those functions show up on competing phones.

Idk know who you have been talking to but everyone knows the neither apple or android created those things , but they made it popular and put them all together in one device

77. tedkord (Posts: 5105; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)


Touchscreen smartphones existed before the iPhone. Making something popular doesn't give you the exclusive rights to the concept. Putting things together that already existed first does not give you exclusive rights to them.

And how is this affecting you? Are they suing you?

By suing various Android OEM's, they are causing the retail price of Android devices to go up by as much as $100 or more per device in most cases. So, now, when I am ready for a smartphone, the barrier-to-entry for Android devices will be higher than for WP or iOS devices. Android devices that would have been free sans-suit will now cost me $100 on contract, and the Android's that are free with contract are mostly from ZTE and Huawei, or even LG, and I tend to not be a huge fan of Android on those brands at that pricepoint in particular. So, yeah, they aren't suing me directly, but if I try to go and buy an Android device then they have, in fact, reached a hand into my wallet via the OEM passing the cost on to me at the time of purchase. So, yes, it sill does affect me, or anyone who is considering buying an Android device. And yes, as for the breath of common sense that just hit you while reading this, you're welcome...

No, they're not suing me, but they are affecting me. They're trying to limit my options by banning any other competition. Even when they fail at banning them, them slow down the innovation of competitors, and drive up prices with the cost of litigation.

And, that is their goal. They know they can't keep the competitive pace of Android OEMs, so they aim to either keep competing products off the market or hold them up enough to hurt sales and drive competitors from the market, while driving up costs. They see what happened with Microsoft in the 80's happening again, and it scares them silly.

Funny how if Apple filed this patent fandroids would be screaming bloody murder

Funny how when anyone else files a patent, Apple either sues the snot out of them for using globalized ideas related to their existing specific patents, just steals the idea and uses it until they get sued (and then counter-sue the snot out of whoever sued them until they either win, or can settle for pennies on the dollar), or talks them into negotiating FRAND rights... and THEN sues the snot out of them for "withholding FRAND rights!"

Of course, I also have to say it is funny (in a terrifyingly horrific way) to see others realize how screwed they are, in that they can't make something sell unless it is fundamentally a lot like the iPhone, and then get the snot sued out of themselves for making something that is a lot like the iPhone (not a copy, nor a counterfeit, but just a lot like it in function and overall style trends, which is what most people are buying these days no matter what OEM brand it is). Unless your company name IS Apple, you really cannot truly win these days... follow the money, folks... follow the money...

iPhone did change the industry. Then, they sat on their laurels for the next 5 years, and tried to prevent the rest of the industry from passing them by litigating. It didn't work.

My point, taco, is that Apple will always be unhappy and sue-crazy until they are the only OEM that can still make a smartphone that is rectangular with rounded edges, has a thin bezel, has a capacitive touchscreen supporting multi-touch and gestures, has a home screen populated by icons, and that can be either solid black or solid white if they want it to be. Thus far, only two other major players in the industry have gotten a pass on ANY of the above: Microsoft and Sony. So, yes, the iPhone changed the mobile industry forever... and now Apple wants to own this entire industry for itself, to squeeze as much money out of it, and us, as they possibly can, just for the sake of having all the money and letting everyone else hang for it. They have even worked the patent law angle and jurisprudence angle to great effect, so now it is much more difficult for anyone to counter-sue on any basis... unless they get lucky enough to find an ever-more-rare impartial judge to look over the case (Apple vs. Motorola). So... you are trumpeting around my last comment like it's such great news... you must have missed it when I called it... ahem... "terrifyingly horrific"? Yeah, that was not meant to be a compliment...

Not if they filed it legitimately, and were just looking for a license fee, and not the total banning of a whole line of products.
