It is still slide to unlock. The direction doesn't matter according to the patent.

Still its slide to unlock? Do you know that Japan has sliding doors? Apple may well call them 'slide to unlock' and sue the entire of Japan.

How else are we supposed to unlock our phones? Face unlock is nice, but it has some flaws. Not everybody wants to use a pattern lock.

Apple has a right to defend it's patents, but some of those patents shouldn't have been issued in the first place because they are just so ridiculous.

I just thought of something....

Patter unlock....you have to swipe to draw the pattern. So.....how is that swiping up and down is considered infringing on slide to unlock....but a pattern unlock isnt? You can also set it so the pattern isnt drawn onscreen.

Something just seems of about all this mess.

Time to bring out the Boycott Apple t-shirts and wear them outside the venue of the upcoming iPhone announcement.

now is the time Samsung, Get a better Lawyer team, ask help from Google and get the patents invalidated, this could help you on the lost case appeal

Good news for Samsung.

More and more customers will come to Samsung and ignore the iphone 5.

More and more apple lovers will leave that dirty company.

More and more tech lovers will throw sh!t into Apple face.

More and more judges will see how stupid apple's patents are.

Good good!

In the U.S., I doubt it, but it would be nice.

Really? Word completion? My old Moto Razr V3 had word completion. Maybe after they add these 2 the idiot judge will realize Apple is just throwing lawsuits to stop their competition and overthrow the whole 1bil verdict. If not...hahaha....iPaid.

No matter what you did apple against samsung, samsung will reign on smartphones around the world. Just innovate and produce more product APPLE as what samsung did. I think you're getting envy with samsung. Good luck apple the consumers will decide which product they want. You hurt samsung as will as the consumer that will lead them starting on hating you.

Hahahahahah, Wow! One victory in US and Apple's already thinking it owns the world. Anyways, I'm done Cupertino. Good-f**king-bye. You and your cult can stay behind and worship iPhones in dark rooms. Meanwhile, the rest of the world, you know what we'll do. We don't need your iPhones anymore. I am apparently disgusted by my own iPhone. And these lawsuits are an indication that your precious POS iPhone 5 is no where near a match to these big boys you are tryna ban. Good luck. Control USA all you like. But don't even think of spreading overseas. We don't want your virus to spread nor we want your dumbed down phones.

Its sad....once upon a time I liked Apple....this was long before the iPhone. The more the years went by.....the more I was getting turned off by what they did, how the conducted business.

iPhone tied to one carrier. Yes I wanted one in 2008-2009. Droid 1 changed my mind.
One style of iPhone. I also wanted the Droid 1 for the keyboard.
Mac desktop OS tied to a specific PC.
High prices for basically the same thing.
Now...the lawsuits. I didnt know about the lawsuits back then....but I see them now.

I liked that movie Pirates of Silicon Valley and rooted for Apple back then. Now....not so much. Its funny....Gates,MS and Apple have flip flopped as far as the evil empire..lol

Cant forget them brain washing folks into thinking they invented the world...and the Antenna Gate brain wash. Antenna Gate really drove me to disliking them even more. I might even hate em now.
