German court rules Motorola Xoom doesn't infringe on Apple's iPad design patents, still upholds them as valid

The court ruled that Motorola's Android tablet and a poster child for the first slate-oriented mobile OS from Google - Honeycomb - does not infringe on any of Apple's claimed iPad design patents.
Motorola had filed a counterclaim that the iPad design patents are actually invalid, which was dismissed by the judges, so it's a win-win stalemate - Motorola is free to sell its Xoom and won't pay any damages, while Apple gets to keep its wobbly design sketch iPad patents as credible, and fight another day, if that's what its lawyers deem necessary.

I heard Apple is going to sue Vatican for claiming that the 10 Commandments were written on a tablet that looks like an iPad. There goes Christianity...
