PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Android fans, especially those of you who love your Samsung devices, might have something to cheer about today as it looks like Chinese phone maker GooPhone have already patented the design of the new iPhone 5 before Apple have had chance!" This is just... Wow.

Well, its not unsubstantiated as there are multiple sources, some of which are Chinese. Further more, you can read the article and see the actual phone the patents are based on.

As for what could happen? Delays, bad press, possibly injunctions. Isn't that enough to warrant some attention?


Having a story in the news does not substantiate it. Example Bruce Willis suing over his iTunes music rights. It's was all over the world news, mostly in the US, totally wrong.

The story says the company says it got a patent? Even in China how do you get a patent in a few weeks when in most places it takes some time of patent pending before you get a patent. On top of that do we even know that you can get design patents in China? Lol.

So the patent application or patent award would at minimum substantiate it not just a companies word.
