Legal Remember when Steve Jobs launched the iPhone, and held it up in the air, proudly proclaiming "Boy, have we patented it", followed by a massive applause of the adoring audience? It may seem like this wasn't just an empty claim, either. During the earnings conference call yesterday, the company hinted at possible legal action against Palm were the Pre to infringe on iPhone patents.

I don't think software patents are involved here.


Some of the patents may cover software, software controls stuff like multitouch, one of the patents (which is why, in spite of the G1 hardware allowing it, Google didn't do multitouch) as does hardware.
