CNET story about Apple's future iPhone
I am just now reading this article on CNET about Apple's application for certain patents - including a bendable display for perhaps a future iPhone model. Here's an interesting quote from this article:
"Users would interact with the device using touch gestures rather than physical buttons. For example, swiping along one of the sides could lock and unlock the device as an alternative to using the current hold button. That innovation would've pleased the late Steve Jobs, who always envisioned an iPhone without any physical buttons."
Innovation? Excuse me?

Apple has been using gestures now for quite some time, they originally started using them on the Mac years ago and brought them over to the iPad in the past couple of years, its pretty logical to think that eventually they might bring it over to the iPhone...GOD'S IN HIS HEAVEN, ALL'S RIGHT WITH THE WORLD

And yet it the review of the Z10 they said this "The Z10's unintuitive gesture paradigm creates a learning curve, and a long list of OS inefficiencies and omissions sour the experience."Unlocked Rogers Z10 STL100-3 10.2.1.2947 / Unlocked Bell Q10 SQN100-1 10.2.1.2947

I said this is blackberries problem, apple, is great at taking prior tech and making the world think they created it. BlackBerry should hinge the bb10 marketing on the gestures experience, the camera thing is gimmicky a gesture Os which actually works is revolutionary and bb10 is that. Marketing should be centered around that!!!

Apple can copy the device interface tricks. But blackberry is courting the enterprise with services. BlackBerry knows how to build services. Mobile me flopped. Now icloud is having all kinds of reliability and security issues.
BlackBerry is on the right track.

I don't think CNET meant gestures would be innovative if apple used 'Em. They are talking more of the wraparound display and gestures on the sides of the phone to carry out actions.
Samsung has already demonstrated a concept device with screens that curve down the side and can work with gestures. Nobody has brought such a device to the market just yet...

I guess I can't blame all of you, because he did leave out the article, but you're making fools of yourselves.
1.only on CB did the company that finally brought a touch OS to the market invent "touch gestures" LOL. The ORIGINAL iphone swiped to unlock, swiping within the OS, and had multitouch.
2.OBVIOUSLY, (see #1) the innovation isn't swiping, it's the patents on the case. There are actually others that are case related as well, for example, one where the display/case is pressure sensitive.
