I cannot believe what some companies try and patent.
Thumbwheels? Sony have had those on phones for a long time. Have they been sued on this?
Synchronisation via docking. Psion did this back on the 3 (and maybe earlier). My archaic LG Phenom CE 2 device does it as well.
Can anyone say "prior art". Or even "Obvious"? This is getting well beyond a joke.
