Apple has won its first patent case against the now Google owned Motorola, the ruling by a German court could have a number of implications not just for Motorola but also for Google’s Android OS, and a number of Android device manufacturers.
Motorola has said they will appeal the decision, although in the interim they will have to change existing devices which infringe on the Apple patent in Germany.
Apple is also attempting to use the ‘slide to unlock’ patent against Samsung and Google for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, as well as a number of other devices, and the ruling in this case could have some bearing on the case against the Galaxy Nexus.
