Apple has been granted a patent for viewing content such as lists and documents on a portable electronic device. It’s a UI patent, and seems kind of ambiguous.
One such patent is for displaying lists and documents. Again, it’s very ambiguous, as most patent filings are. However, according to reports, this is a major win for Apple in the mobile space as it gives them some major power in the mobile industry. If this will become something that the legal team uses for their advantage in the near future isn’t yet known, but it can definitely be a headache for other mobile makers.
