Two days ago the patent office of the United States granted 29 new patents to Apple. Two of them are related to the design with the iPad. One covers the design of the box retail and the other covers the exterior design of the device.

The latest patent is quite important, as it covers the aspect of the famous Apple tablet. You know that many people say that Apple can not patent a rectangle with rounded edges, right?. Well, just do it.

The patent number 286 is entitled "portable display device", and literally covers a rectangular device. It is similar to the 889 patent Apple design, which helped win a major injunction against Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

From ArsTechnica provides more information:

"The 286 patent was Tuesday Apple patent looks to clarify the controversial 889 seen on Apple's trial against Samsung. The patent includes a series of drawings original iPad design, with most of their identifying characteristics drawn. As indicated in the description of the patent, "the dashed lines in the figures show the parts of the portable display device not forming part of the claimed design."

The single line in all the figures shown in the scheme of the flat face, rounding the edges of the rectangular device. All other identifiable characteristics, such as the speaker grille, round start button, the screen size, the dock connector or even curved back, are not covered by this patent design. "

It is not known if this particular patent will be very useful to Apple in any judgment that might be possible. Design patents are quite strict, so someone would have to copy it word for word to be charged based on this patent infringement.

Apple has as patentees to Steve Jobs and Jony Ive, along with Jody Akana Bartley Andre, Daniel Coster, Daniele De Iuliis, Evans Hankey and other members of the team of inventors of Apple.
