"Prototypes", LCD drivers, processors. I'm unable to
pull up the patent images right now (I'd give more
specifics) and I'm certainly no patent expert, but the
images, flow charts, etc of those patents seem mighty
specific to certain cell-phone hardware architectures.
The fact that the SLIM-n- squeeze's input device,
display/client, and server are 3 separate devices
separates it from the architecture they've patented.
A follow-up to last week's discussion about possibly
techniques for text entry...
I contacted Tegic, and received a reply yesterday from
Director of Product Marketing, Tegic/AOL:
Thanks very much for writing. Regrettably, we're
not in a position to provide T9 technology or related
patents for open source licensing. If you believe that
your prototype would "arguable fall under the scope of
one or more" Tegic patents, I'd urge caution. By
policy, AOL protects, enforces and defends its
intellectual property rights.
So it looks like that idea is dead in the water. Ho
