    Apple has filled a patent application on a two-side interface for hand-led devices (May 10, 2007).

    See United States Patent Application: 0070103454

    Could that be the Bluetooth mouse application that the iPhone may be able to do? I hope so.

    This seems odd. I suppose if the iPhone is unique enough that a patent would make sense. However, to me it seems to just be a form of wireless phone. I don't think it makes sense to patent a wireless phone. I mean, if someone had done that then there would only be one brand of cellphone. What do you all think?
