The BBC article Patents: Apple wins over Motorola in 'slide-to-unlock' ruling describes Apple's victory in blocking two out of three embodiments in Germany.
But is it short-lived? The Android Community article Google patent depicts future lockscreen features on Android. It basically "slides applications" to unlock zones on the display of the Android device. And that folks is design around life!
Thanks to Alan Cooper for the BBC article; yes, I am running to keep up with him!
