Just when I couldn't hate Apple any more. Either it's patented or it's not. Companies need to stop tying up technology with vague patent language. It's ruining this country on many levels. Interesting that Vodafone's release date is close to the reported Mar 23rd Verizon date. What happened to Vodafone saying it would be released in a "few short weeks"? They said that a week and a half ago, and that was 10 weeks before Mar 23rd.
