Earlier this week Patent Bolt discovered new design patent wins for LG and HP at the US Patent and Trademark Office. LG won a design patent for a very cool and cleanly designed smartphone docking station and Hewlett Packard won for two new computer mouse designs that are their best to date by far. Our report provides you with four large graphics to view.
A Design Patent Notice: Unlike "patent applications," design patents published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office don't reveal pertinent information about a particular design. We can look at the design and appreciate it for what it projects, but we'll never discover which materials may be used to construct the design. We'll never know what unique internal components may be hidden within the device or learn about any unique features that we could look forward to. All we get is the simple visual of what could be coming down the pipeline.With that in mind, we present you with design patents from LG and HP.
LG Wins Smartphone Docking Station Design
LG's smartphone docking station design is very nice with clean lines. So much so, that we were unable to find a micro USB connector break anywhere. This could very well indicate that this dock will offer its users wireless inductive charging. We say "could" because the design documentation doesn't provide us with any detailing that would either confirm or deny such a feature. You could view the design patent documentation here.
