The US Patent and Trademark Office officially published a series of 15 newly granted patents for Apple Inc. today. Besides winning 5 design patents covering the iPod Classic and iPod nano, the notables within this group include one that relates to the iPod being used as a remote control and another that relates to color correction information in a camera. The latter is perhaps the most interesting granted patent published today - due to the fact that Apple has just filed a patent infringement law suit against Kodak. Yet on a second note, Apple's aggressiveness against Kodak could also be a sign that Apple is planning yet a further push into cameras in the future that cover both digital still and video cameras. Apple's granted patent image noted above is not that of an iPod camera but rather a traditional stand alone camera which is in line with a patent application they filed in July 2009. While today's granted patent could have simply been covering a basic "conceptual camera" for illustration purposes only, one could never know what Apple has on their roadmap until they announce it. Stay tuned.
