Submission + - Move Over Apple - Samsung Files For a Patent on Page Turn (

Nate the greatest writes: Remember last year when Apple received a patent on the faux page curl in iBooks? Lots of people laughed at the idea that Apple could patent the page turn, but not Samsung. This gadget maker has just filed for their own page turn patent. The paperwork explains in great detail what the page turn looks like, how the software would work, and what on screen gestures could be used to turn the page. There's just one problem, though. Not only does Apple already have a similar patent, but quite a few ebook apps already use a similar faux page turn, Can Samsung really get a patent on such a common trick?
