A Look At Palm Hardware Patents That Never Materialized

There's no question that Palm has had a long and storied past in the PDA and smartphone market, and they have quite the patent portfolio to back that up.  Tech blog Technologizer has put together something of a slide show that showcases some of Palm's hardware patents that never quite made it into production.  The 11 patents examined range from being before their time such a patent that covers video conferencing with a front facing camera awarded in 2002, to downright bizarre patent covering a candy bar style phone with a fold-out screen that was awarded back in 2001.
