You may know by now that Apple has been awarded Patent Office the "Slide To Unlock" patent. It's a very blatant copying by Android OS. I'm find with it. Companies copy each other all the time. However, the Chinese provincial government of Taiwan is worried that its local firms, HTC, will come under additional lawsuits from Apple.
This is where innovation comes into play. Why not just find a way around the patent? You know, innovate?
See? WebOS has its own way of doing it. I don't see why others like Google can implement their own unlocking mechanism. Android 4 has facial recognition, right?
Here's the thing. Why a lock screen at all?

Note: I know that Taiwan is still recognized by some island nations as an independent country and that China considers Taiwan as a breakaway province. Still, the willingness of Taipei to capitulate to Beijing's wishes shows that its only a matter of time before Taipei begins to take orders from its archenemy.
