True, not all. Just on portable display devices. If you go look up the patent, you'll find that the US design patent is only for a rectangle with rounded corners for a portable display device - every feature other than the rounded rectangle is shown in dashed lines, which means that those features are not part of the claim (as pointed out at the bottom).
