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).
