Message Text: Apple has won an injunction against some Motorola smartphones, regarding a "slide-to-unlock" feature on smartphones, a decision that could be also used against Google's Android devices.

The district court in Munich on Thursday granted an injunction against some of Motorola's smartphones. The injunction is related to an Apple patent for unlocking touchscreens on select Motorola devices sold in Germany, according to a Motorola.

However, Motorola has implemented a new design for the feature, so the company says the injunction will not have an impact on current supply or future sales.

Earlier this month Apple temporarily had to remove some of its products from the online store serving Germany, due to an injunction related to a Motorola patent.

The ruling could affect patent disputes involving Android device makers worldwide, as US and EU regulateros have recently approved Motorola's acquisition by Google.
