MacRumors has commissioned a graphic designer to make an interactive 3d of the iPad Mini.

Two decisions in two different countries about the same patent issue in a single day. How’s that for coincidence? An Apple vs. Samsung fight over a couple of user-interface patents has been decided independently in both South Korea and the US today.
