Apple gets sued on Siemens camera phone patent – but who invented the camera phone?

Intellectual Property Management Consultant

Apple has been sued on a former Siemens patent now owned by TLI Communications. This patent claims a method of capturing and communicating images using a camera phone.

But who invented the camera phone? In this blog, we use citation analysis to trace back to a 1992 Kyocera patent for capturing and transmitting images using a camera phone. Could this be the original camera phone?

Uses citation searching to identify what may be the first patent filed for a camera phone, filed by Kyocera in Japan back in 1992.
