iPad Patent Reveals New Design
As new blueprints filed in China reveal, Apple may be adding some of its most-desired and functional features.
Apple’s iPad device, the highest selling tablet computer in history, may soon be receiving a number a changes and improvements to its first generation design.
According to Patently Apple, new patent fillings in China have pointed to potential additions such as landscape viewing and docking capabilities:
“One change is the ability to plug an iPad into a dock in horizontal mode rather than just vertical. The designs show an extra 30-pin connector on the horizontal bezel of the iPad. The second picture shows how the extra dock port could be useful; you can turn the iPad sideways and plug it into a keyboard so that you can type and view the screen in horizontal mode.”
