A recently filed patent by Apple Computer reported by Macworld has pointed to a possible mobile phone device, or long-awaited “iPhone”, that could serve as the next generation of the iPod as well as allow the company to branch off into new markets.
According to a report on Bloomberg.com, the patent describes a “tube-like” device containing zirconia and alumina that would be “cost effective, smaller, lighter, stronger and aesthetically more pleasing than current” designs.
The introduction of the patent is sensible, especially with Macworld Expo just around the corner in San Francisco in little more than a month. The iPhone would face considerable competition from new generations of cell phones capable of increased functionality as MP3 players as well as PDA-like devices.
Speculation for an “iPhone” device has been a favorite topic of many Mac users, many of them wishing to see Apple improve where current cell phone manufacturers fall short.
A short but popular concept video by award winning filmmaker Christopher DeSantis details what a potential iPhone, or “iTalk”, might be like in terms of form, function and appearance.




Odds are the actual Apple phone wouldn’t float.
