Another Patent Shows iPad with Second Dock Connector. #ipad #apple


We’ve seen a couple of Apple iPad patents crawl through the USPTO already, showing amongst other things, a dual-dock design. That’s interesting because thus far, all Apple devices have featured a single dock on the bottom of the device. It’s also intriguing because a second dock on the side would hint at new iPad docks for gen 2.

As is always true with new features and designs in patents, however, they’re far from final. Many times over we’ve seen new things appear in patents that never make it into a finished product. This dual-dock iPad 2 design could be another example of that. But with three patents passing by now over the last 5 months all featuring the dual dock design, it’s looking more and more believable. I certainly wouldn’t mind. A choice of dock orientation would be a pretty nifty feature for an already great tablet. What do you guys and gals think?
