New Apple iPhone 5 and iPad 2 Designs

iPhone 5 Redesign Beta

When will the new iPhone 5 be released by Apple? Sooner than you think with iPhone 5 and iPad 2 designs submitted to the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) this morning. The new iPhone 5 and iPad 2 patents suggest they will be slimmer, more powerful, battery efficient, power saving, and possible touch screen redesign.

"In many cases, the size of a portable electronic device can be limited by the size of the operational components used therein..." the application reads. "As such, there can be a desire to make these operational components smaller, thinner, more cost effective, and more power efficient, while maintaining or increasing their functionality to perform operations."

“Apple's proposed invention would have conductive nodes placed on a surface opposite a touch panel or display. The two surfaces would be in close proximity, which would allow conductive electrodes and conductive nodes to sense fingertips on the touchable surface.”

Some other additions could be made with the iPhone 5, including antenna adjustment to alleviate the death grip reception problem, possibly ditching the “Home Button” at the bottom of the screen, glass that is non-smudge and crack resistant, more memory (64GB and up), 4G capabilities, and possible Bluetooth 3.0. We also have the possibility of one chip including multi-band GSM, CDMA, and LTE technology to eliminate Apple making two different phones for Verizon and AT&T and just make one compatible for both cell phone networks.

clock January 11, 2011 18:15 by author Ty

Duracell has launched a new line of Duracell Portable Power Inverters and Duracell Laptop Power Adapters for this year in 2011. The new portable power products include a first to market advanced USB 2.1 Amp charging ports available on power inverters and laptop power adapters.  For today’s power-hungry USB electronic devices, recharging can be done twice as fast for iPads, iPods, tablet PC Pads, e-Readers, and smartphones with the new 2.1 Amp USB charging port.

The new Duracell Portable Power Inverters include the Mobile inverter 30, Mobile Inverter 100, Pocket Inverter 100, Pocket Inverter 175, and the Power Inverter 130.  All of the new Duracell power inverters come equipped with AC to DC power, 2.1 Amp port charging capacity, high-quality cooling technology, low fan noise, and efficient power.

The Duracell laptop power adapter family now offers the Universal 90-Watt AC Adapter and the Universal Energy Efficient 90-Watt AC Adapter. These new laptop power adapters meet strict EnergyStar efficiency requirements with a 90 percent reduction of power consumption over similar laptop power adapters on the market. “Both models include 10 patented voltage-controlling tips to ensure safe, efficient power to all popular laptop models from top manufacturers including Acer, Asus, Compaq, Dell, Gateway, HP, IBM, Lenovo, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and more. The additional USB 2.1 Amp power port can simultaneously charge thousands of popular handheld devices.”

The new Duracell Portable Power Inverters and Duracell Laptop Power Adapters will be available to consumers Spring 2011 with a MSRP cost ranging from $29.99 to $59.99 and a full 3-year warranty.
