We wanted a 7-inch iPad, but if it will be lighter than before then that is a kick-a** on all major tablet competitions. And this report hints that Apple is prepping for a much lighter, flexible and durable material to house their mobile devices (that’s carbon-fiber), this put the next generation iPad a number one candidate.
A report on Gizmodo via AppleInsider revealed, “Apple is exploring the use of carbon fiber to create reinforced housing for its mobile devices, with the iPad a potential candidate to utilize the strong-but-light material.” and the patent was filed on May 18, 2009.
Even we love the aluminum, yet, we find the carbon fiber that hot to even steal everyone’s heart out. Now we’re not just looking from a customized sportscar wrapped with carbon fiber, yes, could be just in our hands on next-gen iPhone, iPod or iPad, Apple can you just dropped this now?
