Apple patents new screen technology that may allow it to create thinner devices
Well, well, well, what do we have here? A brand new patent has been granted to Apple, which has to do with a new screen technology conceived by the company. Apparently, the way things currently stand, the digitizer (the touch-sensitive element) of the screen is being placed on top of the LCD panel, but with this new patent, Apple envisions the idea of integrating the digitizer withing the LCD panel itself. According to the patent description, this can be achieved in a number of ways. Obviously, this might allow the company to produce even thinner devices for its customers to enjoy. The question is, how comfortable would extremely thin devices be to hold and work with?

Here's brief description of the new patent:
