Patent suggests swappable Windows Phone accessories
posted by Michael H. / Sep 27, 2011, 11:02 PM
phone would have a display, and multiple swappable accessories ranging from keyboards to gamepads, and from the image, it looks like even a secondary display for easy editing of movies. The patent could also cover independent devices that communicate through various wireless protocols to interact with each other.
We're not too sure how this could all work in a consumer device, and we're not even sure that Microsoft is a company that could market such a device, given its history with hardware. But, it's certainly interesting. You guys have any ideas for practical uses?

hey thats a good idea for phone manufacturers for android lol, they should of thought of this first... btw i wonder what those other interchangeable parts are, like the one that looks like it has a piece of film on it, or the one with the picture of a battery on it?
