Solar iPhone Patent

Solar infused cell phones are nothing new, but soon as a company like Apple is involved the world is all ears.  Their newly minted patent calls for an iPhone that uses a capacitive touchscreen with a layer of solar cells hidden behind it.  Cool, because I would hate to see the aesthetic of the iPhone get ruined with those unsightly photovoltaic cells.  The patent also indicates that the back of the phone might also include the solar tech or use a special material that allows the sun’s ray to shine through to the tasty solar core.
