  • Images Surface of Apparently Apple Branded Tiny Touchscreen

    New and intriguing photos have surfaced courtesy of the very folks who have a history of successfully showcasing many iPhone components and parts before the devices are formally introduced to the public. The Taiwanese blog Apple.pro has published curious pics of what appears to be a relatively dinky Apple-branded touchscreen or LCD display.

    In May, the blog made waves and generated no shortage of attention for displaying the white panel of the iPhone 4 weeks before the next generation Apple smartphone was unveiled at the 2010 WWDC. This, of course, is just one example of a recent "inside scoop" to which Apple.pro has been privy. Of course, on occasion, they've gotten it wrong - like a false call that Apple would roll out a 15-inch MacBook Air. Nonetheless, these images are certainly thought-provoking, even though no one on the outside knows what the small screen could ultimately be used for.

    One theory presented by Apple.pro, however, suggests that the little screen may eventually find its place in an iPod touch nano, iPod touch shuffle, or a some other yet-to-be announced product or iDevice that is customized for a minuscule touchscreen. Needless to say, until we get a better idea of the hardware that will accompany this uncovered screen, we simply can't nail down any definitive estimates for its potential application. The site even created a hypothetical image of the screen in use for the still-imagined iWatch.

    In the grand scheme of things, though, Apple would have to alter its current hand-held product line pretty substantially to accommodate this screen, which simply wouldn't mesh, for example, with the current iPod nano.

    Only time will tell what Apple is up to (if anything) with this one.

      You guys realize this thing is about the size of an iPod nano screen? There is NO WAY this could be a trackpad.

      One can only dream.

      I, for one, can't really even see the purpose of a trackpad screen. Seems incredibly pointless to me. I would hope they would make a touchscreen macbook before they added a touchscreen trackpad...

      I can live with being a nerd if it means I can check emails, Bluetooth music, etc with it.
