Apple Patents MagSafe for Portable Devices Like the iPad and iPhone

This would be awesome for the iPhone and iPad as long as it can also be used for syncing, unless Apple is planning on syncing everything over the air.
From Patently Apple:
On October 7, 2010, the US Patent & Trademark Office published a continuation patent application from Apple that may reveal their intention of integrating the MagSafe power connector into future portables such as the iPhone or iPad. Apple put the pedal to the metal on this continuation patent filing which was only filed in June of this year. Is someone in a rush or something?
