Apple Wins Multiple Touch & MacBook Tablet Patents

From Patently Apple:
In a second wave of granted patents published by the US Patent and Trademark Office for Apple Inc. today, we see that they’ve won several key touch related patents including two relating to virtual keyboards. Yet the one patent that stood out above all, in my view, was a patent that secretly buried a future device that Apple has their eye on: a convertible Macbook-to-iPad-like device. This is definitely going to be the killer device category in the coming years and we could only hope that Apple’s killer device goes from patent illustration to reality in the not-too-distant future.
