Solar cell recharging prepped for iPod and iPhone

Apple has filed a patent application for a portable device in the line of an iPod or iPhone which will feature solar cells that can harness the power of the sun to keep it juiced up so that you can make that extra phone call to close the multi-million dollar deal that you’ve long gone after. The system is also capable of monitoring the current battery state to decide whether it needs some recharging or not. The solar cells’ position can be flexible, being placed on the front as well as back so that it will have a larger surface area to harvest more potential power. Could this feature be included in the new iPod or iPhone sometime down the road?
