What about the possibility that a company in China has already come up with something like this (which is, indeed, the case) and Apple is applying for a patent in order not to develop this product themselves, but rather to stifle anyone else who tries to?

Thanks for sending that example in, Shi. Yet it'll be nicer when I could get the transceiver accessory directly from Apple.

A Chinese company has already made this as commercial product, call Apple Peel 520. see links:

As someone pointed out to me, isn't this called a "modem?" Then again, it's a 2010 patent so it must be something else.
