Good Question 4np.

When it comes to devices, the patent specifically states "a display screen may be provided in an electronic device, including, but not limited to, a handheld electronic device such a media player or a mobile telephone. The display screen may be touch-sensitive for user inputs, and therefore may include multiple component layers."

The door is wide open to anything on Apple's mind, 4np, as they use the "but not limited to" phraseology.

The Display Window Assembly patent somehow makes me think back to the 3D Display patent application (see: http://www.patentlyapple.com/patently-apple/2011/07/apple-reinvents-how-3d-displays-could-one-day-deliver-content.html ). The Display Window Assembly patent shows a screen in 3 layers, which actually looks like the 3D Display patent. Could this be about the rumored Apple Television?
