RIM Applies for Two More Fuel Cell Patents

RIM Fuel Cell

It seems like RIM is doing some serious R&D into fuel cells for BlackBerry smartphones. Engadget uncovered two more fuel cell technology patents for putting fuel cells into electronics. One is for the design of the frame and one for the fuel cell container itself. The patents highlight how you would fit the fuel cell into a device.

No word on if this will see the light of day before 2020 but its nice to see how far in the future RIM is looking. Check out the patents Here (USPTO) and Here (USPTO).

  1. I hope we can see these fuel cells in BB10 phones. One of critical components (and is is often ignored by the other smartphone platforms) for a smartphone is battery life. IPhone doesn’t have it; Android still doesn’t have it; neither do Windows Phones. BlackBerry kind of lost this edge with their the newer faster BlackBerry 7 phones. These fuel cells will give these new faster BB10 phones the edge.
