We have some interesting news to bring you now, as it has been reported that the U.S Army may be supplied with specially designed handheld devices by Apple, for use on the frontline during duty.

As reported from Apple Insider, commanding general with Research, Development and Engineering Command, Maj. Gen. Nick Justice, visited Apple headquarters at the start of this month, to discuss the upcoming iPad tablet, as well as future ideas that Apple has in place.

It is thought that the U.S Army are keen to experiment with future versions of the iPhone, iPad, iMac as well as MacBook computers.

In the past, the Army has used custom iPods to translate Iraqi on the spot, while Macs have also been used for counter-hacking, along with other Apple hardware for video surveillance.
