Apple rumored to release tablet
The Apple iPad, iTablet, or iSlate will soon be announced … we hear.
The blogosphere has been buzzing with rumors for the past six months about the date when Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Inc. will release his much-anticipated contraption.
Apple invited the press to view its latest creation Wednesday following reports from the Wall Street Journal that it would hold an event in late January to announce the tablet.
From what we can discern from the rumors, the Apple tablet will rejuvenate the world of print journalism, in that publishers such as Conde Nast, HarperCollins, The New York Times and, recently, The LA Times, will produce editions exclusively for the iPhone.
Apple is also “exploring electronic textbook-technology.”
The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple “envisions that the tablet can be shared by multiple family members to read news and check e-mail in homes.” WSJ also says “it will come with a 10 to 11-inch touch screen.”
Steve Jobs said “This will be the most important thing I’ve ever done.”
