You know, now that the new iPod nano 5G and iPod touch 3G have come out in the open, I had hoped to witness somewhat of a cool-down in the field of Apple-related rumors. However, it would seem that the truth is a pretty different one, since leaks regarding a possible future Tablet PC by Apple
are still abundant over the Internet.
So, the latest info in the field of iTablets comes (quite naturally, I might add), from Taiwan, namely an article from Taiwan Economic News
, where industry sources are quoted in order to paint a pretty interesting (and might I add, detailed) picture of the forthcoming Apple product, as well as of some of the components that are likely to become a part of the future device.
So, it seems that the future tablet will sport a 9.6-inch display with multi-touch support, as well as a built-in HSPDA module, used for accessing the Internet. Furthermore, it will also apparently sport a fairly impressive battery pack, plus a very strong and serious processor, able to rise up to the challenge of Internet browsing or multimedia playback.
The rest of the article goes on saying which Taiwanese companies have won what contracts with Apple
, but that's less important, in my opinion. What is important, though, is the fact that a possible price range for the future tablet has also been suggested, and we're apparently talking about something in the US$799 and US$999 interval.
Furthermore, the same sources quoted above seem to indicate February 2010 as the most likely release period for this tablet, which was to be expected, given the fact that the next MacWorld Expo is scheduled to take place between the 9th and the 13th of February, 2010, in San Francisco.
And one last thing....I wonder whether this thing will be called an iTablet or a MacBook Touch, or perhaps an iBook? What do you think? Any other possible names for this thing? We are just a few, but there are many of you, Softpedia users, out there.
