    Apple iSlate Rummors

    From NYT

    Yes, that’s right, ladies and gentlemen, it’s Apple iTablet time — oops, I mean iSlate time!

    Over the last week, we’ve heard more rumors, some facts and a lot of excitement about the impending Apple tablet.

    Matt Buchanan of Gizmodo recently pulled together an “Exhaustive Guide to Apple Tablet Rumors,” leaving no slate unturned. In brief, Gizmodo believes the device is likely to be called the iSlate, will cost around $800, and will be announced in January, but won’t hit store shelves until March or possibly April.

    Many predictions point to either a 7- or 10-inch display for the tablet. Seven inches would be a manageable size, almost like carrying a paperback book. But what about a 10-inch device? I rummaged under my desk and pulled out an old 2006 model of the Hewlett-Packard Compaq Tablet PC TC1100, pictured above, to try to understand what a 10-inch screen might feel like.
