Now Apple has confirmed that they will be holding a Press Conference on January 26th & the masses are certain that is when the Apple tablet will be released. The details surrounding the event are very closely guarded, as always. The ex-president of Google China claims that he has some information- ‘from a friend’-
According to him, the Aple tablet just looks like a bigger iPhone, with a 10.1 inch multi-touch screen (multi-touch being Apple’s trademark functionality used in the iPhone, iPod touch, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Magic Mouse & Magic Mouse Pro) & an awesome user interface. He further claims that it combines the functions of a Net Book & Kindle, has 3D technology, a virtual keyboard, video-conferencing, e-reader & netbook features. He said that the tablet would sell at less than one thousand dollars & that Apple was planning to produce 10 million tablets this first year.
The price of the iTablet is expected to be under 1000 USD .
There have also been a number of rumours that Apple has asked a number of iPhone application developers to revise their programs for a larger screen device by sometimes next month.
So from all the rumour passing around, the Apple tablet seems like a larger iPhone with a lot of added features.
But to know the exact specifications & features of this well-hyped device for sure, we’ll just have to wait till the 26th of January .
