According to some sources; Apple is at it again, and may release a new device to their lineup of phones, ipods and computers. Some speculate that apple will release some sort of iTablet device; whether this will be a fully featured tablet running on an intel processor remains to be seen. It is entirely possible that the new device (if it indeed exists) will utilize the Arm Cortex A8 processor on a larger device than the iPhone. We mentioned some more details on our podcast earlier this week. Give it a listen.
The bottom line in my opinion is that it is about time that Apple does release some sort of tablet device. So much of Apple’s company is tied into the desktop computing market and with their prowess with touch interfaces; It makes perfect sense to combine the two. Not to mention the success of the iPhone and iPod Touch which both make excellent use of touch. The marriage of the two into a tablet like device could be a winner. Especially after seeing the success of “netbooks” if apple released something similar with a touch interface that worked well, they might be onto something very profitable. Either way, we will have to wait till Apple’s press conference to find out.
