The Final Round of Apple Tablet Rumors
As of tomorrow there will be no more Apple tablet rumors to swirl around and debate endlessly — the damned thing will finally be announced. In memory of the esteemed journalistic practice, here are today's final speculations.
Everyone seems to think that Mashable has posted a picture of an actual tablet, although the reflections look pretty fake to us.
- The Los Angeles Times say that the New York Times have been in Cupertino for the last month working on content for the tablet "that incorporates video". No word on whether the LA Times itself have joined them.
- The NYT, in a piece about the tablet's impact on the media, have confirmed details:
It will run all the applications of the iPhone and iPod Touch, have a persistent wireless connection over 3G cellphone networks and Wi-Fi, and will be built with a 10-inch color display, allowing newspapers, magazines and book publishers to deliver their products with an eye to the design that had grabbed readers in print.
- Meanwhile Steve Jobs has alluded to the launch for the first time, while talking about profit increases at his company. He called it "a major new product that we are really excited about."
This time you only have to wait a day to see if they come true!
