WSJ has revealed the following details about Apple ’s tablet, which could either be called
, iSlate or iTablet:
Always partial to the education market, one thing this device might be used for is e-textbooks, presumably including the sort of multimedia content that goes beyond the printed page.
Textbook publishers aren't the only publishers Apple has been talking to. They're chatting up Conde Nast, Harper Collins, The New York Times, and even CBS, Walt Disney Co, and Electronic Arts (for games).
A “Best of TV” service is possible, with a subscription to a set of on demand programs chosen by the consumer.
Those same people are also reporting there is a revamp of iTunes coming, which would separate the purchase of iTunes content from the iTunes application.
The device will have a 10 or 11 inch screen, a virtual keyboard, and “sharing” is mentioned — two ideas being thrown around are the ability to leave sticky notes on the device or even have the camera recognize faces of those using it.
Price is expected to be around $1000, and they'll be selling it to people who already have iPhones and laptops as well.
What do you think? Will you buy the tablet based on the
we’ve heard so far?
