The apple tablet is all but confirmed now.  For a quick recap of rumors up until now, visit this site.

I was wrong when I predicted it would be announced in 2009 and not 2010.

But …. here is my predictions from here about it from here:

  1. Like the iPhone, it won’t be revolutionary in any ONE thing, but the way we interact with it will take current technology and make it just “work” (aka how iPhone does sms text messages – seams so obvious to have a chat log thread).
  2. It will do three (maybe four) things quite well, but not as much as we might think.
  3. It will be a e-book reader (but think more than just “e-books” think any electronic documents)
  4. On the Operating System (OS) front, I still think it will be closer to OSX than it will be to the iPhone OS.
  5. It will have a sim slot for data connection, and of course wi-fi (n)
  6. It will play videos well.  It will have something new here.
  7. It will be 10″.  They may have a smaller 7″ version as well (maybe)
  8. It will be around $US 600 (but as usual be more expensive overseas, so in NZ expect around $NZ 1000 = $US 700/750)
  9. It will be announced in late Jan 2010, and made avail for sale March/April 2010.
  10. Oh, and I will probably get one :-)

Black and White Version: The Apple tablet will be less about WHAT it does, and more about HOW we interact with it.
