More rumors and details point that Apple will launch Tablet in Q1 next year
As we last noted that the Apple Tablet is due next year, in comes an analyst's opinion stating that production of the Tablet will begin in February. Yair Reiner, a research analyst at Oppenheimer, stated that Apple's upcoming Tablet would have 10.1-inch LCD screen in a note to investors. This Apple Tablet is anticipated to be launched in March or April next year. He also added that Apple has been talking with book publishers for content offering as well.
The device would sport LTPS (Low Temperature Poly Silicion) LCD technology based 10.1-inch display. Apple would take at least five to six weeks for building up the inventory.
Reiner added that Apple has been approaching book publishers with very attractive proposals to the book publishers for distributing their content. His notes stated, "It should also make eBooks more relevant for education by simplifying functions such as scribbling marginalia." But do we really need yet another eBook reading device which is bound to come a premium price? The average sales price of this tablet is presumed to be $1000, which is as much as the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro.
One must consider that Apple has recently taken over the Tablet Mac trademark from Axiotron, the MacBook modding company. Probably the Tablet Mac is indeed in the making or at least a prototype is being tested. We can't say for sure if Apple Tablet really exists until some grainy photo is leaked or Apple confirms it.
