  • $799-$999 iTablet in Feb 2010?

    My personal favorite rumor lives on, in a sort of offhand report in Taiwan Economic News:

    The tablet PC features a 9.6-inch screen, finger-touch function and built-in HSPDA (high speed download packet access) module, and adopts a P.A. SEMI processor chip and long lasting battery pack, selling for between US$799 and US$999.
    Computerworld adds the interesting observation that HSPDA support would mean persistent rumors about Verizon becoming Apple's carrier of choice would be false... and AT&T's announcement of coming HSPA rollouts add credence to the report.

    The price point seems a little steep, but in this case, it's at least a little more credible than the $500-$700 rumors Gene Munster was floating a few months back.

      I would love to see Apple finally make a tablet computer, especially at a price like that.
      If they were to make it, hopefully it won't be as fragile as the Macbook Air.

      Sorry, guys, but after the iPod touch camera rumor got busted WIIIIIDE open, I have very little faith in Apple rumors at this point. Yes, I realize there was the prototype, but even so--why no camera??

      It also seems very very odd to me that a tablet Mac would get the 3G treatment before Apple's "ultra-portable" touted MacBook Air would. I mean, they referenced multiple times during the keynote that it was intended to be strictly a wireless device, and it doesn't even support cellular data like some netbooks do today?

      I don't know guys, I mean I would kill a man (as long as he's a PC fanatic) to be able to demo a MBT in my local Apple Store, but the idea seems pretty far off from Apple's current ideals.
