Is Apple Testing a Netbook Perhaps?
A nameless search engine company revealed to the New York Times that they spotted Web visits from an unannounced Apple product with a display somewhere between an iPhone and a MacBook. Could it possibly some sort of tablet or netbook?
During a conference call on Tuesday Steve Jobs did comment on the possibility of some sort of Apple network in the future. First Jobs said that the mini-notebooks represent a "nascent market" and Apple would wait and see what that market did before entering it.
Later during the question and answer section of the call Jobs commented further about netbooks saying that the iPhone already handles that market segment well. He then went further to say that Apple "had some pretty interesting" ideas for that market segment but didn't comment further.
Could this mysterious product surfing the internet be some prototype for a netbook? Only Apple knows but there is definitely something there in the secret recesses of Apple.
