InformationWeek: Apple could find healthy market for $700 touch-screen tablet

“If Apple is building a touch-screen tablet as imagined by a recent analyst report, then the computer maker could find a strong market among consumers willing to pay more for a device that’s easier to use and more functional than today’s netbooks,” Antone Gonsalves reports for InformationWeek.
