“Apple tablet rumors started verging into the ridiculous Thursday morning with reports that Apple has pushed back the project’s launch date yet again. Those same sources are saying Apple is developing a high-end tablet that could retail for as much as $2000, according to Digitimes,” Ian Paul blogs for PC World.
“Even more preposterous is the news that major magazine publisher, Conde Nast, has decided to develop products for the tablet, according to Peter Kafka over at All Things D. There’s only one snag to the publisher’s plan: the company doesn’t know whether the Apple tablet is real or not,” Paul writes. “These rumors are getting so ridiculous that I think it’s time we accepted the truth: the Apple tablet is dead; in fact it probably never existed.”
Paul writes, “Let’s face it: the Apple tablet is a mirage created by legions of fanboys and tech dreamers. The closer you get to that mirage, the more you realize it’s not going to be there when you arrive. But then, off in the distance, an even brighter and more beautiful tablet is envisioned for a day that will never come. It’s a nice dream, but it’s just not going to happen.”
