“The mobile device is scheduled to go on sale in March, said the person, who declined to be identified because details of the product are private,” Guglielmo reports.

“‘We are not going to comment on rumors and speculation,’ said Steve Dowling, a spokesman for Cupertino, California-based Apple,” Guglielmo reports.

  1. Isn’t this like the 3rd of 4th time in the past couple years that Apple was reported to be on the verge of releasing this unannounced tablet? I’m going to laugh my ass off if it doesn’t happen… again.

    If it does happen though, I’ll probably be in line with my wallet open.

  2. I heard a rumor that there was a very solid rumor about a rumored Apple product that was totally real and for sure and the rumor is that it is rumored to ship in March, give or take a rumor.

    See…. right from the horses mouth…. er strike that….. other end. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

    Just a thought,

  3. I’m planning on selling more of my AAPL stock – nothing to do with the stock so much as my need for cash to become a more active trader – and I don’t know what this would do to the price. It has been usual for most companies – other than Apple – to see their price rise when they introduce a sweet new product. Apple has typically done just the opposite! Stock price rises ahead of MWSF then crashes on the news of an exciting new iMac (or MacBook, or iPod, or …). This royally SUX ! ! ! But it didn’t matter while I was in it for the long haul. Now I want out with a generous profit. Oh. Wait. It could drop 10% and my profit would STILL be generous. Hmmm.

  4. Hey Raidin I’m sure there’s a Home Depot where you live. You’ll have to get there early, I would imagine, if you’re looking for a beefy one with big hands.

    What’re you doing, thinking outloud? Perhaps you’re in the wrong thread? Or are you just bragging?

    Sell! Reap the profits and share it. Just make sure you receive something of equal, or better value.

    Otherwise, keep it all to yourself. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

    I knew about the tablet, but a ship?
    Will they call it “The iiMinnow”?
    To take to the iIsland?

    But wait a minute…this is Apple
    For the family, they will offer the iJupiter3,
    and business class can take the iEnterprise…..
