“As the Apple tablet rumor frenzy blows way past the level of a fever pitch, I’m starting to reconcile myself with the notion that we may — within a few weeks — finally hear from Apple. The company is widely expected to make a public announcement Jan. 27 or so, though again, the expectation isn’t due to Apple, it’s due to a report stating the company has rented a stage at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco,” Chris Maxcer writes for MacNewsWorld.
“What might Apple announce? A tablet, of course, perhaps an “iPod slate.” E-readers and tablets were all the rage at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last week, so maybe the timing is finally right for Apple. Either way, if Apple does indeed announce a new device, I’m starting to seriously wonder if I’ll actually buy one,” Maxcer writes.
Maxcer writes, “However, I’m already afraid it’ll cost too much money.”
MacDailyNews Take: Too much money for whom?
Maxcer writes, “I’d guess less than the US$999 entry-level MacBook and higher than $500… Big money. As a consumer, I could buy a limited e-reader for a few hundred bucks or get something more useful for hundreds more. And it’s this hundreds more that makes me pause.”

MacDailyNews Take: Some people’s definition of “big money” do not match other’s. Some Dell shoppers, for example, are appalled that a MacBook starts at $999. Because they’re ignorant. As we all are about Apple’s tablet right now. Let’s wait to see Apple’s product, discover what it offers, and find out its price before hyperventilating, okay? As always, please Anticipate Responsibly™.
