Apple tablet rumor roundup

The Green Room Blog has “a visual guide to the many months of rumours surrounding Apple’s rumoured Tablet.”

The site offers “a list of sources with a number, these numbers correspond with the numbers” to a graphic image of Apple rumored device.

Check it out here.


  1. Now that’s research and not just another rumour piece fresh from the reliable person everyone seems to know these days.

    I still maintain, if iPhone unveiling was any clue, Apple’s design will think differently. But at least these guys have a decent shot at it that is comparable with a context.

  2. the only thing I keep missing is the “why”? All this hullaballoo about a tablet that doesn’t fill a mysterious niche, doesn’t create a new way to compute, and frankly does nothing to replace the touch/iphone. I could see if they were doing the 10″ inch netMac for $500 with a touch panel replacing the keyboard, but the whole tablet market is rather pointless

  3. How long does before a rumored announcement event does Apple normally make the event official?

    The rumor is that they will announce something on the 27th right? So that’s 2 weeks from today. Wouldn’t they need to make it official like real quick to give people a chance to make plans to attend?

  4. Here’s my guess: the tablet will feature tactile feedback (haptic).
    This time, Apple will be making physical keyboards 100% irrelevant.
    People are still trying to figure out multi-touch, well, more is coming.
    It’s funny how analysts don’t report that much on this possible feature.

    Yep, I’m really looking forward to eh… whatever it’ll be called.
    I still remember my first thoughts when I took my iPhone from it’s box: this is heavyer and bigger than my current phone. But it didn’t take me long to realise that, because of the near-perfect shape and the smooth surfaces, it actually was much more comfortable to carry around and use. I count on Apple playing this trick again; I’d love to have a “big iPhone”!

    Here is my take on the Tablet. – Replacement for laptop

    Who wants the Apple Tablet? People who want easy access to email, web, phone, pictures, music and applications whether off the shelf or proprietary.

    They Include but are not limited to:
    Doctors, Nurses, Dentists, Lawyers, Sales Reps, Manufacturers, Waitresses,
    Cab Drivers, Pilots, Military, CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, Teachers, Retailers, PR People, HR, Graphic Design, Printing, Advertising, Door to Door Everyone,

    Sorry if I missed anyone. Perhaps I can get a little help.

    Oh yeah one more, GEEKS, they are going to love it.

    Oh yes, every one on your list is using a tablet right now, and they are waiting for Apple to bring them into the next century with a touch screen. That’s why tablets are such a huge market and Apple’s so late getting their slice. NOT

    Tablets are ludicrous.

  8. @ShadowOfDoubt

    Everyone on that list could benefit from an intuitive, lightweight, hand-computer,
    (I think I will coin that word), that does not need to be opened or held by two hands. Why did HP and those that came before Apple fail ? one word, wait for it,
    wait for it, Windows.

    Taah Daadh , By the way Shadow, lighten up !!!

    Still haven’t heard a reason for the tablet that isn’t covered by the touch or a mac book. Hold it in one hand and point with your finger? That’s the touch. email/web/apps? touch. Bigger screen? laptop.

    Not that Apple can’t go back on itself and make a net mac book. And Apple could stick their logo on a jacket and the faithful will run out and buy it but that still doesn’t answer the question… ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”question” style=”border:0;” />
