Apple’s 10-inch tablet display a myth?

Apple Online Store“Next week, Apple unveils a tablet about which rumors have been swirling for the past year,” Tom Kaneshige reports for CIO.

“If you’re the betting type, here are some more good odds: the tablet will be called an iSlate, have much more capability than simply an e-reader, boast a 10-inch touchscreen and sell for less than $1,000,” Kaneshige reports. “That’s all well and good-but at least one technologist isn’t convinced.”

Kaneshige reports, “Not about a 10-inch touchscreen, anyway.”

“Aaron Vronko, CEO of Rapid Repair, an iPod and iPhone repair shop, took a hard look at hardware options for a tablet that would impact system performance, battery design and power capacity,” Kaneshige reports. “His key conclusion: An Apple tablet won’t debut with a 10-inch touchscreen, which has been widely predicted.”

  1. It makes sense what the guy is saying… but we will see next week. We don’t know what battery they are using, screen etc. etc. etc. Wait till next analyst. I will predict that it has an on and off button. how bout that b!tches!!

  2. Because there is a fixed volume that is taken up by the CPU and other electronics, the larger the screen the more the battery volume/area matches the screen and bigger is better. So, Aaron Vronko’s argument has no logic behind it. Apple already showed us in the MacBooks that the battery can be everywhere in the unused space of a one piece machined aluminum body.

  3. I’ve got a “trusted” source that backs ChrissyOne’s claim, but adds that so-called hybrid cars will debut within 2 years.

    Seriously, who in the hell thinks that a CEO of a repair shop for iPods and iPhone knows what they are talking about?
