The latest Apple tablet tease is that one with a 12- or 13-inch display will appear in September-October.
"It will run the full Mac OS X and have a slot loading SuperDrive, an ‘iPhone-type’ GPS chip and an Intel Core Duo processor, presumably Intel’s Atom," claims Jason D. O’Grady in a ZDnet blog.
"Whether it’ll be a based on the iPhone or MacBook form-factor remains to be seen. You’ll recall that Intel Germany CEO Hannes Schwaderer spilled the beans that an “iPhone” that will be using Intel’s new Atom processor after which he was quickly corrected by Apple. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire indeed."
True? Who’s to say? Still, it’s fun to imagine Mobipocket and eventually a native ePub app running on the inspiration for the tease.
