Rumors that Apple was going to release a Tablet computer have been running abound for years. However, it appears that the Apple Tablet is going to become reality next week, Jan. 27th, 2010. People in the know think it will resemble an iPhone, albeit a lot larger. It won’t run a typical operating system like other PC tablets out there. So, what do I think of this? To be honest, I’m not all that excited.
I have an iPhone and I love it. I don’t know how I lived without it. Combined with my MacBook Pro, they’re the two most useful tech tools I have in my arsenal (other than my brain I guess). But I just don’t see how I’d use an Apple Tablet computer. It just doesn’t seem all that useful of a tool to me. Maybe I just don’t know enough about it. What would I need a “larger iPhone” for?
I’m actually a little afraid that this could be another “Mac Cube” miss-step for the folks over at Apple.
