Rumor: Multiple Versions of the Apple “iTablet” On Tap

AppleInsider has a new article up today talking about a new round of what I’m calling “iTablet silly season.” According to AppleInsider, a number of tech stock analysts have received new information about Apple’s unconfirmed tablet computer that is suppose to hit store shelves before the end of Q1, 2010.

“In a roundup of speculation on the still-unannounced device, spoke with a number of analysts about the forthcoming tablet, set to debut in the first quarter of 2010. Most analysts heaped praise on the mythical device, predicting that it will take on a number of markets and eliminate the need for numerous devices.

One analyst, Laura DiDio with ITIC, reportedly provided supposed specifics on the hardware. She said the device will sport a “high-end graphics card” that will offer picture at a “stunning resolution” greater than the iPhone and iPod touch. She also stated that the device will come in “several different models,” suggesting that a 3G-enabled version would be tied to a contract with a wireless carrier such as AT&T.”

    This is such a tough call. I am a fan of and enjoy using both Palm and Apple's products.

    I think that I'd probably get a Palm Foleo running webOS since I really like hardware keyboards. And I think that an iTablet is going to be closer to $1,000 than we think.

    That said, I'm mulling over replacing my 3 year old white MacBook with a 15 or 17-inch MacBook Pro in 2010. If I do, and iTablet is pretty much out of the question.
