Rumors about Apple tablet are becoming stronger. I have been hearing about Apple Tablet since the early 2009. So far, this is what we know about the device. First, it will be called iSlate or iTablet. The iSlate name was trademarked two years ago or earlier. It will have a 10 inch or 6 inch touchscreen that would allow readers to read papers and other documents, browse the net or watch movies. The price of the device will remain somewhere between $500-$700 or even lower than $500. Finally, the launch date; according to Financial Times’ report, Apple rented a large space in San Francisco for January. It is the same place where Steve Jobs showed Apple’s newly improved iPod. Boy Genius has been tipped by a reliable source that a 7 inch tablet will be released very soon. Business Insider said that Apple told its selected app developers to develop “full-screen versions of their application.”

One group of people is saying that it will be like an extended version of iPod Touch where you can download necessary apps from the Apple app store.

Another group of people is saying that the device would run on Mac OS X and if necessary, it could also run on Windows 7 which also supports multitouch system.

Now, the million dollar question is- Will it become successful? Currently, there are several tablet PCs in the market and almost all them are used for special purpose such as medical, education and so on. When Apple iPhone was launched no body could think that the device would be so much popular. Apple has been very successful in producing consumer centric devices. So, there is lots of doubt but there is also hope.
