However… we’ve been teased like this before. Way back in May of 2008 (that’s 112 internet years?) Jason O’Grady wrote; “A little birdy tells me that Apple will announce a 12 or 13-inch tablet in the fall of this year… presumably [running] Intel’s Atom,” and that “This particular birdy has been reliable in the past.” That same ‘birdy’ is available for palm and tarot card readings. Zing! Admittedly, we jumped on the rumors too and posted this 2008 article Rumor: MacBook Touch Coming in October.
Gizmodo also touched on the subject in May of this year when John Herman wrote a fact vs. fiction article with some cool visual mockups. And if you Google “apple tablet” you’ll find tons of conceptual images.
Come on, Apple! Give us what we want!
