Rumors about an Apple tablet got a refresh today, with the latest saying we'll see the device in the first quarter of next year.
AppleInsider claims to have it on good authority that we'll see an Apple tablet in 2010. AI cites Apple sources who say that after four years of meticulous development riddled with setbacks, the company is now racing toward an early 2010 launch of a tablet-style device that resembles a giant iPod Touch.
Four years? So what was the hold up? Apparently the project is the brainchild of founder and CEO Steve Jobs and as a result, everything has to be perfect. If even the most minute detail was off, it would back to drawing board at Jobs' request.
AI gives the device a 10-inch screen, 3G connectivity and says things were reset at least a half-dozen times over the past 24 months. However, over the last six months, things have been shaping up nicely and Steve is finally satisfied.
Still nothing solid from Apple and no word on price from AI's sources. That said, we'll just have to wait and see what Q1 2010 brings.
