Apple has reportedly got an event scheduled for January 27 and, not surprisingly, people are really banking on the company announcing the tablet we in the tech world has been talking about for the last year.
There have been a ton of rumors since late December. Suffice to say, everyone is really worked up about this product. A report in the Wall Street Journal this week cites people briefed by the company who say the device will ship in March with a pricetag of around $1,000. John Paczkowski at All Things D cites "sources in a position to know" who say Apple is planning a major media event for later this month (Wednesday, January 27 to be precise). These "sources in a position to know" say Apple will be launching a product at this event.
Word on the street just before the new year hit was that Apple had booked the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Fransisco for later this month.
Are you excited about the Apple tablet? We were a little excited at the beginning but now that CES is promising more tablets than you could shake a stick at – and for a lot less money if rumors are to be believed – we're just kind of "meh" on the subject.
