Apple Brings Back Old Tablet Developer

Apple has brought Michael Tchao on board as Vice President of Product Marketing. Reporting directly to Phil Schiller, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Product Marketing, Tchao comes from Nike's Techlab, the division responsible for all the Nike+ gear. However, it's not Tchao's years at Nike that has people talking.

You see, prior to working for Nike, Tchao worked for Apple as one of the leading developers on Apple's Newton personal assistant hardware/software platform. No one at Apple has said Tchao will be working on another tablet or PDA but, as you can imagine ever since the news hit the blogosphere, folks have been speculating as to whether or not Tchao is there to market Apple's yet-to-be-confirmed tablet that is expected in early 2010.

Check out the full story here.

  • "Because it wouldn't be right if there wasn't at least one Apple tablet rumor a week, now would it?"

    As for the news.. that makes sense. I suppose we have to wait and see.

  • I am not an Apple fanboy, but that is very good news for their tablet platform. I wrote software for the Newton and it was an amazing platform.

  • wasn't the newton a failure? if it was then this would be like Nintendo bringing back the creator of the virtual boy to make the next console
