Tablet talk...

Mac Rumors has finally gotten around to mentioning the latest tablet rumors from Spymac and Macwhispers. The site has yet to go out on a limb and speculate, and seems to be approaching the topic with caution.

Here are some of my thoughts on the subject, straight from the Mac Forums thread on the topic:

Instead of thinking of this as a regular tablet or a PDA (the horror!). Think of this as a sub-sub-laptop. An ultra-mini iBook. A keyboard-less all-in-one wonder portable. That's what this is (or will be, etc.).

Steve Jobs knows all to well that making anything conventional is a bad idea (think of the iMac here, or the iBook, or the iPod, etc.). He's even said that he's unsure the tablet market is ever going to happen. The PC tablet market.

Don't forget, this is Jobsian Apple. We should expect the (mostly) unexpected.
