Rumors regarding the Apple tablet have been circulating for a long time now, originally we thought that the device would be announced at the ‘Rock and Roll’ media event back in September, however it is now expected to be announced on January 27th at an Apple press event.
The invitations to the event give no hard evidence that the iSlate will be revealed, however they do read “”come see our latest creation”, it would be a surprise if this ‘latest creation’ wasn’t the iSlate.
Many believe that Apple may also announce their iPhone 4G or iPhone OS 4.0 at this event, however I feel Apple’s priority will be to announced their Apple iSlate as pressure is growing from the Microsoft Tablet.
The leaked specifications suggest that it will feature an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM and a 120GB hard drive, this should give the device a solid backbone..
Mac OS X (10.6) Snow Leopard’s requirements are just an Intel processor, 1GB of RAM and 5 GB of free disk space, therefore if the iSlate features a cut-down version of Snow Leopard the hardware within does not need to be extremely high-end.
What hardware specifications and pricing would you like to see for the upcoming Apple iSlate?
