Following on from Apple’s Q1 2010 earnings that we mentioned yesterday, many of us have been wondering if Apple will unveil its new Tablet PC or the iPhone 4G at their Press Event tomorrow. However, it has been said that Steve Jobs gave a wink and hinted that it will be the tablet device that will be the big news.
According to Electric Pig, Apple COO Tim Cook also added more speculation by saying “I wouldn’t want to take away your joy and surprise on Wednesday when you see our latest creation.” This was just after Jobs announced that Apple had become a $50 billion company.
We are still not certain what the name of the tablet PC will be called yet; the three names in contention are the iSlate, iPad and iTablet. Let us know what one you prefer. It seems that Apple can do no wrong at the moment, and this latest device will only help strengthen the company while others are struggling.
Apple sales have been impressive in 2009, iPhone sales saw a 100% increase with iMac sales up by 33%. However, it was not all good, iPod sales were down 8% over the previous year, this could have something to do with Apple not launching a new model like they have with the iPhone and iMac computers.
If I were a betting man I would say that we will see the new Apple Tablet PC, a new version of the iPhone OS and also a Verizon iPhone.
