Here Come the Apple Tablet Rumors Again

Atom-iphoneDuck and cover. We’re getting close to Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) and just like clockwork, the Apple Tablet rumors start flying. This one is from Jason D. O’Grady at ZDNet and contains the usual caveats, and reliable sources info that we can all quote in our sleep. But here’s the interesting part about this rumor. O’Grady isn’t talking this summer, he’s talking this fall. Whether or not the timing means anything there is some logic behind it, and I base that on the platform that the Apple SDK will quickly become. If you look at the specs for the rumored Tablet as featured in O’Grady’s post, the logic starts to make sense. O’Grady’s source says a 12 or 13 inch Tablet, (although that’s not what is pictured in O’Grady’s post or here.) but we’ve also heard of smaller form factors that are “larger versions of the iPhone” (much closer in size, I’m guessing to this picture.) Steve Jobs must love the speculation.

Our course at this point, it is still nothing more than a rumor.
