$800 Apple Tablet to Arrive in October?

picture-3Gizmodo is reporting via the China Times that an $800 Apple Tablet will be arriving in October, giving consumers time to stimulate the economy for the Christmas shopping season.   This is yet one more rumor in a book of wild tales about a forthcoming Apple Tablet.   Despite all of the additional reports from companies such as Wintek stating that Apple has placed orders for touchscreens, the $800 price tag seems to suggest a tablet that will not compete with what we’ve come to know as netbooks.   The China Times is leading us to believe the Apple tablet announcement will also correspond with Steve Jobs’ triumphant return to the public spotlight.   Read the full post at Gizmodo.   Would you drop $800 for an Apple Tablet?

    The reason that I didn’t buy an Apple notebook was that it costs twice as much as the Vista notebook that I did buy. The reason that I bought my iPod was that it cost maybe 10% more than the Zune or whatever else was out there. $800 is too much maybe $300 like Techcrunch’s pad. I will not pay twice as much for an Apple logo!

    Well, don’t get too excited about the speculated $800 price tag. My broken English translation skills tell me they’re just BS’ing that price based on the comparably sized and spec’d Sony P series. That said, a fall debut for an Apple tablet is looking more and more likely, and that is worth some excitement.

    Actually, depending on what it looks like in the end, I just might. I’ve half wanted an Apple and an new, small tablet, and it might be worth it. My entertainment world is so tied to iTunes and my iPhone that it’d certainly be an easier sync.

    As far as viruses go Apple doesn’t have any that I know about therefore I might as well be investing in one of these sometime in the near near future…especially since Apple chopped the price down from their usual noting less than $1000.
