The Apple Tablet will turn out to be real: Apple has told some of its key developers to prepare versions of their iPhone apps that will work on a device with a larger screen, in time for an event next month, January 2010.
Apple has also booked the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco for several days in late January, according to the Financial Times. It’s a very good bet we’re getting a look at this thing within the next 30 days or so.
Developers have been told that the mystery device will be shown off at the event only, but won’t be ready to ship. Apple did the same with the first iPhone.
Apple’s instructions to developers indicate that the tablet will be based on the iPhone OS and will rely on the same iTunes Store that has moved 2 billion apps in a couple of years.
The long wait soon will be over, we will have an Apple Tablet.
I am guessing the the name for this tablet will be: iTab.
