Apple Tablet The Next-Gen Comic Reader?

photoAn article in the Chicago Sun-Times today by reporter Andy Ihnatko suggests that Apple may be in negotiations to tie up a deal with LongBox, the proprietors of an iTunes-esque electronic comic delivery system.

LongBox’s CEO was interviewed by Andy who dropped hints that they were in ‘a lengthy and complicated agreement with a seriously large company operating in the media space‘ that had ‘received high-profile coverage in both the Engadget and Gizmodo blogs in the previous week‘.

Andy goes on to speculate that this could either be Microsoft’s drawing board stage ‘Courier’ ebook concept or, more likely, Apple for their in-the-pipeline tablet.
