    [BREAKING NEWS] iProd and iFPGA Detailed Information + Pictures (Pics unconfirmed)

    The two new products are known as ‘iProd’ and ‘iFPGA’.
    I’d expect Apple to change the names first, of course. Firstly, allow me to address iProd.

    At time of writing, the iProd coding reference is followed by ‘0, 1’, implying it’s not yet prepared for commercial availability. Once ready, said reference should be succeeded by ‘1, 0’. But what is this iProd lark all about, anyway? Experts and fans believe it to be a tablet-style portable Mac, not dissimilar to the almost-illegitimate ‘ModBook’.

    If such a Mac was released, Apple may have to make a few changes to Mac OS X, perhaps even releasing a specialised tablet version. Features such as the dock and large desktop icons are fine, but the universal menu which lines the top of the screen may require a makeover.

    iFPGA, on the other hand, is completely different. FPGA is a tad technical: ‘field-programmable gate array’, as is its full name, has the power to improve apps exponentially. Not many people seem to know the full purpose of FPGA chips, so I’m not gonna pretend like I do.

    Verdict

    All in all, it looks as if Apple wants to install the 3.0 OS onto more than the iPhone and iPod Touch. Otherwise, why would such references be mingling with the rest of the code? I eagerly anticipate seeing what happens next…

    NOTE: Pictures are not confirmed, YET

    Those pictures aren't "confirmed"; they're artist's impressions.

    I've seen these mockups plenty of times before. I agree with Abcmsaj.

    First one is way too thick.

    And I doubt they would be going pressure-sensitive, so the stylus would be obsolete.
