    Apple has created at least three separate prototypes of its tablet computer. Let’s call it “iPad.”

    Version 1 was designed with a 7” screen, which was judged to be too small. The latest version has a 10.7” screen.

    It runs iPhone OS.

    There have been reports that it looks like an iPhone. They’re sort of true. It looks like an iPhone 3G, complete with a curved back.

    It will come in two different variations: one with 3G networking capabilities, and one without 3G networking capabilities. Think of the 3G version as a bigscreen iPhone 3GS, and the non-3G version as a bigscreen iPod touch.

    Screen resolutions will obviously jump considerably from the iPhone and iPod touch 480x320-pixel displays, enabling easy reading of full-sized book and magazine pages, plus cropped newspaper pages. Expect something like 5-6 times the resolution of an iPod touch or iPhone screen (720p or thereabouts) and 7 times the touchable surface area.

    It is designed to expand the iPhone and iPod touch media concept to its next potential level: as a slate-like replacement for books and magazines, plus all of the media, gaming, app, and web functionality of the iPhone and iPod touch.

    It is not meant to compete with netbooks. It’s an iPhone OS media player and light communication device.

    Apple is currently planning to announce it on or before January 19, 2010, and to use an iPhone-like hype buildup period to start selling it in May or June.

    It is apparently awaiting a final green light from Steve Jobs; chances of it appearing in the market are believed to be 80% at this point.

    What a downer if that really is true :/

    goodbye professional market if it truly runs iPhone OS.

    I cannot imagine it being cheaper than the iphone/ipod touch, i dont see why people would spend more on something you need something to carry it with, cant imagine something with a 10.7" screen fitting in your pocket.

    Damn, if it did run the iPhone OS, it would be a real let down, but i still might look into getting it.

    But, rumours are rumours, don't believe till i see.

    I don't believe that they could have the info of an 80% chance, unless Steve himself provided the rumors.

    Someone, somewhere along the rumor line, made this up.
