Inside Information on the Apple Tablet

Posted August 13, 2009 at 12:12pm by iClarified
An insider has provided some interesting information on the Apple Tablet to Gizmodo.

Bian Lam, writes I never fully believed the Apple tablet was real, until I heard these words over my phone: "Hey, it's [redacted]. I may or may not have sat in some Apple meetings for the tablet."

A new source (verified to a high level of certainty) reveals some interesting details about the tablet.

"The device, which I've held mock ups of, is going to have a 10 inch screen, and when I saw it looked just like a giant iPhone, with a black back— although that design could change at any time"

"with the same black resin back, and the familiar home button."

"But it will come in two editions, one with a webcam and one for educational use."

The source said the device will cost between $700-$900 ie "More than twice as much as a netbook,". To add value it may act as a secondary screen/touchpad for iMacs and MacBooks.

Apparently, the project has been a work in progress for 4-6 years; however, the first prototype was built at the end of 2008. "The time to market from first prototype is generally 6-9 months." This would suggest a September announcement which falls in line with past rumors.

"There was a question of what OS the device would run, too." Gizmodo notes that other sources confirm that the OS for the tablet is a huge secret...

Gizmodo was able to obtain the code name for the project; however, they were asked not to share that information. Can you figure it out?

Later, I asked, was there a code name for the project?


I thought about it for a second, googled the term, and it all made sense.

"Don't publish that name, please, " they requested.

Don't worry, I won't.
