iMacBookPhonePodTablet? - The UpStream


posted Sunday Jan 3, 2010 by Jon Wurm


There has been a lot of speculation and contemplation leading up to the January 26th release of Apple's new tablet. Apple has kept a tide lid on its Jesus Tablet that could possibly purge the market of those pagan e-readers that Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Sony have flooded the market with. Will it stop with e-readers though? Tablet technology has come a long way and their capabilities extend far beyond e-books. Gladly for us Kaifu Lee, a computer scientist who headed the Apple R&D that led to the development of the Newton and developed Microsoft's Research Division in China then founded Google China, might be able to act as our flashlight app. Lee made a micro blog with his thoughts about the new tablet and translated by GadgetMix.

The Apple Tablet looks like a bigger iPhone that sports an awesome {user interface} packed in a beautiful 10.1-inch screen. The tablet combines the functions of both netbook and {Amazon's (AMZN)} Kindle. It has virtual keyboard for text entry and a webcam for video conferencing.

Apple product users can certainly expect a fun user interface and appealing ascetics (see the artist's rendition to the right)like they have seen before but lots of functionality seems like a great idea too. That would be a step in the right direction but why buy a tablet if you already have a MacBook and/or an iPhone? Maybe Apple is looking to take tablets in a different direction.
