If I was going on a road trip all I’d want to take with me is a nice compact tablet. It’s starting to sound like this might be more likely than not in the next couple of months. The internet is buzzing over a couple big players announcing that Apple will be releasing a ten inch tablet in September. Could imagine getting a heavily discounted tablet with your purchase of a laptop or desktop in the Fall. Students will be tripping over themselves to throw money Apple’s way. Hell, I’ll be tripping over myself to throw another 800 bones Apple’s way (price speculation). If it plays movies, has decent battery life, and lets me read books, then it’ll be worth the price just to mess around with it (Husbands or Wives everywhere might disagree).
The Financial Times is saying it’ll be able to do all the aforementioned tasks, and that Apple will be touting the devices as a modern day Vinyl case that all of us music lovers can use to relive our glorious wonder years, staring at album art, and reading the liner notes. Hall and Oats have never looked so good. We can all get lost in Oates’ ‘stach now.[via Wired]
