One thing you can't deny about Apple: they know how to get people talking, hyping, and endlessly discussing their products — even the ones that don't exist yet. We've been hearing rumors of the mystical Apple Tablet for quite some time now, but it does seem that an announcement/unveiling is nigh.
With all the details still up in the air, I thought it would be a good time to put your own personal predictions about the "tablet" out there for discussion and see just how good a prognosticator you turn out to be by the time this whatever-it-is hits the market in March. First, here's a good source for all the latest scoop at Gizmodo.com.
Let us know what you think about these questions:
- What it will look like? (form factor, size, general cosmetics)
- What will it do? Will it mostly combine a bunch of stuff that you now have separate devices for or will it offer something completely new and not seen before?
- Who will it matter to? Consumers only? Business users?
- What will it mean to IT pros?
Just for fun, I've included a poll below with a sampling of the predictions that I've seen here and there.
