Minimal Mac rounds up speculation on Apple’s Tablet.
My speculative fantasy of the Apple tablet includes the following notable items:
- Like the iPhone there will be only a virtual keyboard. The tablet will not be designed to support touch typing. Touch typing was important on a typewriter but on the tablet, as with handwriting on a piece of paper, your eyes will be focused in the general area where your fingers are working.
- The tablet’s networking support will include wifi and bluetooth but not cellular. There will be no contract required with another company. But the speculative iPhone nano may be a cheap tethering device for the tablet.
I can’t be wrong until Apple ships something.
Update: John Siracusa on the tablet — Antacid tablet
Post Announcement Update: I was wrong. I was wrong about a virtual keyboard only and I was wrong about no cellular.
