Calacanis on Apple Tablet
A further rumor has surfaced regarding Apple's supposed future tablet that potentially clears up its details. Mahalo chief Jason Calacanis on Tuesday made a brief Twitter post citing a developer working with Apple who says the tablet is real and using a "modified/extended" version of OS X iPhone. What that entails hasn't been made clear, though it implies more than just a higher-resolution iPhone interface.
While multiple tips have pointed to a roughly 10-inch tablet shipping either late this year or early in 2010, uncertainty has still existed as to whether it would use the traditional Mac platform or else some variant of the iPhone's software. A rumor regarding Apple's purported Cocktail album format for iTunes suggested the tablet would be timed with an iTunes update and thus that the tablet will be more of an advanced media player than a regular computer.
