“iSlate” rumour

Will the 'iSlate' finally bring dedicated Internet tablets to the masses?

Via Wired
Apple will unveil a “major new product” at the
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco on Wednesday the 27th
of January.

According to the Wall Street Journal,
the device will cost $1,000, feature a “10 to 11-inch touch screen” and
will be unveiled later this month, with shipping to commence in March.
“iSlate.co.uk” is also owned by MarkMonitor and with the UK being a key
market in Apple’s portfolio, it would make sense to cover its
bases in this way. In addition, iSlate.jp (Japan), iSlate.cn (China)
and iSlate.fr (France), further key markets for Apple, have also been
linked to MarkMonitor, and this seems like too much of a coincidence to
presume that a large company wasn’t involved in scooping up the most
profitable world markets.
