For all the breathless pontificating and predicting on the worst-kept secret in tech, the Apple tablet, most pundits have pointed to Apple's traditional September press event as the likely launch point for this new product.
Now, some are saying that Apple's unconfirmed September confab will be primarily about music devices, and any tablet PC will remain under wraps until sometime in 2010. According to Mac news site The Loop:
Very reliable sources familiar with the product have said speculation of the tablet being introduced during the September event are flat-out wrong. The Apple tablet, they said, would not see the light of day until the first part of 2010.
Helping this rumor rise above the ill-informed fray is that it was reported by former MacWorld Editor at Large (and sometimes CNET blogger) Jim Dalrymple. Are we going to have Apple tablets this holiday season? Or will we be waiting until sometime next year? Sound off below!
