While the whole live world is holding it’s breath for tomorrow’s earth-shattering Apple Event, Eugen Erhan and Tudor Muscalu from Fredo&Pid’Jin have drawn a little view of the upcoming event of their own.
The amount of rumours, having circulated around the iTablet in general and the possible upcoming event at the end of January in particular has probably been second to none. Some of bloggers out there have taken a tally and counted up to 70 news pieces on the Saturday following Christmas alone. And all of this without any confirmations from the big A themselves.
When I gets excited, I drop me grammar. Apple ain’t only gonna put up a new event, they is definitely debuting something. I reckon the ‘come see our latest creation’ ain’t just a new MacBook – though with my bloody breaking MBP, that would be nice – it will prolly be something ever more sexy. Think iSlate. Ain’t nothing confirmed yet, but the web’s knickers are all bunched up about the same thing: Apple’s iSlate tablet computer.
Bad Apple. How can you blind your faithful fans with happy lights whilst causing the frowns of your competitors? How can you sit back feigning that ain’t nothing happening and meanwhile sink the world’s OLED touch screen tugboat?
Like shooting at F2.8, the Nexus One is wide open thanks to the destructive geeks at ifixit.com. Evidently, the new phone is thoughtfully designed, at least as it applies to tear downs. Indeed, nothing really new under the hood, but the poor thing does go to pieces pretty well. That and Google’s OS under the hood should make this a very interesting buy and wonderful competition for the iPhone.
Hironobu Sakaguchi, the mastermind behind the fabled Final Fantasy series, now has his mind set on Apple’s mobile gaming platform – the iPhone. Mr. Sakaguchi and his team at Mistwalker rung in the New Year with a bang and teaser message on the website:
“2010 is the year of my long-awaited new blockbuster project…
Oh, by the way, We are also working on a project for iPhone.
This should be released soon as well.
We will put our efforts together and do our best!
I’m sure you’ll Love it.”
While no more information was given, it’s more than enough to make us salivate and hope that the game runs along the lines of Final Fantasy or Blue Dragon. Whatever the case maybe, just knowing that this “blockbuster project” is being created by a gaming legend is more than enough reassurance that it will indeed be awesome.
So, 2010 has arrived on a positive note thus far, and there’s much to look forward to.
Let the speculating commence!
Nokia have joined the myriad companies who have it in for Apple, attacking everything from WiFi to them darn cellular waves. Then, Apple countered with a suit of its own. That was fall 2009; but winter cometh and Nokia are back at it, this time gunning for every Apple gizmo to grace the hands of fans since… forever. The most recent suit lays claim to patents which would affect “virtually all” Apple products.
It looks like Apple’s long, long, long-rumoured tablet computing device may have a name: iSlate. MacRumors report that Apple have held the name since 2007 when they purchased the iSlate.com domain name. Heading to the site now, doesn’t reveal much, but with Apple’s preference for secrecy, it is no surprise. Apple’s 26 January event — which just happens to be Apple’s _magical Tuesday_ — will cause me to fold my pessimistic hand. There will be a new touch-device unveiled in January. Whether a reader or a tablet, something is coming and it looks exciting to say the least.
In preparing a great title for this short article, I chewed through about 10 trees worth of paper. Nothing seemed to fit and I tossed the dried carcasses into a throwaway plastic basket. You see, the Apple Tablet has been rumoured ever since the Newton made the mistake of hyping itself in a Steven Seagal movie. Well, rumours are coming to another head just ahead of the WWDC, CES, and about every other big meeting capitalised by thousands of geeks.
- Apple officially announces iPhone 4
- iPhone 4 available on June 24 in US, France, Germany, Japan and UK
Some say rumours travel faster than light. While there is no actual way to prove this, the whole Apple community lives and thrives on them. It even seems to have found a way to actually harness the power of rumours to stay afloat. And now, following the recent appearance of the possibly hi-res iPhone 4G (iPhone 3,1) in Apple’s firmware, the future versions of the OS have been spotted in the wild as well. All of this may also point to the iSlate.
