New Apple Tablet Rumors Emerge, Coming January?

We can’t give you that pony you’ve been wanting for Christmas, but we can give you some tasty Apple tablet information, which has been arriving in rumor form. The Financial Times has identified an Apple event reservation for the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts for January 26th. Oft-cited analyst Gene Munster is giving even odds that the product to be launched will be either the medium or large device.

The New York Times’ Bits blog has held conversations with both current and former senior Apple employees on the tablet topic, and points out that several technologies found in the current iPhone came out of the tablet project as well as stalled prototypes from five years ago. In one case, an Apple employee was quoted as saying “I can’t really say anything, but, let’s just say Steve is extremely happy with the new tablet.” A former Apple staffer also quipped that “You will be very surprised how you interact with the new tablet.”
