Well, the scheduled 27th January Apple Press conference will settle a few queries and the word is that March should confirm it with a product release.
Rumours are wild, we will see e-reading, games, mobile phone functionality, the App suite of many thousands running native and a couple of version options down the line. Like the iPhone it will evolve, that is for sure.
Me, I have the cash ready and as much as I hate ‘early adopting’ I feel the need… Does that make me an Apple Junkie or just a tech nerd? If you want the full rumour suite try Gizmodo.
