    Apple iPad Tablet Computer: Rumor or Reality?


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Apple managed to redefine the MP3 player market with its iPod. It did it again for the smartphone market with its iPhone. Now, rumors are circulating that it plans to do it yet again for the tablet PC market. Should we believe it?

    The Internet has been slammed recently with rumors of Apple releasing a tablet computer within the next year. Apple, of course, has remained quiet on the matter, but many media outlets are heralding the device as the "worst kept secret" in tech.

    News outlets are predicting that the "iPad" will be similar to a large iPhone and would most likely sell for between $500 and $700. Sources have also revealed to the media that the iPad will have a 10-inch touch screen and use an operating system similar to that of the iPhone.

    The tablet computer will also reportedly have music, movies, e-mail, and Web browsing capabilities much like the company's wildly successful iPhone. It is believed that all of the applications will be sold through the Apple app store, but that theiPad's larger screenwould enable multiple apps to run simultaneously.

    The rumors, reports, and assumptions are swirling and sometimes it's difficult to tell fact from fiction. The sources for many iPad stories online are never revealed, and some of the information seems plausible, while other bits of news seem completely far-fetched. An interesting example of a story that substantiates the claim that there will be an Apple iPad comes from an unlikely source: a survey that was recently sent out to customers who shop at a particular bookstore.
