6 November 2007 @ 11:30Apple’s Tablet by Asus
I’m not one to take much stock in rumors, but this one interests me. According to Crave, they “were told in a very hushed manner: ‘Asus is helping Apple build a Tablet PC.’”
We checked back with our source at Asus on a different day and they confirmed that the Apple Tablet will not be based on existing Asus designs such as the R1. It will come from a completely new blueprint, possibly based on the patent Apple filed back in May 2005. We’re guessing it’ll be based on Intel Core architecture, a tweaked version of Leopard, and have all the multi-touch, CoverFlow goodness we’ve seen in the iPhone and iPod touch.
