According to Apple Insider, the answer is “yes”. Apple, apparently energized by the success of the iPhone and iPod Touch, is thought to firmly pursue plans to release a full scale tablet device. Leveraging the multi-touch interface made popular by the iPhone, the company is certainly capable of releasing a revolutionary take on the tablet-PC form factor. But will it ever see the light of day? Rumors of an Apple Newton renaissance have been swirling for years, so we’re inclined to throw this in the rumor bin for now. That said, if Apple did decide to enter the Ultra Mobile PC market, we wouldn’t be the least bit upset. Integrated HSPDA, multi-touch interface, OS X….we’re drooling already. This product is apparently on track for a 2008 release, but we wouldn’t hold our breath…just yet, at least.
