New Year is on the door and Yesterday I tweeted on “Google’s much-anticipated new phone, the HTC-designed Nexus One, could make its debut 2nd week of Jan.” for all Apple fans here is a good news for you, I know much of you wouldn’t even be aware of it, yes its the iSlate a.k.a Apple Tablet PC is all set of release by the coming months this 2010. I am just providing a exclusive sneek peek on the feature and rumors that are going in the tech industry on this in this week blog. First take a look at how the Apple iSlate looks like, I think it’s more of an IPhone but the difference should be you cannot put it in to your pocket 🙂 (think as a King size iPhone)

It is reportedly rumoured that Apple is holding a media event in San Francisco on January 26 at the Yerba Buena Arts Center, the same place where Apple chief executive Steve Jobs showed off new iPods , where the company is expected to make a major product announcement.

I have heard that the Apple tablet will offer a 9.7-inch screen and sell for $800, or maybe a 6-inch screen, and will sell for under $700 and also heard it will feature a 10.1-inch screen and retail for a cool $1000. As if that’s not enough, there’s a 7-inch model (price unspecified) in addition to the 10-inch tablet. The tablet will either run OS X or something like the iPhone OS. It will play HD video, read e-books, and save the newspaper industry. With all due respect, I’d expect any other tablet to do the same. Though this is a complete touch screen tablet, a tablet with a multi-touch feature: It may sound new to the tablet industry, but for the users? Of course this is expected. It wouldn’t be the image and likeness of the iPhone without a multitouch feat, wouldn’t it? Looks like the US Design Patent No. D504,899 is one for the Apple history books to add this up, also Apple had acquired iSlate.com, other pieces to the puzzle seemed to fall into place soon or later.

We are all not sure how Microsoft is going to feel about this, but perhaps the heated competition will spur sales of PC tablet devices from their current, sluggish pace. At least one thing’s for sure: once this device comes out, tablet devices are officially in. Here is video on how the navigation on the new Apple tablet will look like and also check out http://www.islate.org if you need more videos collections and patents on this:
