As most everyone knows Apple is set to make a big announcement next Wednesday, January 27th at 10:00 AM in the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco. Presumably, the event is going to be held for Apple to unveil a new tablet device yet to be determined by speculators.
Mashable has reported through a source (Northeast Securities analyst Ashok Kumar), that the new device will sport a Qualcomm processor and will be available through Apple at full price, which should be around $800 and Verizon at a subsidized price with a service plan.
According to Engadget not only a tablet could be big news, but a new iLife and iPhone OS 4 could make quite a splash. It would seem logical to show off some new tools and kick out a new iPhone OS.
According to Gizmodo an Apple insider claims the above Flickr image to be the closest rendering to the real thing to date.
Could we also see the presence of a Qualcomm powered iPhone slated for Verizon? We’ll find out next week and all the madness will be over.
