The tablet rumours thicken...
Or rather: There's new evidence that Apple is or was at least planning
one. The link above shows some pictures from the patent application, showing that Apple wouldn't just do yet another tablet PC, albeit with an OS X interface. Rather, the tablet would have a gesture-driven input interface on top of just point and click as you would with a stylus. Very interesting: The lower right of the screen could show the iPod's interface. So would this tablet be a small Mac or a big media player? Of course if it's the former, it sure as hell is the latter as well. ;)
On the other hand, patents about a tablet have popped up on the 'net for years now with no Apple product to show for. So the question is: Was this project canned at some point – or has it just not seen the light of day yet?
