RUMOR: iSlate is an eBook reader by Apple, not a Tablet
Posted on December 30, 2009 by eli courey
Here’s an interesting rumor I thought was worth mentioning, mostly for it’s creativity. I think it would be really cool if Apple did come out with an eBook reader, but I don’t think there’s really much evidence yet that supports this rumor.
Many rumors of Apple launching an Apple tablet, which is believed to be a large tablet version of the iPhone/iPod touch have been spreading around. The latest rumor suggests that it will be called an iSlate. Our sources have told us that the rumor about Apple launching a product with the iSlate name is true, but the product won’t be an Apple tablet, it will be an eBook reader. The iSlate will be a competitor to the Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble Nook and other e-readers that are out there. Our sources have also told us that the iSlate eBook reader will run on Apple’s upcoming iPhone OS 4.0 software and will include a seperate App Store for eBooks. Apple will be announcing the iSlate eBook reader at WWDC 2010, which our sources says is being held on June 7.
