If you believe all the hype, the Apple Tablet is on its way in just a few hours at the Apple event in CA.
I am excited about it. You can click through to follow a live blog on it, or read below to see some of the amazing features awaiting.
They even have recharging abilities!!!!! COOL!
In a series of dispatches on Twitter, the founder of Mahalo and co-founder of Weblogs talks in some detail about a beta version of the tablet he claims to have had in hand — after signing one of Apple’s (AAPL) famous non disclosure agreement (nda) — for a week and a half.
Putting together his brief notes, here’s what he has to say:
Ok, I will take two questions about the new apple tablet which I have right here. Go ahead… My nda is basically over.
Yes, there are 2cameras: one in front and one in back (or it may be one with some double lens) so you record yourself and in front of u.
Apple Tablet has thumbpads on each side for mouse guestures, reads fingerprint for security. Up to 5 profiles by finerprint for family.
Yes, apple tablet is oled + back has solar pad for recharging, but it really doesn’t work quickly. More a gimmic. Verizon+att,wifi yes!
Apple tablet’s 2 cameras is sick feature for video conferencing: u shoot what’s in front of you + yourself. Augmented video conferncing!
Ok, I’m going to bed (with apple tablet after reading nytimes+Vanity Fair on it!), steve jobs outdid himself, its greatest device ever!!!
Apple tablet games are sick. Basically nintendo wii-level innovation. Custom farmville app is insane. Mark pincus is demoing with steve tmmr
For background: apple asked me to do press tomorrow on cnbc, cnn, etc. As a pundit they gave me tablet 10 days ago. 3people dropped it off!
apple tablet connects to other tablets over wifi for gaming. There will be LAN parties with these things, people playingFirst personshooters
The price will be 599, 699 and 799 depending on size and memory in apple tablet. Also, wireless keyboard + monitor connection for tv
Also, the apple tablet is really amazing for newspapers. Video conferencing is super stable, but nothing new.
The best part ofthe apple tablet as beta user has been the built in HDTV tuner and pvr, and the chess game.
also, Farmville for Apple tablet is a huge game changer. I know for a FACT Mark Pincus is onstage tomorrow with Jobs.
Off to bed, but I assure you I’m not joking and the specs are real….
Most of all that this is best gadget ever made and NOT overhyped. …
