Apple tablet to the Rescue

Just as we thought the behemoth Google would trounce the tiny Apple David, we see that all hope is not lost!

It seems that apple will always be here to give us something new and culture shifting. All we have to do is pay the right price…

Actually, the Apple Tablet looks to be just that; a culture shifter. Tablets have not generally been heralded with much fanfare or even a notice, but this one will be VERY DIFFERENT and already is different.

With so many iPhone users out there and a simple interface that is much like the iPhone’s, it makes sense that this tablet might be more than a computer, game system, communications device, multimedia platform, but even the salvation of print journalism… well, not really print, but at least the print houses…

Read more below on just what it does. I think you will be just as amazed as I. And I think you will likely yawn a bit as Google continues its push into the mega cellular market…

* A multimedia device that will let people watch movies and television shows, play games, surf the Internet and read electronic books and newspapers.

You can read the Journal report here. A video Yukari Kane adding color to her Journal story is available here. The Jan. 27 unveiling date comes from John Paczkowski in Digital Daily, another News Corp. (NWS) property. TechCrunch’s MG Siegler tries to divine the tablet’s actual price from some curious changes that were made in the Journal’s story between its posting on the Web and its publication in the paper.
