So that Apple event that Fox confirmed for January 26 is actually going to be held on the 27th, says All Things D. It will be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, but little else has been revealed. It’s probably the tablet.
Update: The WSJ is reporting that Apple will announce the tablet later this month, but it won’t ship until March. What’s most interesting is the following blurb about finish and various models.
While the device’s ship date hasn’t been finalized and could still change, people briefed on the matter said the new product will come with a 10 to 11-inch touch screen—which would make it closer in size to Apple’s line of MacBook laptops than its smart phone.
Apple was working on two different material finishes for the device, one of these people said, though it was unclear whether the Cupertino, Calif., company was just testing the finishes or planning to come out with multiple versions of a tablet at different prices.
