The rumors surrounding Apple’s mythical tablet continue to roll in, with the latest word being that Apple has informed select developers to prepare apps for a public tablet demo set to take place in January, which corroborates earlier reports suggesting that Apple has plans to announce the device at a special media event sometime in January, 2010.
Citing a connected source in the “mobile industry”, Silicon Alley Insider writes that Apple is “preparing to show off a new, larger mobile device with a higher resolution display in January.”
The device won’t go on sale in January, according to this source — just the demo. This is presumably so Apple can give other app makers time to prepare their apps for larger-screen devices, a project that will range in complexity depending on the app.
We’re just hoping that we don’t see a demo of Super Monkey Ball this January. Seriously.
