    I rekon its a tablet, with an amazing OS, most likely where everything is dragable (its the way of the future!).

    Pretty sure i'll be selling my gen 1 macbook straight away when/IF its confirmed and picking one up.

    EDIT: Would be funny if its just iphones with different colour skins (the paint splatter reference)! :lol:

    I reckon a tablet with an app that you can use to "paint" with on screen with your fingers judging by that splodgy graphic.

    I was just about to Google it too, but remember it had to do with something that wouldn't go down well in a work environment.

    Will check when I get home instead :lol:

    The following is my prediction for this event:

    Most likely in this order
    • iPhone OS 4.0 dicussion and release info (shipping 6 weeks)
    • New iPhone '4G' hardware announcement (shipping 6 weeks)
    • Announces 7 & 10" Tablet device (Shipping in June)
    • New version of Mobile iWork & iLife that are touch enabled for the new tablet.

    Tablet will be have 3G hardware built in and will be sold either subsided by the telco or available outright.

    Ability to tether to iPhone.

    WONT be called iTablet...will be "iPod something".

    Possibl

    Sounds good to me. I think a 7-10" tablet would be great, give it bluetooth support and link it up to a keyboard/mouse and voila - an extremely portable device that is useful while sitting at your desk or out and about.

    Hell, giving it bluetooth support means you can do any number of things - I'd love a cheap bluetooth barcode scanner and a tablet so I could inventorise all of the IT equipment I work with quickly.

    Nothing wrong with bukakke....

    I predict that tablet will have a 10" - 12" screen.

    Only one screen size.

    No 3G. WiFi only.

    Tether with iPhone.
