Apple ‘tablet’ rumoured to be available in time for Christmas
Apple is rumoured to be developing a ‘tablet’ computer – a handheld gadget that will allow users ultra-portable laptop capability.
Speculation about the device has been rife on the internet, but the secretive company has refused to disclose any details.
Although chief operating officer, Tim Cook, hinted that the company is working on something, but would not disclose any further details.
The new offering from Apple would be similar to a laptop, but a touch-screen device with no keyboard. It would allow users to surf the web, read newspapers and watch films.
The product is believed to have been in development for the last six years with Steve Jobs personally involved.
