The Tablet Event
The new products we are planning to release this year are very strong, starting this week with a major new product that we’re really excited about,
said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO.
Today’s the day for Apple fanboys. Apple is going to hold a special event – ‘Come see our latest creations’ on Jan. 27 at 10.00 AM (PST) at Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco. As mentioned in the press release of the first quarter financial result, there will be a major new product announced this week. This should be something really excited and very likely, it’s the long-rumored tablet device – iPad / iSlate / iTablet, and we should be prepared for the disappointment as well.
