Yes, the rumor is gaining real momentum - the fact that Apple will release official information on its new iSlate or whatever final name it will be. It is a modern day version of the Newton and a bigger version of the iPhone. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/04/arts/04iht-design4.html
So this being said, would you buy this iSlate (?) just to be more connected? I think I would.
