OK, we've all read rumours about what's going to be in the iSlate and what isn't. So, just in case someone like Steve Jobs is listening, here's my wish list of stuff I [B]haven't[/B] seen reported but would like. 1. An FM radio. I want the iSlate to reduce the amount of gadgets I need or keep them constant, not multiply them. 2. A stand of some sort. Like you get on a digital picture frame.

I suppose it had to happen. [URL="http://www.apple.com"]Apple[/URL] was rumoured to be launching a 'slate' computer so others including [URL="http://www.hp.com"]HP[/URL] have done so too.

If Apple doesn't release the iSlate at a conference on 26 January then it's going to cause some of the biggest disappointments in the history of the IT industry. Latest strong tip that it's happening comes from an [URL="http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-10423353-37.html?tag=newsEditorsPicksArea.0"]ex-Apple insider[/URL], albeit one from a while back.
