Apple It's the most hyped device of the moment, a device that nobody has laid eyes on without an NDA death-grip. While rumour and speculation escalate (sometimes giving way to apathy), little has leaked out of Cupertino. But nobody seems to be asking whether this tablet thing will be successful or not.

While I think a netbook or tablet is a good guess, it could be something else entirely that Apple will announce. It could be entirely unrelated to hardware and "just" be an extension to iTunes and/or Apple Store to carry other types of product than they currently do.

Or Apple could announce that they switch to ARM for MacBook and iMacs, so instead of making a product to fill the gap between the iPhone/iPod and the MacBook/iMac, they just change to a more uniform hardware/software platform over the whole range without actually introducing new form factors. I'm pretty sure Apple will eventually do this, so it is mainly a question of when. Next week seems a little soon, though (my best guess is 2012).
