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.

It's going to happen. It's just not in Apple's interest to see rumours reach this level only to disappoint everyone and damage their share price.

Uh, but there is reality to consider. They can’t just magic a product up because that’s what people _expect_. I expect hover cars for everybody, but every year I’m disappointed. Every keynote there have been predictions that pundits have called a dead-cert, that turned out to be false. It’s not that I don’t think the tablet is likely, I just think it’s silly us producing an eco-system of news powered by a rumour mill.

Steve says it best—new product, available today.

Nice use of sarcasm, but they would have denied the rumours by now, not thrown together a product out of embarrassment. That's what they did with the previous tablet rumours...
