The Apple Tablet: an all-in-one multimedia device with a touch pad you use like an iPhone and a screen the size of a laptop. If it were to exist, someday, it might have a movie player, an e-reader, a properly sized web browser... But right now, it's an entirely imaginary device. Apple is, as usual, staying silent ahead of their next public event on September 9th.
With iPhone sales at 5.4 million units in the last quarter alone, there's no wonder expectations are high for Steve Jobs to build this. To find out why the tablet has techies so revved up, we speak to Sam Grobart, personal technology editor for The New York Times, and Queena Kim, who produces a podcast called CyberFrequencies at KPCC Public Radio in Los Angeles.
