Did you hear? Apple has a new product!!

In case you've been living under a rock for the past two years, there have been many rumors circulating about an impending Apple Tablet. Or iSlate. Or iPhone on Steroids (the iBonds?). Well it now looks like it will be official. From the AllThingsD Blog is the "official" announcement of the Apple event we all have been waiting for.

They even titled it "Come See Our Latest Creation". Hmmm. Will it be about time that we are allowed to see Apple's latest "must have" product? But what will it have? How much will it cost? Why are people trying to predict that it will have everything but the kitchen sink?

Listen, remember the first iPhone launch? Everything that they put into that was so new and exciting. The keyboard, while still QUERTY based, was still new and people hated it. Millions of phones sold later and everyone can do it. Applications was a new concept. And the list can go on.. The same will happen with the iSlate (a name I really like). New ways of interacting with the screen outside of the iPhone type of interface. New/multiple input methods.

But mostly its what else it can do. I'm sure there will be many bells and whistles that we never thought of. Or there will be ones that we know of but they do it in such a way that every Apple fanboy/girl will fawn over.

I like the speculation and rumors. But I also know the showmanship of Apple (and hopefully Steve Jobs). They know what the blogosphere is talking about. They are tracking your Tweets. They will still show you something new and...blow your mind!

Wednesday, January 27th. We'll all know. (Via webcast but I didn't get invited..)

    Incidentally, I think iPad (which was mentioned yesterday) sounds like an Apple-sponsored feminine product.
