I've searched around and noone seems to have mentioned these 2 videos:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZZG5ytY-Rs

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8z4UVgI7Qs

They are more than likely fakes, but are certainly impressive enough to deserve a mention.

Which is to say, I'd totally buy that :P

I mentioned that a while back too. I really didn't give it much thought to the implementation though. I don't know much about the technology required but it would seem to me that the module part would have to have an antenna hanging off of it like my notebook 3G card because an internal antenna would have to be specifically designed for one wireless platform or the other. That antenna sticking out would be very contrary to the expected clean lines and elegant style of the rumored device.

surprise surprise surprise translation, no free web browsing of tv shows. That right there kills it for me and quote a few others I know. Why pay anything when the networks have all the shows online, most of the time. In fact. ABC sold season 5 of Lost this December now you watch all seasons 1-5 FREE online. If this device is tied to iTunes, it's not going to sell well, no wonder the networks said no, they have their own adverts online.

The only way this will fly different is if yo can watch content on the device via the browser and don't try and tell me of the iPhones success. A lot of people are pretty ticked of that in places like china they can watch TV on their phones and we can't even stream tomorrows Evette live and by the sound of it, it appears there will be no flash which is used by most steaming entertainment not youboob.

I hope Apple proves us wrong.

It's called Judaism and any one of those four aren't so far fetched. All of them together, however, maybe not so likely.

I don't understand how television shows is a deal breaker for you or anybody else. To want to watch shows on a 10in screen will be a tiresome chore. The cost of the tablet will easily get you a 37 - 50 HDTV with a HD antenna that will make watching television shows much more enjoyable.

it's impractical. People want to watch what they want to watch when they want to watch it.

he doesn't see the point in storing an episode you'll watch once. but instead of just deleting it himself, he'd rather no one have that option and have Apple delete it for him.

Try telling that to Apple. Video downloads, whether tv or movie, are significant part of iTunes.

I had the iphone,then dropped it and went back to verizon. I miss the iphone,but am satisfied with the droid eris for now until verizon gets the iphone. The only thing i have to question about the rumors of verizon getting the iphone sometime this year is why would Verizon dump so much time and money(also bashing iphone&at&t) into droid then just do a 180 and start pushing the iphone.Most verizon customers will line up for the iphone and ditch there droids. They will be just tossing droid to the side. The average consumer is familiar with the iphone,its simple and proven a success.The droid is a good phone,but its still not simplified like the iphone.

I hope i'm dead wrong and apple announces on the 27th the iphone is coming to verizon , but something is telling me that Verizon won't be offering the iphone until 2011,2012

This is what I mean by free tv online. Sure you can bittorent a show but watching it free online means a few :30 & :15 second ads. Much better then the 17 minutes of ads if you watched it the date it airs. Still, unlike the iPhone, I really hope we are not locked into iTunes only. Not sure about everyone else here but this on suppposedly image had like 75 iPhone icons. Very busy and cluttered. But you're correct in that ad agencies would a lot of money.

Give us osx lite not a giant iPod.

Right or wrong, that is why apple wants to sell you the apple tv. It is the apple tv, not the tablet, that depends on the quality and quantity of the content (shows and movies) available to it.

The app store is where the tablet will reside and flourish.

Mobile OS is OS X Lite. I'm going to guess that on Apple's campus there is more than a few variations of OS X. You see windows limits there desktop systems to charge you more for, well, more. Apple takes the ONE system they have, OS X, and tailor it to the device it's going to run on. There is a file-system on the iPhone, just no finder. There's a reason Apple wants all code to be done in Cocoa ON THE MAC. The touch interface is built on Cocoa. The more that OS X is Cocoa, the more features can be ported over. But, touch UI requires a different way of manipulation, so of coarse it's going to LOOK different. Under the hood it's just a Lexus with a V6 instead of a V8.

I sincerely hope that you realize the absolute idiocy (and off-topic nature) of your childish comment(s), as the justification of a line of text has no bearing whatsoever on anything related to the space it occupies.

I get the benefits of no commercials and the price is nice.

Stupid execs pass up the opportunity to earn a few bucks...instead they'll get zero from most people like me.

Well if you can torrent and rapid share then you can stream video with any codec. Lock it down to iTunes and no OS for torrent would mean no streaming except iTunes and then I see this as the next Apple TV. A hobby.

I hope not.

If you want TV on your phone, go to WalMart pick out a free phone from Verizon, etc, and pay the $10 a month fee, it is really that simple, and a lot of people do that. You don't need an iPhone or even Windows Mobile based phone. You can subscribe to either Live TV or even TV on demand content, and it works "reasonably" well even in non 3G areas, and is quite nice in 3G areas.

For some reason these keep getting posted, each time with assurances that we hadn't seen them before. Maybe we need a sticky.

I'm not here to argue, so someone who's posting style is basically a billboard for "dislike me" is easily something I can pass over without ever knowing what he/she said.

That's just the way it's going to be.

The burden of proof is on you my friend. Who ever said anything regarding your name and a report?

I like semantics. As I never called anybody names, I have only questioned them or compared them to a likeness.

No. multi-tasking will be accomplished on the next iPhone, multitasking for iPhone apps that is. iPhone apps on a tablet do not make any sense. You can't merely put iPhone app on the tablet, the UI will be a different thing, completely.

[CENTER]I understand your position, but I'm more inclined to believe that the iPad will be compatible with the vast majority of existing Apple Mobile OS/iPhone/Touch apps, as it affords current iPhone/Touch users a degree of familiarity with the device almost immediately.

Some aspects will be 'all new', like the reader portion, but much of it will probably be a slight variation on what Apple has already built.

We'll See...[/CENTER]
