Doubt it....they like to give us a big show and say "shipping today" or "shipping next week."
I personally don't think it is a big deal they are lacking performance specs and pricing.....the big deal is they are lacking an actual product and will be for the most part until around the iPad3, then, like the iPhone, it will be too late.
Nice job totally ignoring the context of the thread to make irrelevant comments. When Apple announces, they will announce all the specs fit top print and when you can order and expect shipping. Pre-production, line-test models that will be exactly the same as shipping models will be available to touch and exercise.
Almost the entirety of CES tablet based announcements came without hard shipping deadlines, specs, or running pre-production hardware to touch. Prototypes don't count, they don't come off a production line gearing up for shipping like pre-production hardware does. Even worse then prototypes are the non-functional demo's which only run canned videos. Those are completely isolated from what the hardware/software will actually do come ship time. So yes, there is more than a little vapor there.
