Rumor: Apple working on 12" iPad with partner manufacturer Quanta - Page 3

It would be the size of the 12" G4 Powerbook display:



That design actually looks a lot like the modern iPad. With a resolution of 2048x1536, they can split the display down the middle to run two apps at 1024x768 at once e.g calculator + Numbers or Twitter + Facebook or a browser + Pages. It would have to share one on-screen keyboard between them but you'd tap an input first anyway. When you turn it round, the two apps would rotate to the opposite view. It would need gestures to enable/disable the center split.

You're right, I just meant that for a consumer product, having the iMac be able to leave the stand would be the natural evolution of it. It would be great for students and designers.

What? No. It’s a desktop. The iMac has already left the stand. It’s called the iPad.

 

The iMac will also, as was suggested, return its components to the stand, because the darn thing is going to morph into a multitouch machine with an adjustable screen. Putting the hardware back in the stand makes the screen adjustment that much lighter and easier to do.

 

Roughly the end of the decade: multitouch desktop computer line (not Macintosh; that’s keyboard and mouse), iPad from 8-15”.

Wanted to post a one-liner like 'wouldn't that make the screen too low for comfy-viewing?' but looks like I already got pipped by TS with a better reply.
