There has been rumor upon rumor for seemingly years now about a tablet and/or touchscreen-like device coming from Apple, other than an iPod or iPhone.  The source that broke the story says they have had their hands on the Apple prototype and that Apple is now in talks with manufacturers to bring it to fruition.  Michael Arrington of TechCrunch, claims 3 sources have let him in that Apple is planning to release such a device for late 2009.  


Many have suspected Apple had a tablet, similar to a larger iPhone in the works for some time and have continuously asked for such a device. We would assume the touch device would be quite expensive, but that is the price you pay for bleeding-edge technology.  No matter what the cost, we would love to see such a device and maybe, just maybe, MacWorld will be the place for its release… although we doubt it.
