I, Cringely » Blog Archive » Apple Tablet Twit! - Cringely on technology

Perhaps the most significant milestone of all: Apple was not able to keep the details secret until the official unveiling. No doubt Apple’s lawyers will be busy for the next few months… In the meantime, check the full post for a photo and a couple more details (and also check the post comments; some people believe Cringely was hacked and/or hoaxed)

From a beta tester:

Apple tablet is OLED + back has solar pad for recharging, but (the charger) really doesn’t work quickly. More a gimmick. Verizon+att, wifi yes!

Apple Tablet has thumbpads on each side for mouse gestures, reads fingerprint for security. Up to 5 profiles by fingerprint for family.

Yes, there are 2cameras: one in front and one in back (or it may be one with some double lens) so you record yourself and in front of you.

I can tell u the battery life is great in ebook reading mode but not great when on wifi or playing games. 2-3hrs.

Yes, the apple tablet is running an iphone os flavor with ability to have multiple apps running at same time (ie pandora, browser).

The price will be $599, $699 and $799 depending on size and memory in apple tablet. Also, wireless keyboard + monitor connection for TV.

Wow -- *way* off; surprising for Cringely. Perhaps his site was hacked...
