Apple to Offer $899 Tablet With OLED Screen?
The rumors of the much-anticipated, yet-to-be-confirmed Apple (AAPL) tablet continued to pile up.
The latest version comes from that old rumormonger, Trip Chowdhry, proprietor of the boutique research firm Global Equities Research. Once a month or so, Chowdhry publishes Silicon Scorp, a roundup of chatter he’s hearing around the Valley. And one of things he’s been hearing lately is that Apple by the end of the year will announce an $899 “SmartBook,” with 8-10 inch OLED screens from LG Electronics, and an ARM Holding dual core Corex9 chipset. He writes that his contacts are “almost positive” that such a device is coming, that Apple wants to launch this year, but that widespread availability isn’t likely until Q1 2010.
