Apple Reserves Event Space For January--Tablet Incoming?

Apple just can't catch a break. In the rumor department, not the sales/performance department. Even with the holidays upon us, the rumors are flaming up higher than ever, with the latest asserting that the company will be hosting a product event next month. Eagle-eyed folks have noticed that Apple has reserved space in late January at a venue in San Francisco that it has typically used to unveil new gear.

The stage at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts is all Apple's on Tuesday, January 26th, and unless it enjoys paying for space that it has no intention of using, you can pretty much bank on something being unveiled. It makes sense when you think about it. Apple isn't going to be doing a keynote speech at Macworld this year, and it definitely won't be introducing something new at CES (at least, we doubt it).

So, let's say Apple does unveil something. What could it be? At this point, we'd be shocked if it's not some sort of tablet computer. The JooJoo has been announced, and even OLPC has revealed that it has a tablet on its mind. In other words, every major company is thinking about a tablet, and at this point, we'd say it's on Apple's radar as well. Where there's smoke, there's fire--right?
