Rumor Mill: Apple Tablet

As with all rumors, take the following with a grain of salt: It appears that Apple is preparing to release a Tablet.  Normally we hear so many Apple rumors, especially about Tablets, PDAs and sub-notebooks, but this particular rumor allegedly comes directly from one of Apple's key manufacturing partners: ASUS.

Assuming that the rumor is true, that does leave us with a big question:

“...can Apple turn the Tablet PC into a success when previous attempts have failed? The short answer is 'yes'. Any company that can make a mobile phone with no buttons, no picture messaging, slow Web access and no video capture into the most desirable phone on the planet can easily make tablets popular.”

We're certainly interested in seeing what Apple comes up with, but we've learned the hard way that believing every Apple rumor you hear is a recipe for disappointment.
