Asus Confirms Existence of Apple Tablet

Execs let slip...

I know, I know, I know…

It’s Apple ”overload” – though we will soon have a new ‘Apple’ section (along with ‘Home Cinema’) ”’so take note”’ – but Crave has just broken some very interesting news indeed.

More than two years after Apple filed patents for a Tablet Mac it claims to have spoken with senior Asus execs who told them in hushed voices that “Asus is helping Apple build a Tablet PC”. Now forgiving a previously well hidden Taiwanese mischievous side, this would make sense since – as is correctly pointed out – Asus is Apple’s contact manufacturer.

Furthermore, Crave’s Asus source says the Tablet will be (frankly, bl00dy obviously) a completely new blueprint and feature much of the multi-touch tech and finger friendly interface used on the iPhone. As for dates and prices… you’ve got to be joking, right?

Funnily enough, this story breaks just as conceptual artist ‘Factory Jo’ sent the IT world into rapture over his take on a possible Apple Tablet (pics above and below) and based on what Crave is saying he may not be that far out… ”hopefully”.

Could the Tablet formula finally take-off? Don’t bet against it…
