Get Ready for Bigger Mac Tablets from Apple Too
Even though the team in Cupertino has yet to confirm the existence of a true Mac Tablet, we’re reasonably certain that Apple will have a large touchscreen handheld for us some time in the near future. The assumption up until this point is that it’d be a 10-inch device to slot between the iPod touch and the regular MacBook. “Reliable sources” are now saying there’s more to this picture.

In addition to the 10-inch model that has everyone all excited, there’s word going around that Apple will also be releasing 13-inch and 15-inch variants for the so-called iPad. Or Mac Tablet. Or MacBook Touch. Whatever you want to call it.

The insider source is saying that there are two prototypes for these larger Mac Tablets kicking around in the factory in Shenzuen, China. These prototypes are said to be “reminiscent of big aluminum iPhones.”

To make matters even more interesting is the story on the operating system. We had assumed that the 10-inch tablet would be running some beefed-up variant of what you find on the iPod touch and iPhone, since the lighter OS would help with overall performance. Well, the source is saying that at least one of these bigger iPads is doing the OS X dance.

    Since the original Apple tablet was dubbed "Newton," what about calling the new one–being more media-oriented–the "Leonardo" or the "DaVinci"?

  2. Will be interesting to see the names. If there are 2-3 devices they may have both.
    An iPad for the smaller and Macbook Touch for the larger. Or just iPad 10 and iPad 15.

    From all the names I have seen don't like tablet, itablet or macbook xxx, I think of the ones that I owned that were bulky.

    The whole idea behind the product needs to be new like the concept of a iPad (new device), that is different. It can be too if it works like an iPhone but with more features and power like a macbook. If it was bulky and ran like a PC you would just have another tablet like the new upcoming Archos 9 tablet. That looks like more of the same.

    Hope Stevey Jobs makes a killer iPad and releases it by Christmas, otherwise my device buying will freeze until I see something worthy.

      how about skipping the whole "i" infatuation and trying something new, not ikea font new, but new? maybe Malus domestica? or hows Fameuse, or even Spartan and yes maybe Macon? I doubt that will be the case though, since its best to stick with what woks, so how about i CTRL-ALTERNATE-DEL?
