Take One Tablet...
OK, keep in mind that most Apple rumors on the internet aren't worth the paper they're printed on. Also keep in mind that Jobs said not that long ago that Apple had developed a PDA but had decided not to sell it (though this isn't strictly a PDA). Of course, you can also keep in mind the fact that Apple not that long ago dug up the handwriting recognition software from the Newton (still the best ever developed) and adapted it to work with OS X as Inkwell. With those caveats firmly in mind, I thought this is kind of interesting: Apple has filed for a European design trademark which may provide a tantalising glimpse of the company's long-awaited tablet computer. ... The filing ... covers a "handheld computer" and contains sketches of what look like an iBook screen minus the body of the computer. The drawing, of course, could be of anything--it could just as easily be a wireless monitor, which has been rumored before. And, even if the filing does in fact say it's a handheld computer, it could be paperwork filed in connection with the developed-but-killed PDA. In the meantime, it's an interesting Apple rumor. One of very, very many.
