Rumors have launched the Apple “iTablet” several times already, but it never showed. Now Digitimes reveals that Apple delayed the tablet till late 2010 as they want to swap some of the components and launch a model with 9.7″ OLED screen from LG instead.
OLED screens are still very expensive but prices are expected to drop during next year. Sources estimate Apple’s cost on the tablet will be less than $1500 next year, but if it was to be released today, it would cost $1700 to make. They also expect the price for the tablet to land around $2000.
Sources of Digitimes mentions several version of the tablet will be launched, including one with 10.6″ regular LCD touch screen.
If the price is really going to end up at $2000, then it would have to be an amazing device for me to even consider getting one. And even then, I don’t think I would. I have one laptop and an iPhone and I do just great with that, I see no need for me where a tablet would be better, price taken into consideration.
Would you get one, if it was $2000? If not, what price would it have to be, for you to get one? Leave a comment below!
