There has been too many speculations on Apple Tablet PC. This is my take on that.

Apple has a reputation of emerging from the average by using mature technologies which is available otherwise to everyone and differentiate in the user experience.

For example
1. IPod had no new features than an MP3 player cannot have but it was cool and it was a phenomenon

2. IPhone, any new feature ? well touch screen was there but not utilized in that way ever, apart from that everything else was there

Now comes the Tablet

Microsoft has a Tablet for almost 5 years now, they have got everything but success.

Amazon Kindle eReader is a reading device which does not utilize the technology to the full but earns by limiting them, you don't have USB port to transfer to and from your device.

Now, what will apple tablet have that will differentiate them from these two giants.

They will utilize the Tablet multi touch screen interface

Second, a major functionality missing from Kindle is eWriter which everyone is ignoring, Microsoft Tablet has got that in a medicore way, thats where Apple will excel first. An eWriter with excellent touch, draw and write capability, if you think of it these functionality are already mature and available in any tablet.

Third eReader, where Kindle retricts and limits user by going against technology, Apple will utilize technology to the full, Wifi, usb, blue tooth, a device completely independent of the service, but can be used to download ebooks from an Apple service

Thats how Apple will do, beating Microsoft tablet and Amazon Kindle
by producing a great touch screen eWriter and a boundless eReader.

Lets see.
