Exclusive: Apple to host event in January
Apple has something big up its sleeve for next month.
Speculation that Apple is preparing to introduce a new tablet style computer has been building all year, and other reports now suggest the tablet will make its debut in January.
It is still unclear exactly what an Apple tablet would include, but most observers expect a sort of large-scale iPhone that has additional features for viewing video and reading books and magazines.
Yesterday we reported that Apple is working to solidify a new round of content deals with TV studios.
Meanwhile, publishers have been working on new versions of digital magazines that would be viewed on touch screen computers.
Apple has explored making tablet style devices for years, only to back off. The company also has a history of scrapping products very close to their scheduled launch dates.
