New Apple Tablet?

Interesting rumors surfaced this week at AppleInsider about a new Apple Tablet or PDA some are dubbing a return of the Newton. For those who missed it, the Newton was Apple's much maligned too-early entry into the handheld market and quickly eclipsed by the simpler and lighter Palm Pilot. The newest device is allegedly larger than an iPhone, has a 720x480 display and runs an embedded version of the Mac OS/X Leop

Interesting rumors surfaced this week at AppleInsider about a new Apple Tablet or PDA some are dubbing a return of the Newton. For those who missed it, the Newton was Apple's much maligned too-early entry into the handheld market and quickly eclipsed by the simpler and lighter Palm Pilot.

The newest device is allegedly larger than an iPhone, has a 720x480 display and runs an embedded version of the Mac OS/X Leopard operating system.

Who knows if this rumor will pan out, but there's been some ongoing murmurs in this area for over a year now. And while the iPod Touch is pretty cool, I would love if they came out with something just a bit larger. Ok, and please, please, please add a flipdown clamshell keyboard. Pretty please. Otherwise, I'm not sure why this device would go beyond the Nokia N800.
