Apple Tablet to Offer Webcam Option, Serve as Touchscreen Input Device for Macs?
"The device, which I've held mock ups of, is going to have a 10 inch screen, and when I saw it looked just like a giant iPhone, with a black back -- although that design could change at any time" they said, "with the same black resin back, and the familiar home button."Additional information includes the existence of two models, one including a webcam and one designed for "educational use" presumably lacking a webcam of any sort. The device will also reportedly cost $700-$900 and may have the ability to serve as a secondary display and touchscreen input device for existing Macs.
To make up for that cost and make the device more than just a big iPod there was, this person claimed, there was talk of making the device act as a secondary screen/touchpad for iMacs and MacBooks, much like a few of the USB screens that have come out in recent months from Chinese companies. Very interesting.
