Full Video iPod in 2007 and Mac Tablet in 2008?

MacScoop cites reliable sources that indicate that Apple will be deploying its mini OS X to at least two more devices using the same technologies found in the iPhone.

The first is the full screen video iPod which has been long rumored. The final iPod design is expected to feature a similar display to the iPhone (which some have noted is not true widescreen ratio) and also include 80GB and 100GB capacities. The video iPod is reportedly ready and due to ship before the iPhone's June release.

The second device is another veteran of the Mac rumor scene - a Mac tablet.

The rumor site expects the forthcoming tablet to utilize the same multi-touch technology, a more advanced version of "mini" OS X, and Wifi connectivity. The target market for the Tablet Mac is for research and education markets,

In November Smarthouse.com.au claimed Apple was working on a tablet Mac with docking station, but no further evidence of this has been available.

It certainly does seem that this mobile version of Mac OS X has a future beyond the iPhone. Early Appleinsider rumors of Apple's mini OS X project described it as the centerpiece for future Apple embedded devices, including a "jaw-dropping" device not due to hit the market until 2008.
