I’m cautiously optimistic about the Apple Tablet.
I like to think that Steve wouldn’t let a less than awesome device out the door, but then I think of the Apple TV and cringe.
But my prediction has less to do with hardware than media.
As in Main Stream Media.
As in The New York Times.
There were rumors recently that the NYT was going behind a pay wall. I don’t think it’s coincidence given the tablet announcement and rumors about publishing deals with Apple and various big names in the industry. The NYT would want to go behind a pay wall to steer people to an electronic subscription on a tablet device.
The tablet might be what saves the newspapers. Or not.
We’ll see tomorrow.
