The Apple Tablet: Secret snapshots and product history

In the wee hours of this morning the interwebs are all a chatter about the Apple Press Conference that is going to start in a matter of hours and the (hopefully) debut of the Apple Tablet (name TBA).  The people over at Engadget.com have a post of what they believe may be the ├╝ber-device, packed in what appears to be a display case (for after the announcement, for the press and general public to oooh and ahhhh over).




Along with the non-confirmed product image blog post, Laura June has a blog entry with the (almost) complete history of the products conception and purposed debut.  It is a interesting read full of images of patents as well as artist renderings.

The anticipation is palpable and Apple has a recent track record of delivering quality products for the general consumer that are be-seen-with devices (iPod) as well as intuitively accessible iconic status symbols (iPhone).

Will Apple get it right with the new device?  Will the device be all that we hope it to be?  Will it sell between one and five million in the first year?  I don't know the answers to these questions, but I do know that whatever it is we will be in line when it comes out so that we can purchase another piece of Apples computing history.

What do you think?  Will you be in line with the rest of us, or will you be on the sidelines, waiting for a personal review?  Let us know and comment bellow.
