So I’ll assert what should be obvious to anyone thinking
rationally and not emotionally: Tablet is a nowhere category. For
all the hype about an Apple tablet, it is at best a niche
product. The world doesn’t need an Apple tablet, no matter what
the hype about rumored features or regardless of what actually
releases (if anything).
I will add that I do not believe Apple’s stock price is based on tablet speculation (Wilcox states that it is, and that therefore Apple is poised for a stock collapse if the tablet isn’t a hit). I think Apple’s stock value is based on speculation on the continued growth of the iPhone and Mac.
