Apple Netbook/Tablet Rumored to Be Released in October

The buzz about Apple’s new netbook/tablet has picked up again and we’re here to let you know the latest deets.

The company is rumored to be releasing their new netbook-like device in October of 2009 with a price tag of roughly $800. Info Times has reported that Apple has placed netbook-related orders to three Taiwanese companies (Foxconn, Wintek, and Dynapack).

According to a translated Chinese text at MacRumors, Wintek will provide a 9.7″ touchscreen for the netbook and Foxconn will be manufacturing the device. According to tech blog Venture Beat, Apple is rumored to be using PA Semiconductor chips for this new netbook.

There is no doubt that Apple’s netbook/tablet will be spectacular. Having already scorned the basic netbook, (the CEO labeled netbooks as “junky”), Apple must have some neat stuff up its sleeve for its newest creation.

One rumor is that the Apple netbook will be able to support high-definition graphics. The Wall Street Journal has reported that Steve Jobs has been supervising this effort.

We’ll have the latest news about Apple’s new netbook/tablet as soon as it comes out, so stay tuned to learn more about this extraordinary device.
