Richard Trincellito – Apple Tablet Talk

On Friday we had Jason Schwartz, an options strategist long on Apple (AAPL), explaining in Seeking Alpha Why Apple’s  iTouch Tablet Will Become Its Flagship Product.

On Monday we heard from Michael Scalisi, an IT manager writing in PC World, that the Rumored Apple Tablet Is a Train Wreck.

If the first hurdle of a successful Apple product is to capture the imagination of the chattering classes, this one is half-way there.

Of course, we don’t really know what the product is, what it looks like or when, if ever, it will be released. But that hasn’t stopped the trade press from weighing in – and quickly taking sides.

In this context, the most useful thing I’ve read lately is Harry McCracken’s PAQ – for Possibly Answered Questions, a kind of pre-emptive FAQ – in Monday’s Technologizer.

McCracken sorts through the myriad details that have been bruited about in nearly two years of press speculation (and, reportedly, four years of product development under Steve Jobs’ watchful eye) and draws a plausible picture of the rumored device and what it might be good for.

Among the tablet’s salient features, as McCracken sees it:

* Size: A 9.7-inch screen with something like 1024-by-600 pixels (the iPhone, by comparison, has a 3.5-inch screen and 480-by-320 pixels.
* Operating System: A version of the iPhone OS that supports a larger screen and special tablet features.
* Interface: Like the iPhone’s, it will be optimized for Web surfing, music, movies, very light e-mail, and other applications that don’t involve much data entry.
* Applications: From the 65,000 available on the App Store.
* Connectivity: Wi-Fi for sure. Bluetooth almost certainly. The big unknown: will it have cellular broadband?
* Other features: A front-mounted camera for video chatting. Perhaps GPS for navigation. Maybe an SD slot for importing photos. No Firewire or USB, says McCracken, although we don’t see why not.
* Cost: More than a netbook ($500 at the cheapest) and less than a MacBook ($999), unless subsidized by a cellular carrier. (In which case the monthly bills will push cost into the thousands of dollars over the life of a contract.)
* Availability: AppleInsider is pretty sure it’s early next year. The Financial Times is even more certain it’s September of this year. As McCracken points out, they can’t both be right.

Apple has on order a large number of 10 inch LCDs. They just brokered a deal for a large amount of flash memory. They have handwriting recognition from the Newton days and on Mac OS X at times… They have voice recognition from quite some time ago as well. The voice recognition of the current iPhone is pretty decent. Stir it all in a blender and I’d say a 1024×600 or maybe 1200×800 or higher. The iPhone is 160 pixels per inch and they likely want similar resolution for product differentiation and compatibility with iPhone perception of sizes of objects.

I’d guess a fixed battery. And lifespan of 20 hours use are goals. Maybe 16 hours on time. Lots more room for the battery and the processor is the same power consumption.

Of course it could be a novel technology display blending e-ink and LCD or OLED to save power.

Apple Table PC Excitement

Apple Tablet PC

Although I still think that Apple will be the first to surprise us with a laptop or TabletMac making use of the iPhone’s multitouch technology, other manufacturers are on the lookout to enter another market that some look forward to. HP for example has announced that in about 18 months are planning to market a laptop that makes use of multitouch technology that is now in the Apple iPhone. It will be the beginning of the implementation of this technology across its entire range of computer equipment to carry and other products. Bends that the company already has something similar with its range Touchmart HP, but on desktops.

The reason given Phil McKinney, HP to believe in the success of these devices we share fully and has much to do with user experience which both talk lately: touch technology is the ideal or less traumatic for those users who do not technicians but users are playing for the first time a gadget. It seems a sensible strategy if we consider that consumer electronics is now well established among many young and active users of the same, but there is a large market of customers if they know they do not want to complicate your life with pots and want simplicity. Just what we talked about the Amazon Kindle.

Reason not missing from HP, as it is expected that by the year 2013 will double the number of computers with touch screens, which now are present in handheld devices, monitors and desktop computers, but not active on laptops.
