Is the Apple Tablet Finally Coming in 2010? Rumors of Apple Tablet Demo in January

Rumor to Reality: Will We See the Apple Tablet in January?

I can't think of any bigger tech rumor in 2009 then those surrounding the fabled Apple Tablet. Rumblings of the gadget started well before the first of the year, but it seemed that 2009 was a big year for speculation . . . less so for announcements. While we now know the device is real and we're even hopeful for an early 2010 launch date, there were many questions surrounding the device floating around in 2009, leading many to believe (myself included) that no such device was going to launch.

Given the secrecy surrounding new products that Apple is known for, I'm not surprised that so many false reports "leaked" about the Tablet. Late this year, we heard some more news that Apple was shopping the tablet to would-be Australian developers to gauge interest in the device, and that it would feature a 9.6-inch touch screen and retail between $799 and $999. It's even had a couple of different names — we've heard it referred to as the Tablet, Slate, and iPad, but still no word from Apple.

As an admitted Apple fan, I want to be excited about the news. But after hearing conflicting, secretive, and cryptic reports for months, it's hard to get too excited. Then this morning, news began breaking from a few sources about a January demo for a seven-inch tablet. Could we be seeing the Apple Tablet at this year's CES?
