    Here's what I get...

    Guang Dak'ua the full plate computer obtains the Apple Computer order form

    ¡ö Reporter Lin Chenmei the ¨u Taibei reported

    NotebookComputerThe main item broadly reaches strives for a big plant order form again next city! It is reported, Guang Da recently obtained Apple Computer first section to match 15 …¼ kneading boards plates computer order form, will produce goods to the next year first quarter; After this is Guang Daching carefully appraises, for the first time cross full plate computer domain.
    Since last year, the apple notebook computer generation of labor merchant has appeared the quite big change, is valuable including the PowerBook notebook computer by Guang Dachuan toward the kernel. The outstanding person the Chungli workshop will sell to Hua Shuohou, the iBook notebook computer order form flows to, also deeply studying with a master will focus attention on; This Guang Dahuo the Apple Computer plate computer order form, becomes the field hot topic of discussion once again.

    Since broadly has reached computer this year transport business performance extremely studying with a master to focus attention on, this company first quarter earning 552 hundred million Yuan, a same time last year are larger than growth to surpass six tenths, the first quarter notebook computer produce goods the quantity also to surpass 200 ten thousand, surpasses the kind treasure, England industry reaches, Hua Yu assembling.

    The field public figure believed that, Guang Dai high occupies the market main item throne, still could have so astonishingly grows, this year the earning easily will surpass original estimate 2,,000 hundred million Yuan, challenged 2,,500 hundred million Yuan.

    It is reported, Guang Dawei the apple generation of labor plate computer, will be industry jieshou matches 15 …¼ kneading boards the plate computers, in addition, this plate computer also will match the keyboard; The market public figure pointed out that, the Apple Computer will push the plate computer not to emphasize the kneading board and the keyboard will separate function, but will be emphasized its notebook computer will have the input type kneading board the function.

    At present the global ten big personal computings brands industry center, the idea has Huipu, Toshiba, macro ?, Fujitsu, NEC, the Czechoslovakia prestige and so on industry releases the plate computer, the kneading board by 12 …¼ and 14 …¼ primarily.

    Although Microsoft pushes the plate computer in the global strength, but because the plate computer selling price is higher, did the product make a reservation still not to be clear about and so on the factor, whether the field public figure initiates the sales upsurge regarding the plate computer in the short-term still to have the different view; In the brand industry center, Dell has not still released the plate computer, IBM also emphasized this company on has released the similar function product in many years ago, but the market response is not certainly warm.

    In the domestic notebook computer generation of labor big plant, is valuably most positive by the kernel to the plate computer, for beautifully discusses one after another Motion Com-puting, the association and the Czechoslovakia prestige generation of labor plate computer; Guang Da, England industry reaches, Hua Yu and so on is immature take the market as the reason, positively invests the plate computer generation of labor domain by no means.

    Because looked like for a long time, the plate computer still was the future market important tendency, therefore Guang Da, England industry reaches the interior all to point out, the correlation researches and develops the production technology to be already mature, has the ability to begin the actual production as necessary.

    I really have a hard time believing that a "cry of a crane intestines" as the article says, will be featured on this PB.... This just goes to show you how unrealiable these rumors are... I mean really, aren't cranes protected??? And their intestines could only make a wet, sloppy mess...

    Unless they are dried...

    And really, how much is in a "cry"??? Is it anything close to a "gaggle"???

    Next they'll be saying it will have a 970! Crane's intestines are more believable!!!

    plx someone make a proof reading for me plx. sorry for the "not so good" english
    and some of the company's name may not right

    Guang Da get a order from the Apple Computer, stepping into the tablet PC's market


    The leader in notebook computer industry, Quanta, got an order from the leadering computer company! As the info we got, Quanta recently got an order from Apple Computer inc. in request to produce Apple's first 15 inches LCD tablet PC, and going to send them out to apple in the first quarter next year ; this is the first time Quanta join the tablet PC industry, after its long consideration.

    Since last yr, there is a great change in Apple portable computer's OEM, including that the Powerbook is now made by Yan Bo, which made by Quanta before. And the change of order after Jing Yin selling its plant to Asus is also remarkable, and shocking the notebook computers' industry. This time Quanta got the tablet PC orders may shock the industry again.

    Quanta's performance this year is so good, shocking the industry. Quanta earns 552 hundred million taiwan money in just the 1st quarter, a 60% raise compare to last yr's 1st quarter. They made 2,000,000 notebook computer this period, much more than the amount that Yan Bo, Yan Yi Ta and Wa Yiu made totally.

    People in the industry think that Quanta is now at the top of the taiwan notebook computer industry. Having that 60% increase, they estimate Guang Da will earn 2.5 billion taiwan money, much more than their pervious estimation.

    From the info we got, the Apple tablet PC will be the world frist 15 inches one, coming with a key board. A person from the industry state that the key board cannot spreate form the main body,(osmium remark: the screen part, i think) (or: it get the spreation system, but Apple will not make it as an selling point) but it will still get a touch screen.


    the remainings have no relation to apple tablet or Quanta, just something about the view point to tablet pc of other company

    Maybe next 15" Aluminium PowerBook will have touchscreen or drawing capability with electric pen?

    New iBook?

    Or it might be for a new iBook. Think about schools where students dont use books or paper, just an iBook tablet. Kind of like the eMate but ALOT better and actualy usefull. I think that is one place that a tablet computer might come in handy.

    A little obeservation from my lightpen days: using a pen on a vertical or angled screen gets VERY tiring VERY fast. Simply adding a pen to a screen that's attached to a notebook in the usual way doesn't sound likely to fly.

    Apple surely has SOMETHING in mind for Ink... I guess time will tell what.

    I've also found another article regarding this rumor:


    It just gets more interesting by the day :)

    If true, I imagine it will be a successor to the current 15" Powerbook, with a screen that rotates and flips so you can use it in tablet mode, kind of like the "convertible" version of the tablet pc windows notebook. I think of Toshiba. With the current Powerbook being only 1" thick, it's actually thinner than the currently available Asus and Toshiba models, approaching the thickness of "normal", slate versions of tablet pcs. It is still a notebook, just with an optional, added functionality.

    Sounds like perhaps smart display too?

    Perhaps this is the "smart display" (e.g. wireless, letting you access your desktop machine from anywhere) that I had mentioned and asked about last week?

    How can something be wireless, not have a battery, and work all at the same time?

    Is it solar powered?

    Disregarding the lack of battery, I think that a wireless display is the natural progression of technology - I could totally see a bluetooth or (is this possible? I doubt it) 802.11b (or g) display. Apple has always been trying to get rid of wires - sounds good to me.

    Well, with all the vagueness and gaps in translation, this new thingy could be anything.

    To me, it sounds more like an iMac replacement than a truly portable tablet PC. It could simply be a new iMac with a wireless keyboard.

    Wireless Display without a battery? What do you have to do crank it? :confused:

    Thank you Osmium for that translation! If you hadn't been kind enough to do that for us we'd still be debating the finer points of crane intestine integration with the new powerbooks. Cheers! :)

    Re: wireless

    Is a wireless display even possible? Is it possible to convert VGA or DVI signals into something wireless, like bluetooth? I've yet to hear of such a technology.

    beeeyooowwww - beeeeeyooowwww

    No, no, it runs on a special macrumors reality distortion field. simular to the jobs reality distortion field but, makes readers believe they can run a quad 980 tablet mac with simply Mac OS X (tabby) and the cold sweat of thier hands.
