    I have a few thoughts on the possible name of Apple's tablet...

    First off- its not going to be called the islate or slate because there is already an hp tablet running windows called the slate. Although I will admit, its a nice sounding name.

    Secondly, I don't believe its going to be called the ipad. Sort of like the "itouch" -its just a stupid sounding name. Ipod was original and Ipod touch was logical but ipad just seems odd.

    I was thinking if the tablet ran some sort of hybrid between the mac OS and iphone os, it could logically be called a Mac Touch or Mac Tablet.

    Or how about this for radical, the "Apple Tablet".

    My money is on some sort of two word title, and maybe I am going against popular opinion here, but my bet is the name wont start with an i.

    I hope that the name is something that ends the use of the word "Tablet". That our poor rumor-mill guesses are so far in left field that a year from now the notion that we referred to the Apple "Tablet" will be laughable.

    I'm going with Mega-Happy-Board.
