    Name ideas for the PDA rumored to be announced at WWDC...

    Three names come to mind...

    iMac touch
    iMac air
    iMac nano

    I sort of think they will position it as a hand held Mac.

    Apple wouldn't use the iMac name. It's already associated with a specific product. iTablet, iPad, iNote, etc.

    Macpad Touch
    Macpad Tablet

    Ugly name, but oh well.

    To be honest, I wish they'd run Mac OS X on it rather than the iPhone/iPod Touch's OS X (that's just rumored though).

    The only thing I can think of is because unlike iPhone you have many apps that can be up at one time and the entire screen won't scroll like iphone. Maybe they will use it like a scroll ball on the might mouse. When you go one way it scrolls up and down the other way. Just a thought.

    Like I said before, I hate the fact that it's using OS X and not Mac OS X. Hopefully that part isn't true.

    They should go back to naming things after apples Macintosh, newton, pippin, etc.

    Or of course
    Newton 2 or iNewton 2.

    Probably be called the Mac Tablet though.

    I can understand the names mentioned so far. But iCore? Where did that name come from?
