*I'm sorry if there's already such a thread. Please point me to it then.* Why would apple make a tablet? I don't see the benefits. Wow, you can touch it with your fingers, but that's only neat when you don't need to do a lot of work. So the iphone and ipod touch are enough for touch things. The only place I can think that needs touchscreens are the industrie (scanners, checking postages, running maintenance on robots etc) and some photoshopping etc. But for both is a "solution", for the industrie are way cheaper, more specified products. Apple would sail another course if they made something for that, than they sail now. And for our photographers you have wacom (or another brand) boards with screens in it. So what would be a hole in the market where apple is focusing on. Cause I don't see one. I truly don't , so if you know, please tell me.
