In a CNNMoney.com report, today one could say that Apple CEO Steve Jobs has unofficially confirmed the existence of the highly anticipated Apple Tablet.
The report is a focus on the financial status of Apple Inc., indicating that the company is doing very well with sales rising 32% to a record $15.7 billion, an amount that exceeded analyst forecasts of $12.1 billion.
However, near the end of the article, readers are treated with this little gem:
“If you annualize our quarterly revenue, it’s surprising that Apple is now a $50+ billion company,” said Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs in a statement. “The new products we are planning to release this year are very strong, starting this week with a major new product that we’re really excited about.”
If you missed the reference, I will reprint it here: “starting this week with a major new product that we’re really excited about“.
If one considers Apple’s current product line, a “major new product” is definitely not a refresh or an update. Instead, this will most likely be the fourth leg to the Apple chair that is currently occupied by Mac, iPhone and Music.
Are you ready for Wednesday?
