If the Financial Times is right, we might have only one month to wait until “Tablet Tuesday”. They report:
Apple has something big up its sleeve for next month. The company has rented a stage at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco for several days in late January, according to people familiar with the plans. Apple is expected to use the venue to make a major product announcement on Tuesday, January 26th. Both YBCA and Apple declined to comment.
Remember, Apple turned down Macworld Expo 2010 which is usually scheduled for a week or so before this event. Instead, Macworld moved to February. This event would be sandwiched in between CES in January and Macworld.
According to the Yerba Buena calendar, the dates of the 25, 26 and 27th of January are open.
This date would also roughly coincide with iLounge’s prediction from earlier this year.
If Apple does announce the tablet next month, it will likely be at least few months longer before you can get your grubby hands on one. It will also be better than whatever you are getting for Christmas.
