Apple tablet virtually certain
Apple today confirmed at least some rumors today by announcing a special event on January 27th at 10AM Pacific. The company plans to hold the gathering at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and teases it with just a spray-painted Apple logo and an invitation to "come see our latest creation."
Most expect the announcement to center on the much talked about tablet, a 10-inch touchscreen device that would run a heavily modified variant of OS X iPhone. Other candidates for the event have included iPhone OS 4.0, Core i5 MacBook Pros and other portable hardware.
