Apple’s iPad was coming a long way but hey, here’s something that’s giving the fans-of-the-forbidden-geek-fruit new hope. Well, we did finally not waste our time by rumoring around with the size and announcement of the tablet, though the latter came even earlier than we projected. To be more specific, the ‘real’ iPad will sport a 10.7 inch touch screen display and will run on the iPhone OS! There’s also word that it will have both, 3G and non-3G versions. That’s surely cool. We can expect the iPad announcement by January 19th 2010. The release date is most likely to be in the middle of the year. So long, so bad.
