iSlate announcement expected today
Jobs set to announce iSlate at press event today.

Steve Jobs is set to take to the stage of the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco today. Rumours have been flying around that the much anticipated iSlate will be officially announced. Price points have yet to be confirmed but TiG expects that the iSlate will sit in the middle ground between a top end Mac Mini and the mid range Mac Book Pro. It will certainly be more expensive than the iPhone thats for sure.

Described in the media as a giant iPhone, features and specs are as yet to be confirmed. TiG doubts very much that the announcement will take on the form depicted in our image! But in the current climate we believe that the iSlate is going to struggle to find a market to bury into. Obvioulsy, with Apples huge fan base, we could be wrong. But large touch screen devices have always found it difficult to become established and unless you are simply dripping in cash, would you buy it?

TiG are however rather excited, and look forward to getting the true tech specs and a clear overview of who and what this device is aimed at. Also could there be a hint of iPhone 4G coming today? Unlikely but you never know with Apple.
