More from the Apple Orchard

We’ve mentioned this many times. It’s clear to all that something’s coming.

Apple is working on a 7 to 10 inch touch-screen tablet for release in the first half of 2010 according to an article here at eWeek.com.

They’re also quoting a price in the $500 to $700 range, and while that’s a lot of green on the eBook reading front, it’s hard to complain because it’s not likely to be marketed as an eBook reader alone. That will just be one of its many functions, no doubt.

This is the first time I’ve read any reference to price so it must be getting close to completion. The article goes on to call this Apple’s response to the burgeoning eBook marketplace that will also allow them to enter the netbook market in a similar way “with a tablet, a premium mobile computing device.”

Then the fur’s going to fly, yah?
