Om Malik and the Apple Tablet

Take a look at what Om Malk believes will happen on Monday. He seems to lend some credence to my earlier reporting on the Apple Tablet PC. Here is an excerpt:

Steve Jobs, like Howard Hughes, Mystifies

So how do I see this playing out?



First, this deal is going to be all about the laptops, especially those which can handle OS-X nicely, are light weight and consume less power. Because if that was not so, then Apple could as easily have signed a deal with AMD, which makes better x86 chips for the desktop. IBM has failed to deliver the low power consuming yet muscular versions of its G5 chips fine tuned for Powerbooks. Secondly, I think Apple will exploit Intel’s chips for often rumored Tablet PC, that could have features in common with Nokia 770 tablet. I would not be surprised that Monday morning, the announcement circles around XScale, or low powered Centrino chips.
