As if the rumors surrounding the January 27th Apple event weren’t enough already, another one has surfaced for later this year. According to a Chinese publication accessed by DigiTimes, “Apple will outsource production of the 22-inch model to Quanta, with Taiwan-based Sintek Photronic supplying the touchscreen panels.”
This certainly doesn’t sound like the rumored 10″ iTablet the internet has been raving about for the past couple of months. It could perhaps be another touch screen product coming from Apple this year. If the iTablet isn’t the device to do so, perhaps this rumored one will support the tactile feedback that Apple has patented.
While this rumor is to be taken with a grain of salt, in my opinion, there is certainly a possibility. Perhaps Apple will gauge how well their potential first step into the tablet market does later this month and then go from there. However, I don’t see how a desktop touch screen computer could be of much use since it may leave for some awkward operation. That said, perhaps retail stores may find them useful for their checkout desks. Stay tuned for more on this rumor…possibly.
