A New Tablet Computer from Apple?
The New York Times reports on the anticipated release of an exciting new product from Apple -- a tablet computer:

The Web site Gizmodo guessed that the device was likely to be called the iSlate, will cost around $800, and won’t hit store shelves until March or possibly April. (And it’s not just Apple: Word of a color tablet device called Courier from Microsoft made a big splash on the site as well, and a company called HTC reportedly has one in the works that uses the Google Chrome operating system. And there are others.)
