The Sydney Morning Herald’s Asher Moses claims in a recent piece that Apple has been in discussion with media companies about including their content on the device.
It is understood that Apple has been in direct talks with Australian media companies to launch a new app for the tablet that would allow them to distribute their content in digital form and charge for it.
Moses also mentions that Apple has sent device specifications to Australian media companies, but none of them were willing to talk about the device on the record.
The tablet is tipped to be a larger version of the iPhone. It is small enough to carry in a handbag but too big to fit in a pocket.
It doesn’t sound to me like Moses knows any more information than we already do. The note about the size of the device is interesting, but it could just be based off of previous rumors and speculation.
