Analysts Talk Apple Tablet, Make Ever More Predictions
CNN Money rounded up a bunch of analysts to basically talk about how great the Apple Tablet is, how it’s going to cure cancer and save the publishing industry and keep your girlfriend from leaving you, and it’s mostly a rehash of what we’ve already heard before with a dash of a few inane statements that are almost certainly not true. Check this one:

The device will come in several different models that offer varieties of Internet connections, such as Wi-Fi or 3G, perhaps through a contract with AT&T.

Oh, really? Several different models, with varying internet connections? That sure sounds like Apple — they love confusing lineups that differ by virtue of technical specifications that only tech dorks like you and I understand.

Otherwise, nothing to see here, just more analyst talk. When something solid on the Apple Tablet leaks out, you’ll know — and it ain’t to be found in this article, which is why it lands, with a distinct PLOOP sound, into Remainders. [CNN]
