Our Apple tablet hardware, software wish list

As long as everyone's speculating blindly, we took the initiative to work up a wish list of hardware and software for when or if the Apple tablet is ever released.

Not really the Apple tablet.

Hardly a day goes by without some form of feverish speculation gripping the Web about the existence of a tablet computing device from Apple. While most of these echo-chamber blog posts are fact-free excursions into wild speculation, the general zeitgeist points to a possibly 10-inch device that may cost $699-$799, and be released either in September, November, or sometime next year--perhaps on the heels of the similar-sounding CrunchPad tablet .

According to Barrons , an anonymous analyst who claims to have had some hands-on time with a prototype would specifically say only, "It's better than the average movie experience, when you hold this thing in your hands."

With a seemingly blank canvas like that, there's plenty of room for industry watchers to stamp their own wants and needs on this unconfirmed piece of hardware. As long as everyone's speculating blindly, we took the initiative to work up a wish list of hardware and software (see also this previous piece on Erica Ogg's fantasy Apple tablet features) for when or if the Apple tablet is ever released.
