Apple PDA/Mini Notebook Rumors Back Again

by Reads (5,692)

Rumors of Apple getting into the PDA business or at least the tiny notebook business are back again. Depending on which Mac fan site you visit it’s going to be called the iPad, Mac Pocket, Pocket Mac or iBook Mini.

Whatever it’s to be called, the rumored specs are as follows:

  • Lite version of OS X
  • 240 x 320 pixel display or larger
  • Inkwell handwriting recognition software
  • Foldable design, possibly including QWERT keyboard
  • Wireless – WiFi and Bluetooth
  • Firewire
  • Secure Digital memory card slot
  • Slim design

While it’s fun to speculate, we should all remember that Steve Jobs has said several times that not only does he not want to get into the PDA business, he’s glad Apple stopped after the Newton. While it’s fun to speculate and the industry could certianly use some new blood, especially Apple blood, don’t expect to see a product like this any time soon.
