Mac Tablet: You buying?

By Xeon Xai  

Been studying iPhone App Development over the past few months.  Reading all the books that I’ve been buying in the Apress series, so I don’t always find myself replying to all the comments or questions I get on this blog.  As I have about 1200 pages of iPhone books to read through as fast as possible.  I’ve already pre-ordered all the Apress books yet to be published on the iPhone.  What I read on other blogs is that the Mac Tablet will possible be supporting the iPhone OS and at the very least, iPhone App software technology with Cocoa Touch interfaces.  So I need to beef up my iPhone studies if I want to produce a decent set of software for such a device.

So here is the real question.  Are you going to buy the Mac Tablet if it is released this year?  If so, how soon after it’s released?  If not, why not?  Pros, cons, etc… Let me know what your thoughts are.

      I’m finding it very interesting and helpful with the Objective-C 2.0 dot notation abilities. How about you?

    Yeah, as soon as the SDK gets released.
    I dont think it will use the same iPhone OS, but another variation of OS X, using a bigger cocoa touch layer, with slightly different interaction model.

    Or at least that is what i hope, i don’t want a bigger iPod Touch…

      I’m hoping it has bluetooth keyboard/mouse ability. As for the SDK, I’m studying hard into the version 3. And I should be done with the books I’m reading by the time the version 4 is released in full.

      I will most likely buy one in advance as soon as the are up for pre-order.
