Wired for the Apple Tablet

We still don't know what the fabled Apple Tablet actually looks like, or if it even exists, really, but this concept magazine reader from Condé Nast gives us a glimpse at what to expect from tablet apps.


Turn down your volume before hitting play, loud techno music awaits. Down? OK, good. Now let's look at what we've got here. It's about what you would expect from a tablet magazine reader. The big screen lets you soak in the magazine layout without zooming, and the graphics are big and interactive. In a nutshell, it looks like a hi-res iPhone app.

According to the source, Condé Nast doesn't want to take any chances, and the app is a precautionary measure to make sure they're ready if/when the device comes out. So don't take this to mean that launch is imminent. Take it as a sign that even if the tablet doesn't exist, it should, because a lot of huge publishing companies are more than willing to throw their weight behind it. [Wired]


Wow, thanks Giz. Without that video, I would have no idea what a scaled-up, internet enabled iPhone would be used for.

Now, from what I can see, the entire video (the video in the video) is rendered, so however slick and seamless the GUI/hardware looks in the video, it has absolutely nothing to do with the actual product we're all eventually going to see on the shelf. They're only showing off that this gadget could *potentially* serve as a full color e-reader and internet browser, which is only 99.995% likely anyhow.
