Speculation about a possible Apple tablet has started infiltrating the mainstream media with an article on ABCNews summarizing public reaction to this possibility. The buzz about Apple’s next product kicked into high gear after Apple’s Peter Oppenheimer uncharacteristically described a new product during the Q3 2008 financial results conference call.

Rumors about a Macbook Touch or iTablet have however been floating around for sometime. Shortly after the financial results call, MacDailyNews published an unconfirmed report about a “MacBook Touch” with a laundry list of possible features. While the exact details of the report remain up for debate, an earlier rumor from Jason O’Grady did point to a Mac OS X tablet launching this September or October.
