MacBook Pro Core i5 leak

You know that Apple event that focuses on mobility products that is rumored to be happening at the end of the month? Looks like it won’t be just related to the Apple tablet iSlate iPad super iPhone. With the new Core i5 and i7 chips having just launched, we figured they’d make their way into the MacBook Pro line soon enough. In fact, Intel seems pretty confident here too, being that they are running giveaways where you could win a Core i5-powered MacBook Pro, despite the fact that they technically don’t exist. Yet. We bet that’ll change before the month is over.

Apple Event on Jan 26 says Fox News and Financial Times

2010 will be the first year that doesn’t take part in MacWorld, but that doesn’t mean the company doesn’t have big announcements that need to be made. According to both the Financial Times and Fox News, they’ve been told by a “source inside Apple” that the company will be holding a special event on January 26th that will be focused on the mobility space. What does that mean? The iSlate / iGuide / iPad / Apple Tablet should become a reality.

Now, we aren’t ones to spur unnecessary excitement, but lets look at the facts. The last iPod event was on September 9th, so we know that this won’t be focused on the iPod, although we wouldn’t be that surprised to see an iPod touch with a camera appear here. The MacBook Pro should be getting a spec bump based on new Intel architecture, but that wouldn’t be enough in and of itself to warrant a special Apple Event. The rumors and leaks have gone on long enough, and we think that January 26th will mark the day that Apple shows the world how tablet entertainment devices should be done.

What do you think?

Apple Tablet

You’ll definitely wanna file this one under “rumor,” but if DigiTimes is to be believed, that that we’ve all been waiting for with baited breath will be manufactured by Foxconn. The peeps at DigiTimes are saying that Foxconn will be shipping up to 400,000 devices by April 2010, and that these devices will have a 10.6-inch display.

Hey, it’s fun monitoring these rumors, but I’m tired of having my emotions played with, Apple. Give me a touch-sensitive tablet next in the first quarter of 2010, okay?
