Apple iSlate Could go to AT&T and Verizon

There’s more reports/rumours going around about Apple [AAPL] and their iSlate or Tablet device saying that both AT&T and Verizon could be making it available on their networks. Up till now there hasn’t been much, if any, solid evidence that the device will exist but bits of information have been pieced together making it quite likely that the device will be unveiled next week at an Apple event where a big announcement will be made.

It is believed that a “world version” will be made making it compatible on CDMA and GSM standard networks which should be announced Wednesday. However, other rumours are saying a couple of versions will be made making each compatible with a particular network. Either way, I am sure it will be cleared up on the 27th.

A recent survey showed that 70% of people would not buy a tablet if it was to cost more than $700. The problem here though is that it is expected the device will cost up near $1000 and it isn’t clear if that is subsidized or not. Another problem shown in the survey said that people were not interested in having to have a 24 month contract to pay for data to keep it always connected.

Which ever way it gets launched I am sure it will sell due to the amount of interest already gained in the device. It will certainly be interesting to finally get a glimpse of what it will actually look like and how all the rumours will “hopefully” come to an end.
