While all this excites a lot of people interested in him, Walt Mossberg, a technology columnist for the The Wall Street Journal, does not have such a broad opinion on the functions that the Cupertino people can plan for the gadget, be aware of the fact that this personal opinion, in the rumor.
He addressed the issue in his weekly column of responses to questions asked by some readers and was brief in clarifying that there is nothing official from Apple that would motivate anyone to wait for that tablet instead of purchasing an eBook like the Kindle, for example. thinking that we are only talking about the possibility of reading content.
