Apple Media Pad Device From Verizon?

On April 28, 2009

As reported on mac rumors tonight…

"BusinessWeek was able to confirm with Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam that Verzion had been in talks with Apple but could not get any details from McAdam.

Instead, the magazine cites "two people familiar with the subject" as the source for these two possible Apple devices. The Apple media pad is said to be smaller than Amazon’s Kindle ebook reader but its touchscreen is bigger than the Kindle’s. The source predicts that this new product will be a category defining breakthrough device:

‘The media pad category might go to Verizon,’ said the person who has seen the device. ‘We are talking about a device where people will say, ‘Damn, why didn’t we do this?’ Apple is probably going to define the damn category.’ "

Even though we aren’t in the rumor business, this was just too good not to post!
