Amidst the rumour whirlwind that is the ‘iTablet’ and the iPhone 4G possibly popping up at next week’s scheduled Apple event, plans for later in the year could involve the arrival of a 22-inch touchscreen iMac.
Speculation over a multi-touch iMac arrives courtesy of DigiTimes, who spotted and translated the revealing account in the China Times.

The navigating tech which is already available on Apple tech via the iPhone and iPod Touch, will apparently be produced by Taiwan-based manufactuer Quanta, with the screen panels being provided by Sintek Phototronic.
Apple’s recent buy-out of Magic Mouse, who are rumoured to be bringing a touch-sensitive case for the iPhone 4G, serves as an indication that multi-touch technology is high on the Apple agenda.
The company has yet to comment on the touchscreen iMac rumours, most likely due to more pressing tablet-shaped matters we’d guess.
