Apple to demo tablet at Jan event with iPhone apps?

Apple looks like it is preparing to present its tablet to the world soon, as it has been reported that the Cupertino-based company has asked app developers to prepare full screen resolution demos for an event booked in January.

An anonymous source told Business Insider: “They’ve told select developers that as long as they build their apps to support full screen resolution – rather than a fixed 320X480 – their apps should run just fine.”

Apple has just booked an event centre in San Francisco on January 26 for a product announcement, and it seem likely that this is when the Tablet will get its first outing.

Our inside source has already told us that it’s impossible to buy 7-inch touchscreens right now, and that this would point to a January launch.

Meanwhile one Apple employee revealed to the NY Times that consumers will be “very surprised by how you interact with the new tablet.” What exactly that means is anyone’s guess.

So, an event in January, Apple readying app developers and exciting new interfaces, it seems as though Apple tablet rumours are reaching critical mass now and an unveiling could be just around the corner.
