Apple’s long rumored tablet computer is becoming a reality, as reports have pegged an unveiling to later this month and a commercial launch in March. Newswire AFP is reporting on facts that appeared in a Wall Street Journal article. The Journal has cited people with information from Apple that the company is launching a multimedia device enabled for movies, television, games and web access. The paper cited analysts in estimating the device would be priced at under $1,000, and also that it would resemble a large iPhone. The speculation around an unveiling this month is based on Apple renting out space for a large product launch event in San Francisco on January 26 or 27.
