Yukari Iwatani and Ethan Smith of the WSJ shovel out a boatload of new details about the Apple tablet.

Highlights:

  • Apple wants to “reshape businesses like textbooks, newspapers and television much the way his iPod revamped the music industry—and expand Apple’s influence and revenue as a content middleman.”
  • Apple has had talks with NYT, WSJ, Conde Nast, Harper Collins, et al
  • Tablet designed to be used by multiple family members to read news and check email
  • Tablet will have a virtual keyboard
  • Apple is working with Electronic Arts to show off the tablet’s game capabilities
  • Apple has apparently discussed how people might pay for the NYT through iTunes.
  • Tablet is designed to be shared.  May come with facial recognition camera.  Users may be able to leave virtual sticky notes for other users.
  • Apple sent reps to the Frankfurt Book Fair
  • Apple pitched a “Best Of TV” service to networks, in which consumers would buy a bundle of programming across multiple networks.  One exec says the company was looking to bundle 4-5 shows per channel
  • Apple wants to launch a web-based version of iTunes by June.  This would allow people to use the store without special iTunes software.  The service would also have distributed “Buy” buttons all over the web.
  • In November, Apple hired a former textbook publishing executive who is responsible for “driving global strategy and revenue for the education online store for students.”

Exciting stuff. View full article here
