Finally, we can almost kind of definitively maybe for sure say that without a doubt we are probably certainly going to see an Apple tablet really soon. As soon as next Wednesday, Jan. 27th 2010 at 10am PST, if Apple’s mysterious invitation to some lucky journos isn’t an elaborate soul-crushing hoax!

Guys, Wednesday is so soon! And Apple’s technicolor paint-splatter explosion image just makes me that much more excited. More exciting still, it looks like the mythical Mac tablet likely won’t be the only Apple announcement. Mr. Jobs and co. might also whip out the iPhone 4G to compete with Google’s Nexus One with features like an updated camera (with flash, prob), multi-app support and a higher resolution screen, if I had to guess.
“I spoke to a source at Apple this morning, before the invite hit my inbox, who said the event would likely focus on three projects: The tablet device, iPhone 4, and a new round of iLife 2010 software. While we won’t see new iPhone hardware just yet, we will see the next-generation software.” – foxnews.com
But how can we make it until Jan 27th, you might ask? How can we survive a week of sustained exhilaration? Well, here’s one way, Autostraddle style.
Yes, that means we decided to let you in on what we know about Steve Jobs‘ technological second coming. Which is to say that we know absolutely nothing whatsoever. Yeah, there’s been lots of tablet concept art. But was it this gay? And did it make this little sense? Doubtful.
So, here it is! Our completely top-secret glimpse into the mystery of Apple tablet, the iSlate, the iPhone grande, the flat-Macbook-thinger-of-my-dreams! We hope our exclusive concept art, which is exclusive in that it is exclusively really, really weird, makes the wait ’til 10am PST next Wednesday the teensy-tiniest bit more bearable. Enjoy!
