ASUS says it is working with Apple on Mac Tablet Computer

Tablet PCs never really took off from Windows based PC makers like Gateway, Dell and HP. There is still a place for a tablet PC, which are commonly seen in the health care setting, but you rarely see them out in the wild with your typical geek at the helm. That could all change if Apple has anything to say about the table computer industry.

Apple has been on a roll recently with its iPhone selling like hotcakes well ahead of Apples goals leading to record sales for Apple. The iPhone was even chosen by TIME Magazine as the invention of the year. Apple has also recently released a full line of new iPods including the touch and a new nano. The new iMac computers were met with lots of praise when launched a few months ago, even though quality control issues with the new iMac computers have recently surfaced.

With Apple competing well in so many different aspects of the computer and electronics industry, could Apple be the company to break the tablet PC into the mainstream? According to a design patent Apple filed back in May of 2005 (D504,899), Apple may have had a tablet PC on the brain for more than a while.

Crave reports that at a private dinner with insiders from ASUS spilled the beans on the company's roll with Apple and the long rumored iPad.  This rumor has a bit more credibility than your typical Apple rumor says Crave as the insider that leaked this information is known to them and ASUS currently builds the Apple MacBook. Perhaps Apple is finally looking to put that patent filed way back in 2005 to use and take the table PC world by storm.

Even with the onscreen keyboard shortcomings of the iPhone, if Apple rolls out a higher-performance, larger iPhone-like device Apple fans will likely jump all over the new product.

One could reasonably expect that if this information coming from Crave is accurate, that the patent DailyTech reported about last month for a touchscreen interface with tactile feedback from Apple may also be incorporated into a new Apple tablet PC.
