In the past two months, we must have heard a gazillion rumors and speculations about the upcoming Apple Tablet. One of the more ‘confirmed’ among these was that the Tablet could be running on the iPhone OS 4.0 which was also expected to be part of the announcement scheduled for Wednesday.
It now appears that the Tablet might not come with the 4.0 operating system after all. Flurry, the mobile analytics company has recently revealed that their system was able to track app usage from around 50 devices that had all the characteristics of the upcoming Apple Tablet. All this usage which was tracked from Apple’s Cupertino office pointed to the use of iPhone OS 3.2 and not 4.0 as earlier thought.
What could this mean? Well, for starters, this means that there could possibly mean that the Tablet’s operating system would not be too different from the iPhone’s; which also means that the Tablet will not be a direct substitute for the Mac since unlike Mac OS X, the iPhone’s current operating system does not let you use any application of your choice.
However, the OS being a 3.2 version, it could possibly mean that all the 130K+ applications available for download on the App Store will be seamlessly accessible from the Tablet, which is still a great news.
What do you make of this?
