'iPod Touch HD' to have 10-inch screen? According to The Business Insider, Apple's upcoming Internet tablet, dubbed by the source as the "iPod Touch HD", will include a 10-inch screen, and could be ready as early as the Q3 2009.
CNN says the company is planning to sell the "netbook computer with a touch screen monitor" before the end of the year and could help the electronics maker make a strong push into the netbook market, which continues to grow at a rapid pace.

There is no other word on the pricing or what software will be used, but rumor has it the netbook will be more of a "low-end" Mac rather than a "high-end" iPod Touch.

Probably. I dont feel as though the apple software is worth an extra $600.
Most netbooks go for around $300, this will probably be somewhere around $800

If they sell it for $400-500, they will have a blockbuster hit seller.

And just put a stand and a few USB ports on it.. make the option to plug in a mouse and keyboard, and boom.

I've been wanting a netbook, and have been wanting a mac. I was going to do a hackintosh but if it is reasonably priced I'll get this.

I don't think that'll be its selling price. It's apple we're talking about.
