iSlate | The Tablet Insider

About the Editors

Robert Hatten & Nick Schooler have been following the Apple frenzy for two years.  It started when they began discussing the possibility of an Apple tablet, how cool it could be and more importantly… What the heck would it be called.  After many discussions and some research it came to Robert one night while researching the term Tablet PC on Wikipedia.  One of the other names Wiki referred to was a Slate.  iSlate had to be it.  Robert immediately ran it across Nick.  After some quick research and quick thinking, we were able to secure the web address that night,, which cements our claim to have guessed the name of this new device…  Though it is not out yet, and we don’t know the Official name, we are pretty sure based on some very interesting research that iSlate will be the name Apple goes with.
