Nintendo hard at work to find way to use more than one tablet for their next console.Nintendo hard at work to find way to use more than one tablet for their next console.

It seems that Nintendo had originally planned to have only one controller / tablet accessible to the Wii U at launch time (the other controller would have been your standard Wii-mote variety). Someone at Nintendo must have realized that this would probably be a bad idea so they have been hard at work at trying to make two tablets work for the console. The console's processor and RAM constraints may have played a part in pairing a singular tablet. However, Nintendo may have solved this so multi-tablet gaming may be coming to a living room near you.

Interesting news when combined with the all-to-recent rumors of an Android tablet coming to Verizon. And apparently Google has already even gotten approvals from roughly 25,000 authors and publishers.

At tomorrow's Apple media event you will probably see the unveiling of a tablet-like device of some kind, most likely a tablet. That's just my guess. I'm not an authority on the subject by any means.

The text on the colorful invite simply says 'come see our latest creation'. Most of the major news sites (especially Fox News who claims they have a confirmation from an inside source) are convinced that the we will finally get a glimpse of the non-fabled tablet in the very near future.

Ten technologies that will somehow manage to rock 2010.Ten technologies that will somehow manage to rock 2010.

This covers all the bases that you've probably heard about somehow. For example, the soon-to-be-released-not-so-fabled-after-all Apple tablet, the perils of net neutrality, the hazy goodness of cloud computing, and mind altering views that you can see with some augmented reality. Woohoo.

Gee, this wouldn't have anything to do with a certain company coming out with a certain product that may or may not be tablet-related does it? Maybe this is a clue that Verizon will have something to do with the impending iSlate? Maybe it's just wishful thinking.

Arrington said this was like Foxconn telling Apple the night before the launch that they'd take care of the iPhone by themselves. This is ingoring the part where Apple actually built the software for the iPhone and TechCrunch is just a blog.
