After the iPad? The iBoard and iMat, Of Course!

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 108 comments

Bigger is always better, right?

Most people don't like the way Apple rolls out products. The company releases a device, only to roll out the "next version" a year later. The newer model usually contains only a few minor tweaks, which could have been implemented on the original (copy-paste on the iPhone anyone?).

It was this mindset that had people criticizing the iPad. "It's just a giant iPhone," they said. "It even runs the same OS as the iPhone and iPod Touch!" Well here's one for the people who think Apple's line of products has gotten just a bit too linear.

The folks over at begeek.fr have predicted the next two iterations of the Apple iPad. Behold! The iBoard and the iMat!

    to steal the idea from the pic a couple of weeks ago. Apple will controversially replace the i monkier for a u, leading to the release of the uBroke...

    Its funny, but I would still totally buy an iMat. Can you imagine it would be like a DDR pad but room sized...

    If I recall correctly, they did try to do some work with EA but I don't remember specifically why. Maybe a console was one of their potential goals at one point?
