The Apple event is taking place on January 27 and there is more news about the Apple latest Rumored Tablet and Iphone 4.0. To add some spice to the event Flurry has discovered 50 tablets in the Apple’s main Cupertino, CA campus. Have a look at the Tablet specs here
Flurry concludes that these devices are most likely the fabled Apple Tablets that we expect to be announced on January 27th, though the company traces testing on these devices back to “as early as October of last year”. Application usage has increased dramatically this month, consistent with what we’d expect for an Apple-built tablet.
Approximately 200 of the applications that Flurry tracked were downloaded onto these mystery devices. Approximately 75% of the applications downloaded, ~150 falls into the gaming category, with entertainment, books, and lifestyle apps being the next most popular. Here’s a graph depicting the downloads.
One interesting observation: this device seems to run the iPhone 3.2 software, rather than the iPhone 4.0 OS that is rumored to be unveiled this week. Could that mean that the device Flurry has identified isn’t the tablet, or that iPhone 4.0 won’t be ready for release for several more months? We’ll find out on Wednesday.
