At this point, the coming Apple tablet has been all but officially confirmed. We know it's coming, we know (more or less) when, and we know most of what it will be able to do. All we're in the dark about is its name.

Some people have suggested the iTablet. Our friends at Snippets make a good case against that. All of the previous major 'iThing' releases have been been one syllable words. “iMac”, “iPod”, “iPhone”, the list goes on and on. The name 'iTablet' doesn't roll off the tongue, nor would it be particularly easy to market. Here are a few alternate names that have been proposed;
1. iPad. PROS: It's a catchy name, it would be easy to market, and it makes sense. CONS: It sounds more like low-income housing for Apple fans than a product line.
2. iTab. PROS: It's a good way to abbreviate 'tablet, it's catchy, and its short. CONS: It sounds more like a tabbed browsing app for the iPhone than a tablet PC.
3. iMac/iPhone Tablet: PROS: Both names are logical, considering it's a tablet computer that runs off the iPhone OS. CONS: This is a product line of its own, and deserves its own name.

At this stage of the game, it's anyone's guess what this new product is going to go by. Until we hear further news from Apple, I'm going with the iTablet. It's not the product's real name, but it's the name that pretty much every news site knows it by. Got a better idea for a name? Post it below.
