Not One, But Two Apple Tablets?

If one rumored Apple Inc. tablet sets people’s imaginations alight, what will two do?

And two there very might well be. Envisioneering Group researcher Richard Doherty told BusinessWeek that Apple has designed two touchscreen tablets, one with a 6-inch screen (a bigger version of the iPod Touch??) and one with a larger screen, likely the 10-inchers Apple is known to have ordered from Wintek this Spring.

We might see the Apple tablet(s) in the September timeframe, Doherty said, saying that the decision to launch lies with Steve Jobs.

Tablets have been around for a while, but Apple is adding fresh buzz to the category. Jobs has famously decried netbooks, but a tablet would allow Apple to still get a toe in the growing sub-notebook category.
