Apple’s Steve Jobs is resting and preparing for his big day, many have called it the biggest announcement Apple CEO Steve Jobs has ever made. At least he is said to have been quoted as saying such.
So far we have pretty much confirmed through the “leak” by McGraw-Hill CEO of having worked with Apple for “a while” on the iSlate. Also, we could be seeing an iPhone/iSlate OS 4.0 released to support some new features and functionality.
The announcement should commence from San Francisco, at approx 10am.
Apple only says that it will be holding an event in San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater at 1 p.m. Eastern Time and 10 a.m. Pacific Time to debut its “latest creation.”

Jason Calacanis went on a tear twittering about the new device making numerous claims that could be on the fringe of violating his non-disclosure, but Jason is known to take it to the edge.
