This Week's Rumor Roundup: Apple, Zune, Pre, more

Mediocre, at best:
  • Windows 7 to cost more than Vista did?
    With everyone in the "tech biz" apparently in love with Windows 7, the marketing people had to do SOMETHING to inject a little of the usual "Microsoft Frustrating Experience™" into it!
  • Apple at CES?
    GREAT! Now I'll have to put up with fanboy nerds with a unique sense of self-importance ... AND Apple fans.
  • Visual Voicemail missing from Palm Pre?
    With the tens of dozens of voicemails I get each year, not being able to see them in print before hearing them is just another hurdle to my productivity. That's a dealbreaker, ladies!
  • New iPhone to be sheathed in rubber?
  • PSN store to offer ... games and music?
    HOLY CRUD! King Obvious has been busy writing this week's PlayStation rumors!
  • The ZuneX is ...?
    A music device? A gaming platform? An Xbox extension? Some even say it's a phone! We say: Well done, Microsoft! You're FINALLY been able to get the Internet to speculate (and often drool) over something no one has even seen yet. Today, boy, you are a man!
  • Apple tablet? Apple tablet? Apple tablet? Apple tablet? Apple tablet? Apple tablet?
    (Just in case you forgot that an Apple tablet is rumored to be coming in June.)
Jeff Somogyi is dealnews' Media Editor. He is currently wondering if Apple is going to announce a tablet, and why there's not been any coverage of it.
