Apple TV poll ends, Apple Tablet name poll begins

With over 2,700 votes from iLounge readers, our latest poll—“Would a $30 monthly iTunes TV subscription service be enough to make you buy an Apple TV?”—has ended. Readers had positive options for indicating that they would consider purchasing an Apple TV if iTunes introduced a TV subscription service that included all or most of the shows that viewers enjoy watching, or if Apple changed the Apple TV hardware or pricing. Alternatively, readers could indicate that they would not be interested in purchasing an Apple TV even with these improvements, or that they already owned Apple TV hardware.

Interestingly, a 48% plurality of respondents indicated that a $30 iTunes TV subscription service would not be enough to convince them to purchase an Apple TV, while 22% of respondents indicated that they would purchase an Apple TV if the subscription service included all of the shows they enjoyed watching and only 8% would purchase it if they could only get most of their favorite shows. By comparison, 7% indicated that they would only consider purchasing an Apple TV if Apple increased the storage capacity or lowered the price, and 14% of respondents indicated that they already own an Apple TV unit. Thanks for all your votes!

In our new poll, we ask what you think Apple should name its upcoming tablet device, assuming that it’s going to be iPhone OS-based. Several names have been tossed around over the past few months, and we’re wondering which one you think is the best or most likely name for the upcoming device? iTablet, iBook, iPad, iPod touch XL, iSlate or something else entirely? Our new poll, “What should Apple name its upcoming tablet device?” lets you answer that question. If you have a preference that’s not amongst the listed choices, vote as such, and post it in the comments of this article. As always, you can find the iLounge Poll in the left-hand column of the main homepage. Cast your vote today!

It has to be itablet. There is no other reasonable option. I will be surprised if Apple misses this one.

MacPad? Mac&Touch;????? iTouch?? i would die laughing if they name it iTouch. It would bring an hilarious end to the itouch vs. ipod touch debate…

I really like the iThink suggestion

I heard the term “Apple’s Slate” mentioned in a youtube video of a NY Times meeting.

I think it’ll be the iPod Slate, in keeping with all other iPod items, the common term will be just “Slate”, just like the iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPod Classic….....

I think a tablet will be more App store driven, and less an OSX device.  So using the term “iPod” it’ll send a verbal signal then you can fill it in iTunes, like other Apple devices.

How about iMulti(task)?

Those who said Mac Tablet would be correct.
Apple is getting away with “i” in it’s computers except iMac so far.

Macpad….no…to fem.

MacTablet is appropriate and even biblical for those who care.

I think the apple slate sounds great.  When I first heard it, I thought: this could be legit!
If they were sub $600 or maybe sub $500, I would definitely pick one up for books, magazines, and at home web browsing.  As nice as the iphone is, reading long articles and scrolling through ilounge, engadget, cnet, facebook, and a slew of other sites would be much easier with 6 extra inches, plus being able to switch right over to a book would be true convenience!

Apple Fuji, Apple Pippin, Apple Braeburn, Apple Dulcet.  There are a thousand names to choose from.  Although iX has been used in only a few Apple products, the name has become a parody of itself.  Time to ove on.

They should call it ‘SlateBook Touch’

iTablet is used by another company already and iPad has already been used for a past Apple product.

iAM (Apple Mobile)

Posted by Enrico Capraro on December 15, 2009 at 9:38 AM (CST)


I think if it is more like OSX then tablet Mac or Mac Tablet or Mac Pad,

if it’s going to be more like the iPod touch OS then iPad or iTablet would fit…

Apple should call it: MyTablet or MacTablet.
