OS X Snow Leopard - built for touchscreens

Ah conspiracy theories. Preserve of the suspicious and those who just love a good rumour monger. Well, with Apple’s 9 September event less than a week away, the latest gossip actually seems to make a modicum of sense. See, Snow Leopard’s virtual keyboard looks pretty big. So big, it could even work on a touchscreen.

So what, you say. Well this could point to the mighty Snow Leopard storming its way onto a new touchscreen device in the very near future. After all, a virtual keyboard you can resize would be ace on something like a 10–inch Apple Tablet.

Of course, this is speculation. But all will be revealed at Apple’s party next week. We’ll be down the front, bringing you all the gossip as it happens.
