Steve Jobs: Tablet “Most Important Thing I’ve Ever Done”
Posted 01/25/2010 at 6:38am | by J.R. Bookwalter
Nothing like kicking off “Tablet Week” with a rumored quote from Apple’s head honcho himself.
TechCrunch is reporting that they’ve heard from “completely independent sources” about how happy Apple CEO Steve Jobs is with the company’s as-yet unannounced tablet, presumed to be unveiled in San Francisco 10 am PST this Wednesday at a media event.
“This will be the most important thing I’ve ever done,” Jobs has been heard to exclaim. The quote has been repeated “multiple times second and third hand,” reportedly from senior Apple executives and friends of Jobs himself.
As TechCrunch notes, that’s saying a lot -- Jobs has spearheaded so many of Apple’s greatest hits that it would be hard for anyone in his position to rank them by importance.
“If Steve Jobs thinks the iPhone was just a warm up act to this device,” writes TechCrunch’s Michael Arrington, “I can’t wait to see what it can do.”
