Looks like Apple is almost certainly not going to meet it’s self-declared deadline of end of 2009 for Windows 7 support in Boot Camp. Of course, there is still almost 2 days to go in 2009, but with all the rumors on the web about a tablet, I don’t think Windows 7 support is their highest priority.
On an aside, it is now going on almost 2 months since Snow Leopard was updated and 3 months since the iPhone OS got an update. This, to me, is the biggest indicator that Apple is working on something big. Back when the iPhone was announced, Apple was then working on MacOS X 10.5 (aka, Leopard). They were originally going to release Leopard at the end of 2006. Instead, they pushed Leopard’s release date to October of 2007 because they were focusing on the iPhone. It appears something similar may be underway right now since there hasn’t even been any rumors about a Snow Leopard or iPhone OS update in a while.
