Video: TabCo tablet in Apple Lemmings Parody?

| August 3, 2011 | 66 Replies

We’ve been following the TabCo story for a while, initially convinced it had something to do with Nokia. Now, I’m not so sure.

Today they tweeted:

The SuperBowl has some of the best commercials– remember this one? Change is coming as we #ReinventTheWheel.

The video links to an Apple advert about lemmings. A video from 1985 that somehow predicts (like their think different ad) that they will be this big brother type character with an army of iLemmings :p.

TabCo have ‘reinvented’ that video

This all feels very Motorola

Here’s their tablet

It looks like an iPad got replaced with an iPad. Looks slim enough.

It has an uneven bezel over the face. Thicker at the left and right than the top and bottom. And it’s widescreen. It might not be what the tabco tablet looks like at all.

In the end, everyone is still a lemming.

Remember the unveiling is only 12 days away. The revolutionary thing about this is more the OS/UI/UX.

I don’t get this but there’s a story about Beige.

Thanks for the tip, foo, who asks, “am i the only one who is seeing a big N9 in this video?”
