Does Logos have any plans to produce a version for the Mac tablet if it's released? I would imagine that it would be similar to the iphone version as the Mac tablet will probably be running a modified iPhone OS from most of the speculation I've seen. it would be great to be able to use it as an eBook type reader, I really have no desire to buy a kindle! But I would love to be able to use it to read resources from my library. A MBP just doesn't quite cut it laying in bed and the iPhone screen is to small for me for extended reading.

Yes  I've been hoping for the same!  If Apple does release a Tablet at the end of this month or soon thereafter, I was hoping it'd be easy for Logos to implement it to a Mac Tablet since they've already done it with the iPhone.  It'll be interesting to see what Apple has up their sleeve.  It would be really neat if there was the ability to use either the E-ink technology and be able to do full color.  I'm sure the tablet would be able to do color, but hoping the E-ink is an ability as well so it's not too bright when trying to read a book for awhile.

I'm not sure whether or not I comment on any plans regarding potential products for unannounced hardware platforms.

I actually put off purchasing an e-book reader last year in hopes that the Apple tablet would be realized in the near future. I certainly had access to my Logos library in mind when evaluating whether to make a purchase immediately or to wait to see what Apple does in terms of a new product. Although I'm getting use to reading on my IPOD Touch, a larger screen would make the reading experience more pleasant. Thanks for posting this question and I hope that we can run Logos on the ITablet, or whatever they call it!

I have been watching the Apple tablet rumours. A best case scenario would be that it runs some form of OSX and can run the regular version of Logos 4 Mac, or possibly an iPhone type app which will also run the current Logos 4 iPhone. Personally, I prefer the former over the later. Either way, this will enable you to use your tablet like a kindle type reader to read the theology books on offer from Logos without being tied to your computer.

no interest in windows what so ever on my part... but you know what it says elsewhere:

God does not make distinctions... either free or slave, mac or windows... (or something like that)

Actually Ballmer was demoing an HP "Slate" this morning. I think he is trying to up stage Apple in the announcement of theirs.
