MacBook touch?

Is there a MacBook touch coming to Macworld Expo 2009? that is the persistent and intriguing rumor. MacDailyNews links to the New York Times bits blog with this statement “Or is it the “MacBook touch” about which we reported on July 22, 2008? We hear that Macworld Expo 2009 is going to be very interesting.”

the bits blog has this nugget in it:

However, [steve jobs] gave a more nuanced answer to the question of whether Apple plans to jump into the “nascent” market for netbooks, essentially restating his comments on the question from last week at the Macbook introduction in Cupertino by saying the company was taking a wait-and-see attitude.

At the same time, he noted that the company already had a powerful entry in the category: the iPhone. (By that standard, Apple is already the dominant netbook manufacturer by orders of magnitude.)

Mr. Jobs also said the company “had some pretty interesting” ideas if the category continues to evolve.

UPDATED: That would seem to confirm findings that a search engine company shared with me on condition that I not reveal its name: The company spotted Web visits from an unannounced Apple product with a display somewhere between an iPhone and a MacBook. Is it the iPhone 3.0 or the NetMac 1.0?
