New York Times Working With Apple?

kk.jpgEver since the idea of an upcoming Apple tablet device has been circling among tech and media insiders, there has been rumors about The New York Times‘ involvement in the project. In October, editor Bill Keller slipped up, mentioning the paper’s work with Apple in a speech that was supposed to be off the record.

But although the paper, and Keller, have tried to dampen the rumors, they persist, especially as we head towards Apple’s surprise announcement on Wednesday — which everyone assumes will be the introduction of some giant iPod-like tablet device. Today, in an article about the impending tablet, The Los Angeles Times reports that a team from the Times has been working closely with Apple:

“A team from the New York Times has been working in Apple’s Cupertino, Calif., headquarters in recent weeks, developing a large-screen version of the newspaper’s iPhone application that incorporates video for the yet-to-be-unveiled device, according to one person with knowledge of the matter. A Times spokeswoman declined to comment.”

Guess we’ll have to wait until Wednesday to see.
