Apple and EA working on “tablet’s game capabilities”

It’s no secret that Apple is planning on unveiling its newest creation, a portable tablet-like device, on January 27. And, while the world speculates as to what the new gadget will have to offer, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that games will be an integral aspect of the tablet’s functionality. The newspaper has learned that Apple will be partnering “with videogame publisher Electronic Arts Inc. to show off the tablet’s game capabilities, according to one person familiar with the matter.” The move makes sense, as the two companies have already formed a prolific gaming relationship with the iPod Touch and iPhone.
