More ultra-portable rumours?

Rumours of LED displays and ultra-portables as well as 3G cellular modem are starting to circulate, along with predictions of an "ultra-portable" replacement for the 12-inch Powerbook to arrive with Leopard around the end of the year.

Of course, we've been here before. Like the iPhone, which we talked about for over two years before it saw the light of day, we've been talking about a new hyper-portable for more than a year now. Predictions of an "instant on" laptop have been doing the rounds ever since the switch to Intel did away the 12-inch Powerbook and no replacement appeared on the horizon.

Of course a lot of these new rumours originate with Think Secret, and they're not exactly well known for their reliability. I guess I'm not going to be holding my breath, going on past performance it'll be well into next year before we see an ultra-portable replacement for the 12-inch. If one exists at all of course...
