It’s minutes before Apple is expected to announce the release of its new Tablet product and the press is in a frenzy to cover it. It’s been the most-talked about thing in tech for weeks.

What are people saying about it, in aggregate? We ran 50 news stories appearing on Techmeme this morning through the word analysis tool Wordle.net and unearthed the 100 most-used words across all the recent coverage in anticipation of the announcement.

Here’s what people are saying, with the words Apple and Tablet removed so we can see the other words used. We’ll do an analysis of coverage of the actual announcement shortly after word is official.

Hot topics? People are expecting the tablet to run on the iPhone OS, they are talking a lot about Engadget’s allegedly leaked photos of the tablet, people are talking a lot about a patent that was just issued last night related to the tablet. And people talked about Jason Calacanis a lot.
