Two new consumer surveys shed light on what consumers want from the Apple tablet computer expected to be unveiled next week.

ChangeWave Research talked with more than 3,000 consumers earlier this month, and found there is a “strong interest” in an Apple tablet, with four percent saying they are “very likely” and 14 percent saying they’re “somehwat likely” to buy one.

Retrevo.com, a consumer electronics buying guide site, surveyed 500 people, asking consumers what they’re willing to pay, and what features they need to see to make them pull the trigger.
