It’s rare to get Steve Jobs excited over anything, since he’s launched some of the most important gadgets in modern history, but it seems that the Apple Tablet got to him. Sources close to Jobs claim that he was overheard saying that the Apple iPad “will be the most important thing” he’s ever done.

Multiple sources are confirming this info, like senior Apple execs and Steve’s friends, so this means that the big boss is pretty excited about the new product. We remind you that Apple is supposed to announce the device on Wednesday, January 27th, in San Francisco (Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater) together with iPhone OS 4.0.

We’re also pleased by the fact that we’ll most likely see Steve Jobs back on the stage,  holding his keynote in his typical way.
