Ten new details about the Apple Tablet have surfaced on the Internet, stating they are from a "trusted source". The leaked information provides a look into what consumers could see in 2010 from Apple. If the information is accurate, we will see a 10" iPod Touch like tablet device.
According to iLounge.com, the list of ten items indicates that the Apple tablet device, iPad as they call it, will be very similar to a giant 10" iPod touch. The device runs the same operating system as the iPhone and iPod touch, coming in two variations, one with 3G capabilities and one without. The tablet is said to have a higher resolution, expected to be five to six times larger than that of the iPhone and iPod touch.
The device is intended for media purposes, web surfing, gaming, applications and reading. The tablet isn't meant to compete with netbooks or laptops, but be used as a portable media device. The source of the information claims Apple will announce the device details on or before January 19, 2010. The estimated release date is May or June, around the same time Apple released their previous iPhone line ups.
