Earlier today, Engadget has posted more images of the rumored Apple Tablet (iPad). But this time, they look more close to reality than ever. These images are the closest they can get to the real Apple tablet. Do not be confused by what you see in these images. The iPad, it seems, is bolted to a tablet, for the reason not known to us.
These are the things we have been able to decipher from these images:
- The Apple tablet is nearly as big as everyone claims it to be, coming very close to 10 inches. We can guess its size from its comparison with the iPhone in the second leaked image shown below.
- It is certainly not running on any version of Mac OSX. It seems to be running on iPhone OS, but we have not seen any variation of iPhone OS, which runs on such a big resolution.
- Engadget is also claiming that they have seen a Wi-fi indicator as well as a cell service indicator, but there are no carriers listed for now.
Interestingly, there are also some more leaked specs, about the Apple tablet:
- The device certainly looks like a bigger iPhone with a Macbook like aluminum back.
- The leaked pricing details point to a $800 price for the device if you get a contract with Verizon, but will be priced at $1000 when it will be released in March.
- The biggest mystery will remain a mystery until the device is officially launched by Apple at the event. It seems unlikely that the device will actually be named as “iPad” for: The name has leaked too much on the websphere, it seems a bit feminine, and Apple will be willing to surprise us all with a new name. But still iSlate/iTablet look more promising going by the history of devices launched in the past by Apple.
- The insiders and employees are still calling it by the code name “K48″.
There are no more convincing pics and specs about the device for now. Even we are too much excited with the hype around the device that Apple has been successful in gathering. We will be following the event, as well as the updates on Apple tablet very closely. We will be reporting in detail about the device via live streaming. In case, you are also interested in following it (which we are sure most of you are !), you can also follow it through live streaming.
