  • Is This Our First Look At Apple's Tablet?


    Fat chance.

    At least that's my estimation in response to the photos that surfaced overnight with claims that they are, in fact, the first public images of the still mythical Apple tablet. Even our friends at Tech Crunch are reluctant to speculate as to the veracity of these images, but that hasn't stopped plenty of folks from believing that they have finally seen the promised land.

    Who knows if these are real, but these are easily the most legitimate looking pictures I’ve ever seen of the supposed Apple Tablet/iPad/iSlate/iBook/Whatever It Will Be Called. Further, UI designer Dustin Curtis tells us a friend sent him these pictures — and from what we hear, that friend could work at Apple (he wouldn’t confirm that).
    Although the above photo has all the trappings of a set-up ripe for the gullible among us, I tend to land on the side of caution and mostly agree with the conspiracy theorists who speculate that this is merely a nicely Photoshopped characterization of what the real thing will look like.

    According to Charlie Sorrel of Gadget Lab:

    Still, it might be my favorite mock-up so far, if only because the super-simple slab-like design fits with my idea of what the actual tablet will look like.


    At this point, who cares to argue? We'll know soon enough if the "leaked photo" is legit, as Apple will likely unveil the real thing tomorrow in San Francisco. Of course, as one observer put it, we may not even be able to adequately envision all that the tablet will encompass. And it turns out that this has become a widely held view, particularly in the wake of Steve Jobs "prophetic" comments in Apple's earnings announcement yesterday.
    "The new products we are planning to release this year are very strong, starting this week with a major new product that we're really excited about."

      unlike all you cynics, this looks real to me. Seriously. And it fits with the Apple design aesthetic. I'll take it.

      Ha, they removed my post. Pussies. It's not easy being right all the time, let me tell you. I guess more "news" than rumors, speculation and carrier BS is too much to ask for from "the leading iPhone site". I'm done. I'll just search on Google News from now on. :/

      EDIT: Even better, just like MacRumors, we might as well change the name here to iPhoneRumors since the focus is not even anywhere near modding anymore. What a downfall.

      The tablet won't have any volume buttons on the side, it's just a picture based of an iPhone that had been made bigger.

      MODERATORS AND EDITORS, after whatever is released tomorrow I wouldn't mind seeing a post that sifts through what rumors were BS and what came true!!

      I'm betting this tablet experiment is going to be an epic fail. A portable computer without a keyboard, camera, and hard-case to protect the 10 inch glass

      Anything that gives you more traffic is good lol. I bet the OP knew it was fake as it's so easy to see unless you're a computer illiterate.
