"Apple Tablet" Video Surfaces
[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHRSDWZC_m4]YouTube - IS THIS THE APPLE MACTABLET AKA TABLETMAC ?![/ame]
An interesting, fairly sophisticated, almost certainly fake video of a tablet-like device is making the rounds this weekend. Highlighted by the French site Nowhereelse.fr, the video shows a thin tablet that looks like nothing so much as a large iPod touch. No source is given for the video.
The purported Apple tablet is shown running software that resembles the iPhone OS, with familiar screen elements like icons and a Cover Flow-like display. As the video demonstrates the user accessing a website, shopping for furniture, accelerometer movements are used to navigate through the content. The demo is pretty slick, and provides a convincing use case of a device that matches, in most particulars, the Apple tablet that has been described in the various leaks, rumors, and wild guesses over recent months.
Whoever made this video, it's most likely not an example of actually functional hardware. The display seems to be pretty clearly motion-tracked: notice at the beginning of the video how the screen display doesn't keep up with the movements of the "tablet."
All of this raises the question of who would go to all the trouble of making such a video. If Apple didn't pay for it, encourage it, or have a hand in it in some way, they sure are getting a lot of pre-release publicity for the device for free.

Someone check the aspect ratio to see if it was shot with an iPhone then sent to youtube!!!!
I'd imagine that if it was Apple Devs playing with it they'd have iphones.
I hate the idea of this thing altogether and I think its pointless and stupid but if its here its here.
Like said above, if it's fake too much effort was put into it.

Fake or not, it does look well done. We'll just have to wait 'n see ...I'd prefer the iphone 4G with these features though, as this looks too large. Imagine what would happen to the screen and it's internal bits if it was suddenly knocked out of your hand or fell during the rush hour hustle for the train?

Fake. Done in Postproduction. Just a nice interface design + good planar/2d tracking + color integration.

Heh... XAPHAIS 's avatar is Afro Samurai <- really off topic
If this was the tablet, then this might be the first product that doesn't sell well in forever except the Newton.
Thankfully, it isn't. I don't know if anybody else found this, but look at the part right before the person's about to tap the couch chair thing. the white box popped up about .3 ms before he actually taps it. This would only happen if the screen was something like Dell's all in one touchscreen media center PC where the camera was mounted along the edge of the screen and therefore reads the taps before the person actually taps it. Judging form the video, though, this "tablet" sports no such hardware.-btung

fake as hell. If youll notice, the "x" woud have been on the left, rather than the right, just like the iPhone. And notice the keyboard clicks in the background. faaaakkkkeeee
