Apple Working on 10-, 13-, and 15-Inch Tablets?
This source claims that the two touchscreen prototypes -- made of aluminum, but on the shape of big iPhones -- were in a factory in Shenzuen, China. One of them "was running Mac OS X 10.5." When I asked, the source didn't know if these were built for demonstration purposes, or if they were preproduction units. The company has a tight relation with Apple but "it's not FoxConn."Recent rumors have pointed to a tablet introduction later this year or early next year, but most reports have claimed that the device would carry an approximately 10-inch screen. Rumors of other possible sizes have surfaced, however, with one report asserting that Apple had at least investigated screens ranging from 4 to 12 inches and another claiming that Apple will be releasing two tablets, one with a 6-inch screen.
