Last Minute Leaked Photos of Apple Tablet? [Updated]

012324 01 27 10apptabprtop

Engadget posts a possible image of what appears to be the Apple Tablet.

Okay, we obviously can't confirm this, but we just got two very interesting images of what certainly looks like a prototype Apple tablet, or what could be the tablet bolted down to a table. It's big -- really big -- and it's running what clearly looks like an iPhone app, although we've never seen an iPhone app with that interface or at that resolution before.

The site isn't convinced that the image is legitimate. The device appears to have a very iPhone-like Maps application with UI elements consistent with the current iPhone. Obviously, the screen is much larger with a much larger viewing area. There appears to be a home button at the bottom of the device, and a Wi-Fi signal near the top with "No Service" indicating no cellular service at the time the photo was taken.

The black cloaking could be consistent with security measures in place by Apple according to a 2009 New York Times article:

Work spaces are typically monitored by security cameras, this employee said. Some Apple workers in the most critical product-testing rooms must cover up devices with black cloaks when they are working on them, and turn on a red warning light when devices are unmasked so that everyone knows to be extra-careful, he said.

Update: Engadget has updated its story with another image from the same source, this one somewhat blurry but showing an iPhone placed on top of the tablet for size comparison.

A can't find today any need for a tablet except reading books/text (which there are lighter and more comfortable options). For browsing, I can use a smartphone or a laptop. I'll buy a tablet at the time it will be cabable of running desktop apps. Then I could plug it in a monitor, pair bluetooth input devices and use that as a workstation when I need. Perhaps it will happen at the launch of Windows 8 or 9 / and iOS 6 or 7.


Most people agree, and those iPad things sold like crap. Good thing nobody had windows tabs that did all those things years ago. They would have sold like hotcakes. </sarcasm>

I love how on page 1 people are assuming you will be required to have ATT or Verizon to use it, also that it would be CHEAPER with 3g, and how this "is just a giant iphone who would want that"
