Photos of Apple Tablet Back Shell Leaked?


With less than two hours to go before Apple's media event, Gizmodo has posted three images that briefly appeared on Chinese website WeiPhone appearing to show the back shell of an Apple device of approximately the tablet's expected size. The photos, which appear to depict several such shells in an industrial setting, quickly disappeared from the site.




Earlier today, Engadget posted what appears to be images of the front of the tablet device, which has been bolted down to a table and partially covered by a black cloth in the images.

That’s just what I’ve always pictured: MacBook Air on the bottom, iPhone on top. I hope it’s like this instead of the more rounded 1st-gen iPhone style backs we’ve been seeing. Round is nice, but it does add some needless size.

I was hoping (as a developer) for a 2:3 aspect ration to match the iPhone—but that may be constrained by what displays are readily available and proven.

This is a Radiation testing facility.

I hope there isn't an accident that unleashes a Hulk tablet that smashes all the other tablets.

Fake... Apple makes everything in an assembly line method, not like that (4 at a time). It would be a waste of resources, time and money...

Fake... next

Besides, that looks like Aluminum, we need the plastic bar to help with radio waves for Wi-Fi and supposedly included 3G radio.


Haha, look how wrong you were! :D
