Seems like the Apple tablet device is a ‘more or less’ confirmed product, even the reliable [Financial Times](http://www.ft.com/cms/s/28129982-7a18-11de-b86f-00144feabdc0,Authorised=false.html?_i_location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ft.com%2Fcms%2Fs%2F0%2F28129982-7a18-11de-b86f-00144feabdc0.html%3Fnclick_check%3D1&_i_referer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pcworld.com%2Fbusinesscenter%2Farticle%2F169085%2Fbetter_apple_rumor_800_tablet_by_christmas_really.html&nclick_check=1) has an article which confirms a September release for the new device. Some sites has predicted an early 2010 release.
From the rumors, the much-anticipated tablet has:
* 9.7-inch multi touch screen.
* Some said it looks like a jumbo iPod touch.
* 3G-enaled. Some said it will include LTE as well.
* Will not have a phone.
* Will price between the high-end iPhone and the most affordable MacBook. Some said $800.
* Possibility of Verizon Wireless as provider for Internet access in US.
Questions remain. Will it sports an Intel or ARM CPUs? Will it run Mac OS X or iPhone OS or a brand new operating system? Will Apple open a new eBook marketplace in iTunes to compete with Amazon Kindle?
Let’s look at some mockup pictures:
