    The last picture shows a cooporation run by apple registering a lot of domains and stuff on the name iSLATE.
    Most of rumors just say that it will be a oversized iPhone, but with OS4.
    Nothing very straight so far, but lets see where it gets us!
    They say it will be released with OS4 on the 27th of january, on the big apple announcement show.

    Very interesting, I haven't seen that top photo before. I sure hope that width is accurate!

    When I do a domain look up for islate.com, I'm still showing:

    Well, from the measures of that tablet shown here, i'd say its just an oversozed iPhone, but the OS and the functionallities will make the difference. I wonder if you can make calls with it by using 3g Networks instead of doing it via wifi and skype...

    cuz then, maybe there will be no more iPhones :D

    It looks pretty damn big in my opinion. This wont be used as a phone right? If not the iphone will still be in buisness.

    I don't think it will be an iPhone replacement.... More like a netbook replacement.

    Agreed with this, i doubt it will be an iphone replacement, from what i understand the new iphones should be released tomorrow in the press announcement.

    It's possible that it might have a phone feature to it, but i doubt it, i'm with dan on this one, i think it's there to replace a netbook. Why would they add a phone to it if they want you to buy the new gen iphone?

    It's possible, not saying it's not, just i don't think it's probable. The tablet is alittle bigger then an ipod to iphone conversion.

    Yeah, but mostly every apple product now a days has music on them. It would suck if this one didnt. The phone i dont see now becuase the thing is huge to put on your ear.

    Sorry my bad, yes music will 100% be added into the device, but i'm just not sure about a phone feature, it's a 10.1 inch screen, and that's a pretty decent sized item, so that's why i'm saying i'm just not sure it would have a phone feature to it.
