Here are some of the latest specs we believe the iSlate will have.


  • The core of the application processor is said to be ARM Cortex (8), which Apple licensed from Samsung.
  • Apple is enhancing the core processor with the help of design team from PA Semi, a company Apple bought for roughly $278 million in 2008. Apple has focused on enhancing video and graphic capabilities of the device with its internal semiconductor efforts.
  • Samsung will be the foundry for the application processor and it will also be one of the suppliers of Flash memory to Apple.
  • Qualcomm is said to be supplying the wireless wide area network (WWAN) chip for connectivity to the wireless networks.

Hey, Welcome to the forum! I sure hope that Apple puts some type of video output on the device. Microsoft has done it with the zune, and it has been a huge selling point.

It would be cool to have a docking station connected to your home entertainment that would allow the tablet to be dropped to stream videos and play music.
