Am I the only one not getting suckered into these rumors of an impending islate/tablet? Ok it may be true about this glass but it is just as possible, in fact even more so that It is for the next iPhone/iPod touch. These devices actually exist, use glass screens, and at least one of them will have a new model this year(iPhone) so it stands to reason that the new glass is for the new model which will be, if it's not already, in mass production soon. Anyone who remembers the rumored bezels for the iPhone mini and redisigned bezels for the iPhone that appeared around this time last year knows rumors that include parts are iffy. And if u remember those pics of an iPod touch with a camera(that was all scratched up) then u know even pics of a product can't fully be trusted. I even remeber pcs of the iPhone 3G before it was announced, they looked just like the iPhone 3g but came in red also. And this was when the 3g was just a rumor. All this proves u gotta take it with a grain of salt.

Who cares... Windows has had tablets FOREVER!!!!! Way to play catch-up apple and pretend like you are innovating something that you are blatantly just copying from others and your iPhone. Apple is the John Williams of the computer industry.

The amazing part is that tablets will be popular... thus invigorating the tablet market. Though from what I have read the islate will be a much more manageable formfactor and weight. Tablets have always been to bulky and heavy.
