Apple would NEVER: A.1) List a processor without a model number. A.2) List a non-ULV processor for a netbook. A.3) List a 2.26GHz processor on a netbook when it would primarily be whacked down with power management options. A.4) List a L2 cache size on a separate specification. B.1) List two SODIMMs in a 7-inch netbook. C.1) List a non-SSD in an ultra-mobile format. C.2) List a hard drive as "SATA" without specifying which generation SATA. C.3) List a 4200-rpm drive on a power managed netbook. D.1) Include a built-in projector on an ultra-mobile design that wouldn't put out at least remotely decent image quality. D.2+ (see below)) Include a built-in projector on a presumably single piece tablet. How would you stand it up? E.1) List the size 7", then proceed to classify as a 7.1" screen, if they weren't to put out presumably at least one more size, which they would not, considering its an untapped market for Apple. E.2) Make a 7" non-single-piece netbook / tablet multi-touch. They also probably wouldn't call it iSlate unless it were presumably a single-piece tablet. There's also plenty of things that would contradict itself on the specs sheet if it were a folding netbook / tablet. And if this iSlate has its own "iSlate development document" paperwork, this would've been more than the first few times I've heard the term.

I call BS on the projector. The processor seems a little fast for a tablet and "Cloud Leopard" is a lame name... Otherwise this would be a must buy if this speculation is true.

That has to be fake...it still says that the AirPort chip conforms to IEEE 802.11n draft specifications, while 802.11n specifications have already been finalized back in September.

Meh..... It won't be iPhone thin with a 2.24GHz processor, a fan will need to be utilized to keep it cool. Buth a .8"-1.0" tablet has already been made by many windows UMPCs and Tablets. As far as a widget based homescreen, Windows Origami project has been doing that for 3 years on xp and vista tablets, so again nothing new. Way to pretend you innovate mac when all you do is copy Microsoft but make it look like a big iPhone.

Um..Windows Origami looks like Dashboard. Dashboard was introduced in Tiger 2005. And it Still has that stupid start button. Doesn't work on touch device. Windows 7 dock bar looks likes OS X 5 years ago.

Hard to trust anonymous sources. Specs look great. The projector sounds cool but seems odd for apple(makes me doubt the credibility of this) that's also a large processor for a tablet, battery life would be horrible on a machine with such a powerful processor and a small battery. And I dunno if apple would allow that with their new focus on battry power. Oh well looks cool, sounds cool, I'd buy it if it was well below a grand, but I question the authenticity and credibilty of this article. Then again, it is phone arena...

just to refute, it could be liquid cooled.. but yea, that doesnt really seem plausable. faaaake!

sounds like a fake to me, anyone else notice there was no specs regarding the 3g/4g wireless module?

No way! These are 2008 device specs. Clouded mind more like it.

120GB at 4200RPM, 2.26MHZ and no specs on camera plus more odd looking things like the names... sorry we don't believe you on this one Apple they most prob put it out there as some companies do to learn who the snitchs are in the business.. i've seen it happen before in electrical companies to ex out people who can't stick to confidenciallity agreements.

The "specs" sactually said 2.26GHZ. right online with other apple products. But I still agree. It's a fake. And yeah4200rpm? WTF?

How about the fact that the document is set in Arial. This couldn't be more fake.
14. tape (Posts: 1; Member since: 04 Jan 2010)
obvious fake. Apple would never use Arial on any document for any reason ever.

I think the Apple Tablet is just the beginning of a new series of Multi Touch Portable computershttp://blog.nothinggrinder.com
