Nothing like starting off the day with some good old-fashioned gadgetry speculation in the form of yet another leaked photo of a highly anticipated piece of technology. With the PlayStation 3 Slim rumors hopefully getting the official announcement treatment this week at GamesCom 2009 in Germany, Apple’s long rumored, yet expected-to-be-released-sometime-soon, tablet device (iTab?) has officially taken the top spot in terms of most speculated about product.
Today’s images, as reported by Boy Genius Report, come from a French blog with a fairly reliable track record with these kinds of things, and apparently show the tablet running a version of Apple’s OS X, which is peculiar, since it’s long been assumed that the device would run some form of the iPhone OS. Another odd detail is the whereabouts of the home button, which sits in the middle of one of the lengthwise sides, as opposed to a shorter side where users hands would most likely be while holding the device.
While the images certainly aren't the prettiest ones I've seen recently, the device doesn't come across as totally illogical. In fact, it looks pretty much like I would expect such a device to look. However, as always, these are unconfirmed pictures, so until you are drooling dangerously close to the device at your local Apple store, don’t read too much into them.
What’s been your favorite “leaked” photo of Apple’s tablet device so far?
