The Nexus One might be on the tip of mobile industry’s tongue right now, but that hasn’t slowed the number of alleged Applet “iSlate” Tablet rumors coming to light. And, this latest Apple Tablet rumor is a doozy. The folks over at PhoneArena have gotten their hands on what purports to be a Apple internal documents that basically spells out the rumored iSlate’s specifications. The docs aren’t confirmed in any way at this point. But, if true, the not-yet-announced Apple iSlate will be a monster of a tablet.
The iSlate’s surprisingly impressive hardware specs are enough to tickle our geeky-bone, but there’s one specific spec that really gets our attention. According to the supposed leaked documents, the iSlate will run something known as Mac OS X 10.7 Clouded Leopard. The new operating system is expected to be a touchscreen-friendly version of Mac OS X that uses a new widget-based homscreen. It’s not clear if Clouded Leopard will actually do any cloud computing.
As for the impressive specs we mentioned. Take a gander at Apple’s rumored specs for their tablet computer:
- Precision aluminum unibody
- 7.1-inch capacitive multi-touch touchscreen with some sort of “intelligent feedback” and an anti-fingerprint coating
- 2.26Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor
- 2GB DDR3 SDRAM
- 120GB hard drive
- Built-in projector
- Built-in iSight camera
- 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
- Mac OS X 10.7 Clouded Leopard
That’s one helluva spec-sheet, but there’s one big thing missing. There’s no mention of any 3G wireless connectivity. That’s a really important feature for a mobile device like the iSlate.
If any of this is true, we’ll have more information by Jan. 26th, when Apple is expected to make their tablet announcement.
