Apple Tablet Rumored To Launch In Early 2010

Posted: Updated:

Rumors surrounding the launch of Apple's mythical touchscreen Tablet computer have been swirling, and here's one more to add to the mix: the Tablet could hit markets as soon as the first quarter of 2010.

According to DigiTimes, which got the scoop:

Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) will be the manufacturing partner for an upcoming tablet PC device from Apple, according to market sources. The device is expected to hit the market in the first quarter of 2010, with initial shipments from Foxconn being in the 300,000-400,000 range, the sources said.

The device will have a 10.6-inch display, and the sources speculated that perhaps Foxconn could secure panels from its subsidiary Innolux Display.

DigiTimes' source also reports that the device will focus on e-reader capabilities, rather than music.

Among other rumors concerning the Tablet, the web has been buzzing with hints of the content deals it is reportedly negotiating with print publishers. Read more about that here.
