Michael Arrington from TechCrunch has been talking up a tablet style MID for a while now that would feature a touchscreen and no physical keyboard. The device sounds and looks a lot like a larger iPhone and if the image that the NYT is using is accurate, the device looks like it should have an Apple logo on it too.

Arrington has reportedly incorporated a company called CrunchPad and announced that an event would be held at the end of July or in early August to make an announcement and that the device would be available for purchase as soon as possible.
The CrunchPad will not have a hard drive or a keyboard and will simply be a device for streaming video and surfing the Internet. The price is said to be under $300. For that money, you can get an iPhone that has storage and some full netbooks. Sounds like a bit of a hard sell to me.
