Apple's fabled iTablet hasn't even been formally announced yet, and already the entire world knows of its existence. For a company that prides itself on secrecy, this whole thing has been a glaring loss of control for Apple. And it continues today, with a leak from a Taiwanese newspaper who has identified some of the component suppliers for Steve Jobs' new brainchild.

Wintek is doing the display, while Dynapack is making the batteries. The device itself will be assembled by Foxconn. Could it be possible that it wasn't an iPhone that Sun Danyong lost, but a prototype iTablet? Maybe that's where this latest spate of leaks sprang from.
All in all, we still don't know a whole lot about what capabilities the iTablet will actually have. From what we've been told, the iTablet will work like a giant iPod touch with the functionality and processing power of a netbook computer. It's supposed to be able to handle a wide variety of games, as well as act as an eBook reader and media manager. There are even rumors of Apple TV coming to the tablet.

This iTablet is what Apple sees as the future of their company, the next big thing after the iPhone. They want to create a mobile entertainment device that can become as ubiquitous and widespread as the iPhone. If Apple can deliver all the functions of a Kindle, a Netbook, a gaming console and a television, they just might achieve that goal. At $600-$1000 a piece, I'd buy one.
