Pretty much every tech geek and his mother have come out with a rendering of the Apple iTablet. Renderings aren't photos, however, and we still have no proof as to whether or not this new supposed tablet is anything but a pipe dream. Today might mark the change of that.

Boy Genius brings us a link to what looks like a photo of a new Apple tablet, courtesy of a French blog with a solid reputation. There are a few things odd about this image, primarily the positioning of the 'home' screen button and the fact that it appears to run OS X. All prior rumors we've heard suggest the tablet was meant to be an iPhone OS device. If Apple is going for a netbook type of device, however, actually using OS X makes perfect sense.

This is far from a smoking gun. While this image looks like a real picture of something, it's still entirely possible that it could be a hoax. Or a prototype for a product that will never see the light of day. I'd be lying if I didn't say this picture has my hopes up, however. If this thing is real, we won't know until early 2010. Most analysts expect this Fall to be time for the new iPods to shine.
