You want more specious rumors about the new Apple iTablet? Well today is your lucky day. TechCrunch has some images of what may or may not be the on-screen interface of the Apple iTablet. These are very far from confirmed leaks, and it's entirely possible that this is just an elaborate hoax.

Assuming these are real, they show off a few cool features of the (possibly also a hoax) iTablet. For one, it looks like the tablet has a movable keyboard. That would be a seriously cool feature for a tablet to have, because it would allow you to slide your keyboard around the screen so as to not obscure whatever videos/programs you are watching. If these aren't legitimate screenshots, that's a feature I hope does make it into the iTablet UI.

These screenshots give the impression of a product made primarily for movie viewing, which gels with many of the rumors we've heard so far about the iTablet. One of the shots actually shows a summary of Inglourious Basterds, which is still in theaters and has yet to be released. All of the info on it could have come from IMDB, but I can't think of any reason a hoaxer would have for mocking up unreleased DVDs too.

Whatever the truth about these images is, we aren't likely to know until the (possible) 2010 launch. If Apple files a Cease and Desist against TechCrunch, though, we'll have confirmation that these shots have some validity to them. I doubt that will happen even if these photos are real. The last thing Apple wants to do is confirm the iTablet's existence.
