It seems like even the doubters among us are starting to believe that the Apple tablet, now called the iSlate is real. We know Apple registered the domain name and the product name for a product of that name. And now, thanks to Digitimes, we know that the touchscreen panels for this upcoming tablet will come from Innolux, a subsidiary of Foxconn. This rumor, which comes from "sources" among Apple component suppliers, states that the iSlate was delayed until Q1 2010 because Apple wanted to find ways to strengthen the glass of the 10" panel. Foxconn subsidiary G-Tech Optoelectronics has been tapped to provide a glass-strengthening process in order to make the panels meet Apple standards.The iSlate is expected to be announced in January of 2010, either at an Apple show or at CES 2010. Mass shipments are expected to start in March or April. It's worth noting again that the iSlate still has yet to be confirmed by Apple. This and all Apple tablet rumors should be taken with a hefty grain of salt until the product is officially announced.
