Did you think the first iPad was a little...lacking? Small? Anemic? If so, you might be in luck. TechCrunch has information from a "good" but second-hand source that Apple has another tablet close to launch. This device will have a larger screen than the iPad, and be closer to an iMac than an iPhone. In fact, it might even run on Apple's OS X.

This new iPad could go up to 15.4" in size. If that turns out to be the case, it will likely come bundled with its own keyboard/dock. It seems like Apple is looking to introduce a "home" tablet that has a broader array of capabilities but lacks the portability of the current iPad. We could see this new wonder-tablet as early as this June, during the WWDC conference. Or Apple may wait until the Fall so that it can get this baby out in stores in time for the holiday shopping season.

All Apple rumors should be taken with a grain of salt. No one is better than Apple at misdirection and hiding new releases. That said...a big, "desktop replacement" tablet could work out very well for Apple. As always, time will either bear this rumor out or bury it.
