Apple News | Apple Developing Tablet Screens From 4-12 Inches

In a research note, it was revealed that Apple has bought screen sizes of 4 to 12 inches over the last two years. Some of the purchases were allegedly of such a large amount that the firm suspects they were for more than a simple sample, but a more significant small production run. Based on that information, the analysis predicts that Apple will launch at least one -- but possibly multiple -- new devices in the near future.

"... Apple's expected new tablet device, with a 10" display and integrated 3G service, will arrive no sooner than early 2010. Akin to a jumbo iPod touch, the device is said to be the latest brainchild of chief executive Steve Jobs, and a modern day reincarnation of the company's defunct Newton MessagePad..."

"We are under the impression that these screens could be used in new form factors including a sub-notebook and/or tablet, and would more likely launch in 2010 as opposed to 2009," the note reads. "As usual, exact timing is always tough to pinpoint as Apple works on its own schedule." (via)
