New reports just came through saying that the design for the Apple Tablet is similar to all the concepts made by people a while back but with even more similarities to the iPhone. The buttons and features are said to be almost identical to the newest iPhone, the iPhone 3GS.
Here are the details:
Nestled in an aluminum shell that leverages the Apple’s expertise in unibody construction but thinner proportionality than the original iPhone, the tablet reportedly sports all of the same buttons found on the handset, right down to its iconic home button — which, like the volume toggle, is missing from the rendering.
Similarly, the tablet is said to sport all the same in/out connectivity as the current iPhone 3GS, including a 3.5-mm stereo headphone jack, built-in speaker grills, a microphone, GPS, 3G connectivity and a 30-pin dock connector. Like the rendering, its 10-inch display is framed by a black border that bleeds into its wrap-around aluminum enclosure.
Also, this Tablet may be compatible with CDMA wireless networks such as Verizon’s network, which would be really suprising although this is not confirmed just yet. More details will come about this Apple Tablet in the near future.
