RUMOR: Photo of 10-inch Apple tablet face plate leaked (with photo)

“A source has sent us a photograph of what he claims to be the glass to be used in Apple’s as-yet unannounced tablet device,” Bryan Chaffin reports for The Mac Observer.

The photo “is just the glass, which looks a lot like a large iPod,” Chaffin reports. “According to our source, the glass measures 10″ on the diagonal.”

Chaffin reports, “We weren’t able to double source the image, but we do trust the source that provided us with the image.”

  1. I don’t think so. Why is there a -proximity sensor- (the small horizontal line) at the top?

    It’s there for a reason on an iPhone – because the iPhone needs to sense when you hold it up to your ear (or pocket it) so that it can turn off the screen.

    With a 10″ tablet, you’re not going to be doing that. No need for a proximity sensor.

    (Unless you were a giant).

  2. Let’s keep an open mind here people that could be a speaker hole(You would like it to do audio, correct?) Perhaps it is a microphone for audio input… Maybe it blasts a laser outta there for that rare occasion when some idiot picks it up and starts bad mouthing Apple… See, the possibilities are infinite ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

  3. Fake. Tablet will probably be wide-screen if anything. Also, (just guessing) Apple probably won’t have that much space around the border. The front will probably be 99% screen.

  4. “I don’t think so. Why is there a -proximity sensor- (the small horizontal line) at the top?”


    There are two proximity sensors on the iPhone 3G/3GS. They are small almost invisible circles to the left side of the horizontal opening. The third circle is the ambient light sensor. The horizontal opening is the speaker port/earpiece for regular phone calls.

    Do you have an iPhone?

    What do you know about what Apple thinks we need as far a sensors on the new device?

  5. Obviously fake. You see, my sources have informed me that the new tablet will not even have a screen. It will connect directly to your retinas via bluetooth using a revolutionary new technology code named “Blue eyes”.
